The Bertram 61 is the biggest boat that the builder offers, in addition to the Bertram 50 and Bertram 35.

Design-wise, the Bertram 61 pays homage to the Bertram 54 from the 1980s, all the while incorporating modern mechanical, electronic and construction systems. The hull is molded, infused vinylester with a Kevlar keel and strakes. Components such as hatches and doors have FRP liners, and rub rails are made of heavy-duty vinyl with stainless-steel inserts and end caps.

Fuel capacity on the Bertram 61 is 1,720 gallons, giving anglers enough fuel to get out and back to the canyons. The transom deadrise is 18 degrees, which should make for a smoother offshore ride. Power is a pair of 1,925-horsepower Cat C32 Acerts.

A Seakeeper 16 is on the standard equipment list, to keep things comfortable in a chop.

When the fishing is done for the day, there are three en suite staterooms, including a full-beam master amidships with an athwartships berth. Forward of the master is a twin-berth stateroom to starboard, and the bow can be fitted with either a single, larger berth or two smaller berths in a nearly V-style configuration.
