New Model: Bertram 511

Bertram 511 is the latest breakthrough sport-fish yacht from the US builder which captures the classic spirit of earlier Bertram models. Designed by Zuccon the new 511 exudes an edge and modern appeal from its previous predecessors, without compromising the traditional look of a Bertram boat. It offers a full wrap around windshield as seen on the great looker that is the 540 introduced last year. The windshield is designed and tested to withstand the roughest offshore conditions, and yet with careful planning the interior storage is not compromised. This unique Bertram feature, so far only available on this new 511 and the 540 makes also for an incredible 360 degree view of the surrounding water while out in the ocean, and is a great asset for capturing the wide open seas with a clear view of what lies ahead. If desired a second lower helm station is also available as an option. Going back to its Sportfish Yacht business the 511 is fully loaded with amenities vital to the dedicated angler, including generous storage integrated into the standard mezzanine deck in the cockpit, ample seating which allows one to relax while trolling the high seas waiting for the next bite, and a large fish box with removable tub in the cockpit sole which can be used to store the days catch along with a second fish box that is located in the transom. Accommodation includes three well-appointed staterooms, with the mid ship cabins featuring hull-side windows that are incorporated throughout to provide natural light to the guests below deck. Whether you are a longtime, dedicated angler or simply enjoy a relaxing day out at sea, it will be inviting and invigorating to experience the 511. Like all Bertram's, the 511 has extra wide walk around side decks, and available exclusive Ferretti Group Mitsubishi Anti-Roll gyro technology, both these offering major safety factors. Other advantages include the renowned legendary Bertram trademark deep-V hull which is a further development of the 50 model introduced in the nineties, full beam to the stern for maximum cockpit space, vibration isolating engine mounts, a single fuel tank amidships with no fuel pumps that can be filled from port or starboard, and U-shaped flybridge seating available with optional table for Al fresco dining up top. Power is from standard twin MAN of 1100hp or optional V12s 1360hp. A smaller Cat engines options at 1050hp each is also available. The large MAN option delivers 39 knots top speed, and a fast cruise of 35. Range is 490 nautical miles allowing in this for a ten per cent reserve of fuel, and with an economic 30 knots cruise speed.
