In this year, the Bertram 60 was introduced. It joined the 72 as a pathfinder of power, comfort and elegance.
The newly designed Bertram 30 Moppie is introduced, and was designed to appeal to cruisers and fishermen.
An enclosed-flybridge version of the 60 convertible debuted at the Miami International Boat Show.
Introduction of the 390 and 510 Convertibles to Bertram’s product line.
The four-stateroom version of the Bertram 60 was introduced and a new 30-foot Moppie sport cruiser embodied the spirit of the original’s race boat heritage.
Bertram introduced a “heart stopping” redesign of the layout and interior of the revered 54. Much to the relief of many, Bertram assured the world there was not “a single change in the 54 convertible hull, because you don’t change perfection.” The Bertram 46 Moppie is introduced, and was capable of speeds faster than 37 knots. This model was well suited to tournament fishing and/or Med-style cruising.
In October of 1998 Bertram was acquired by Ferretti S.p.A., one of the world’s foremost motoryacht manufacturers. Owned by boatbuilders for the first time in many years, Bertram is well on its way to expanding its product line and strengthening its position as the world’s foremost builder of sportfishing boats.
