Seventy feet may not be as significant a measure as it once was in yachting, however, it is still big in terms of convertibles. Compromise is not uncommon when sculpting a sportfisher with large proportions-it seems little was necessary in the case of the 700. She remains true to her convertible roots and her balance of fishing and comfort features are in keeping with the current standard. Given her generous allotment of power she has the agility and response of a smaller boat. Fitted with a tower, the ARG system and a respectable electronics package, the 700 Open weighs in at $5,027,053. Add $207,665 for the enclosed bridge. If you share the "bigger is better" mantra and are interested in expanding your fishing or cruising horizons, the 700 Bertram is worth a close look.
