    Sorry, I thought YF referenced the old Bertram Factory, however it was the Lazzara... not as questionable then ;). Cheers

    Looks like they have popped the deck out of the mould recently... Can't find the pic though. Though it look pretty close to the renders on the website. Cheers

    Professional Boatbuilder has a nice feature article on the Bertram Factory and their current vision, it is a good read and insight as to how they are constructed.

    It states that the 35 Bertram sea trialed at a WOT speed of 37 knots and a cruise of 28 knots at 2300 rpm. (max rpm for CAT C7.1 is 2900 rpm). Not bad for a 35 SF. They are building it at a semi-custom rate, not on a pure production line, makes sense for a niche boat. They also highlight the construction of the new 60 and have a new 50' on the drawing boards, good for them!

    I just wish they would remove the "up to 40 knots" from their website.

    They still need to figure out the 61. I believe that was supposed to launch in the fall last year.

    Nice move, I like the position of a 50 Express better than the 45 Hatteras Express or the new 42 Mag Bay Express, good decision from management.

    Must be keeping the tooling suppliers busy!

    I don't know. 45' seems to be the perfect size for an express. The 45' ex is one hell of a boat. I've run many of them. 36 knot cruise, great ride, very versatile cockpit, etc. I fished a 45' Cabo a lot for marlin in Central America and it was easy to get in and out of a lot of spots that bigger sf couldn't due to draft.
