    It has a nice interior. The exterior should grow on me, hopefully.

    The sky bridge is real nice. Great for docking.

    I think Bertram Enclosed Bridges are among the nicest of the production builders from the 630, 670, 700 all look good. And this 800 is no exception.
    I used to not like EBs much back in the years, then I saw a Hatteras 68 live about 5 years ago and started loving them, now I am again for a full open bridge version with hardtop and outriggers and no towers.
    Not that I ever will afford one of these machines, but appreciating beauty is free.

    And, that big window on the side of the hull also doubles as a glass bottom underwater viewing window at times!

    haha Capt J. Probably gives a great view in rougher weather. Of course there is alot of debate all around this forum about the place of big 'picture' windows so low to the sea. Querying the integrity of such 'large' expanses of glass.

    I do like the enclosed bridge, but I am not a big fan of the hull window.

    I saw the side hull window on the 64' at the Ft Lauderdale show and i just couldnt make myself like it.

    It really does break from the traditional SF mold.

    I wonder if it will catch on.


    I guess it is a European influence from Ferretti.

    The underwater viewing comment did make me laugh.
    At least he didnt say it was there to view the hull as it delaminates....

    Well, it could very well in fact double as an escape hatch. When the hull delaminates, the window shoots off of the side of the hull just like the canopy on a fighter jet when you hit the ejection seat button!

    So, she was built in Miami or some new place in North Carlina?
    I'm on the bottom of the #%&$#$ pole and have heard some things (rumors?).

    I spent a bit of time aboard this boat last week at the show. Having previously done a stint as a broker at Bertram, I have been looking for the sportfisher that will return Bertram's reputation to its former glory - hopefully this one will do it.

    Although I haven't been a particular fan of EFBs, I found the Bertram 800 to be aesthetically pleasing. The layout worked well, fit and finish seemed excellent, and decor was tastefully contemporary. This boat was constructed at the Bertram yard in Miami, although the interior was from another state, I forget which one but I think in the Midwest.

    I was looking forward to an extensive YF review so we could read Loren's take on the construction details on lamination schedule, stringers, etc. but the word I got was that this Hull # 1's owner was heading out straight to better fishing grounds than Miami Beach. Maybe Carl can get access to hull # 2 when complete.

    This boat is a Bertram beauty and looks designed to accommodate the serious fisherman.

    Beauty is a very subjective thing, for me, I just can't seem to embrace the "euro" look to her lines.

    Jeeze, the still haven't delivered this boat? Didn't they sell it over a year ago to Finlyason from the Nassau? While the boat was assembled in Miami, the hull and deck molds arrived from Italy where they were built with the parts that eventually became this boat still inside them.

    The hull and deck molds or hull and deck still in the molds?
    What I tried to ask before (maybe poorly), Where was the new 80 made? Sounds like everywhere and assembled in Miami.
