We continue with the “American” mood for this week. After the Viking 58 Convertible and the Sea Ray SLX-R 400e, let’s take a look at another stars and stripes boat: the Bertram 35.

Bertram 35: born from Bertram 31

It’s not a simple boat. It’s an authentic icon. A symbol of Made in the USA. And it could not be otherwise. It is enough to read its history to fully understand what Bertram has represented and still represents for the American shipbuilding industry. It all started more than 50 years ago from the meeting between the designer Raymond Hunt and Dick Bertram.

Hence the 31-foot project immediately gained attention by winning the Miami-Nassau offshore race in 1961. The rest is history.

Bertram 35, the heir

The Bertram 31 was an unprecedented commercial success and is the model which the new Bertram 35 is inspired. It is not a last-minute novelty, having been presented in 2017, but still remains the first stage of a new course that promises to be very interesting.

The waterlines are by Michael Peters. The hull, which features a waterline length of 9.44 meters, is made with the infusion technique and has kevlar reinforcements. In terms of layout, the main strength remains the cockpit that can be used for offshore fishing or as an entertainment area. Available in a flybridge convertible version or with the classic tuna tower, Bertram 35 offers a cabin with a double bed, galley, and dinette.
