The Bertram Legacy
Bertram Yacht got its start in 1960 when founder Dick Bertram-yacht broker, bluewater sailing-yacht racer, and powerboat racer-built the first Bertram, the 31-foot Glass Moppie. Built from a plug made from the original prototypel that smashed records in the 1960 Miami to Nassau Ocean Power Boat Race, the Bertram 31 launched a line of performance and sportfishing boats ranging up to 80 feet long that would be known for their excellent ride and seakeeping in unforgiving conditions. The company and its legend grew, thanks to many noteworthy models, including the Bertram 28, 46, and 54, that made their mark on the fishing world. In 2015 Bertram was acquired by a group headed by Beniamino Gavio. This boatbuilding entrepreneur and avid boater is involved with Baglietto and CCN and is committed to returning this iconic American brand back to its roots.
