This is a desk-top model of, arguably, the most famous modern boat design ever built.  The 31 Bertram has achieved a near cult status, infecting boaters around the world. The first boat design to use a Deep-V hull, designed by Ray Hunt and built by Richard Bertram, the 31 was in production for 25 years.  The prototype, "Moppie," won the 1960 Miami-Nassau power boat race.  Many are still on the water and in use throughout the world.

"The 31 has become a benchmark both in terms of sea keeping ability and rugged fiberglass construction. It has had a reputation from the start as a boat that will take you out and bring you back." (Soundings, May 1994).

"They went to rogues and royalty, grizzled marlin captains and fair-weather sailors. Many of them are still tearing across the whitecaps..." for customs and border patrol work, search and rescue missions, and, of course, to ferry anglers to offshore fishing grounds. The Bertram 31 launched Bertram Yacht, Inc. when it was introduced at the 1961 New York National Boat Show, essentially as a day boat for Florida sport fishermen. More than three decades later, it is a collectible classic, sought-after, even coveted. According to Soundings, aficionados refer to it as "Bertram Art." The Bertram 31 has aged well, a tribute to its impeccable blood lines and robust construction."

Our desk-top model of the Bertram 31 captures all the details of hull design, flybridge, a fighting chair and deck hardware.    

Model dimensions are:  16" LOA x 7" H.  Protective acrylic case w/stand and nameplate included.  Imported.

About our Model Maker:

Our vendor employs highly skilled craftsmen who work only with the finest materials. Hundreds of hours go into making each model, from the original lofting of plans to the finishing touches. Hull construction is either hand laid-up resin or plank on bulkhead with a selection of precious wood. Deck details are reproduced with custom-made brass and chromed brass castings. Hand sanded hulls are finished with marine varnishes and polyurethane paint.

Their facility includes a department for custom models, 2 painting workshops, a professional wood workshop, a laser cutting department, a brass and resin casting section and also a chroming department. The company has its own engineering department working on the design of the custom models or the development of the new prototype for construction.
