How Bertram Internnational Began

Richard Bertram broke through the above 50’ Yacht overseas before he ever built in the US.  To translate the virtues of the deep-V hull into high-performance yachts at least 50 feet long, he founded Bertram International. Built in Yokosuka City, Japan, Bertram gave the rights to the company to build the first 56’ with the Bertram name attached and as a result was called the Bertram International.  The yachts he built succeeded quickly, and in 1969, aboard his 56-foot Bertram International yacht “Envoy”, he set a Miami-New York nonstop record of 54 hours 8 minutes. 

Vessel Walkthrough

Stepping onto “BROKE AND DRUNK” from the custom boarding ladder, you will enter into the main salon through the reverse Gull-wing doors. There is a full size sofa to starboard with a large easy chair and a custom adjustable dining table with two chairs to port.  Moving forward is the lower station and down the circular steps is the full size galley and dinette table that could seat six.  Forward is the VIP Stateroom with V-Berths and the guest head to port. Heading from the galley aft to starboard, is the laundry room, the 2nd guest head and the guest stateroom to port with twin, single berths. Further aft will take you past the engine rooms with a four door opening for easy access to the big 12V71 Natural motors.  The master stateroom is aft with the largest custom bed you will ever find on a yacht with plenty of storage under and night stands on each side.  The master head is forward and to starboard.  Walking back up and out to the aft deck, you will find plenty of room to entertain out of the weather equipped with a portable AC unit.  Climbing up the ladder takes you to the flybridge that gives you 360 degrees of visibility and plenty of area to entertain while underway.
