"The Bertram 50 Convertible ranks among the best selling sportfishing boats her size ever produced. Combining handsome lines, quality construction, and excellent performance, the Bertram 50 was a state-of-the-art boat in her day with few serious competitors.

Built on a rugged deep-V hull with cored hullsides and moderate beam, her superb seakeeping and handling qualities are almost legendary. Most Bertram 50 Convertibles were sold with a two queen staterooms. With the two stateroom layout, the galley-down layout with breakfast bar was  popular for those favoring a more spacious salon.

All interiors featured Sub Zero refrigeration, built-in entertainment center, central vacuum system, and overhead rod storage in the salon. Topside, a wraparound helm console can accommodate big-screen video displays.

A transom door with gate, removable in-deck fish box, livewell, and bait prep center with sink were standard in the 108 square-foot cockpit.  Detroit 735hp 8V92 diesels cruise the 50 Bertram Convertilbe at 22 - 24 Kot s (high20's tops). "  per the Powerboat Guide
