New Model: Bertram 50 Hardtop

It is magic when a new Bertram model is out, and here is hull one of the first 50 making its first sea trial before being presented at the 2020 Miami boat show.  Hull one of the Bertram 50 was fitted as a cruiser version, meaning no tower and outriggers.  The 50 is a sleek machine which pays a lot of respect to the history of Bertram, see broken shear line, and important fore deck.  But the new Bertram also looks at the future with a variety of options and apart the sportfish or cruiser fittings, the 50 will also be available in an Open variant, while the Hardtop version can also be specified with a fully enclosed patio door.  The Bertram 50 features a lower deck layout with galley, saloon dinette, two cabins, and two heads; owners cabin forward with en-suite bath to starboard, guest cabin with twin bunk berths to port and private shower head.  The Bertram 50 is powered by twin Cats 1150hp and at testing hull one has peaked at a whooping 43 knots.
