The Bertram 46 Motor Yacht is ideal for cruising, partying, diving and vacationing with families, groups of couples, charters or corporate owners. Robust fiberglass construction makes her one of the most dependable craft of its size anywhere on the water. A built-in lounge on the foredeck is a fun place to sip something cool while streaking across the sea. The flybridge is extremely functional, and so is the aft deck - which usually proves to be the most popular area. The forward cabin is spacious and private, with its own head and shower and six feet, five inches of headroom. The master stateroom is big enough for a walk-around center-line queen-sized bed and a full head complete with a combination shower and bathtub. There's a richly upholstered sofa and more than enough room to entertain in the salon. The galley is a seagoing classic, complete with a refrigerator and freezer, a range and a clever dish locker. The spacious dinette converts to a private stateroom. So, while this yacht can sleep eight comfortably, it can also feed that many in waterborne elegance.
