The Bertram 61 is revolutionizing the deep-vee hull in the 21st century, paying homage to the iconic 1980s Bertram 54. Advanced construction and state-of-the-art propulsion and technology provide unmatched performance, allowing this vessel to run smoother, faster and shallower than any other boat of this size. The new 61′ is equipped with the most sophisticated mechanical and electrical systems, delivering luxury accommodations for long-distance adventures, and tournament-winning level sportfishing. The sharp lines and crisp styling will feel familiar to Bertram enthusiasts, but the stunning interior is unlike anything the marine industry has ever experienced, in this category.
The 61 Convertible offers a three en-suite head, stateroom layout, including a full-beam master. The open salon and galley design is optimized for both living space and plentiful storage, featuring a forward panoramic glass window.

Deck and Flybridge
The 61 convertible features a large 188 sq. ft cockpit, equipped with a 30-gallon live bait well with an aquarium view , port/stbd. insulated fish boxes, LED lighting, and mezzanine speakers. Guests and crew can cook up a day’s catch on the starboard Kenyon electric grill which can also be utilized for hook and lure storage, while out hunting for billfish. Two custom refrigerated compartments border the cushioned mezzanine seating accompanied by a removable cup holder console.
The under-mezzanine engine room provides access to twin CAT32A diesel engines, Seakeeper gyro stabilizer (standard on all models) and Onan generator(s). Make your way upstairs to the spacious flybridge , furnished with cushioned lounge seating throughout and two Murray helm chairs. Captain and guests enjoy their favorite tunes with the Fusion stereo system… Don’t worry, the Captain won’t need to go anywhere to control any part of the boat, with the Octoplex ships controlmultifunction display at the tip of his fingers even mechanics in the engine room, or lights left on in the galley. The simple and modern helm station is equipped with a custom teak helm pod , Palm Beach controls with integrated bow thruster control, CAT Marine 7″ color displays, stainless steel Ongaro tournament steering wheel and a Kahlenberg marine air horn.
Notable to the 61 is the open interior, attributed to the custom-molded panoramic salon window a nod to traditional sportfish yachts, done now using top-of-the-line technology and near military-grade glass. Panoramic overhead designer cabinetry lines the molded glass, providing abundant storage throughout the salon and galley. Natural light, eyes on the horizon and a considerable amount of storage. Let us know if we’re missing anything…
Available in two different decor packages, the interior design is one of innovation, luxury and comfort. Whether watching the big sports game or an endless supply of DVDs on the 55″ LED Smart TV, guests are guaranteed to enjoy the large custom U-shaped salon sofa (with plentiful storage underneath), or the custom bar stools, belly-up to the salon bar after a long day on the water. When it’s time to relax, overhead lighting on dimmer switches will help set the mood.
Top-of-the-line appliances please the galley aficionado. Including a Miele microwave/convection oven, Kenyon four-burner induction cooktop and SubZero double-drawer refrigerator/freezer units. Noteworthy on the new 61′ is the full-beam master stateroom with queen berth. Something you’d typically only find on a larger yacht. Additional staterooms include a starboard VIP twin berth and forward VIP queen (with optional v-berth layout ).

The companionway is home to a stacking washer, dryer unit and a large linen closet with custom cedar shelving.
