The Bertram 46 Convertible is made popular by her precise handling and impressive seakeeping characteristics of her deep-V hull, a proven rough-water performer with a wide beam and low cockpit freeboard. This Bertram 46 features the single sliding door to the saloon and a 2-stateroom, 2-head layout. Her saloon features a bar aft and to port with a U-Line Ice Maker. Just forward is the L-shaped settee with drop-leaf table. Aft and to starboard is the entertainment center with a Samsung TV and Alpine stereo.
