The new Bertram 35 capitalizes on the soul and beauty of the original 31 yet offers a beamier and longer hull design. Michael Peters designed the hull for a projected top speed of 40-plus knots with twin 460-hp diesels. Two engine boxes in the cockpit allow engine access and serve as mezzanine seating for anglers watching their bait. Construction features an infused vinylester, solid fiberglass, hull bottom with Kevlar centerline and strake reinforcements accompanied by a structural grid. Cruisers looking to explore waters where only center consoles can venture will appreciate the 2’6″ draft. The wide beam on the Bertram 35 (35’1″ LOA, 12’5″ beam) adds comfort while trolling at slow speeds and creates a substantial cockpit for anglers to work and cruisers to relax.
