Classic convertible styling and the only stairway bridge access in her class characterize the 630 Convertible, Bertram’s replacement for the hugely popular Bertram 60 Convertible built from 1990 through 2005. To boost her top-end speed, Bertram engineers gave the 630 less transom deadrise than her deep-V predecessor, in addition to adding prop pockets to level the engines.
The bottom is solid fiberglass, and a long keel provides directional stability. Inside, the high-gloss cherry interior of the Bertram 630 rivals a small motor yacht for comfort and luxury.
A vast U-shaped ultra-leather lounge to port dominates the saloon, with storage cabinets opposite and a galley and dinette forward.
There are three staterooms and three heads below, including an amidships master with a walkaround queen bed, and an equally spacious VIP stateroom with a queen berth and side-by-side singles complete the picture.
A mezzanine deck overlooks the cockpit with its transom fish box and live bait tank, bait freezer, and transom door with a lift-up gate.
Additional features include a stand-up engine room, bow thruster, foredeck davit crane, and a 4.4MT Boston Whaler Super 130 tender with a 40HP Mercury outboard.
“Island Kai’s” dual 1550HP Caterpillar C30 shaft drive diesels see her scoot through the water at an impressive 27 to 29 knots, and when required, will reach a credible 34 – 35 knots. The ARG gyro stabilizer, which is a recent addition, gives a great ride with stability to boot.
Why not call GLI and ask Phil, Col, or Perry to organize an inspection of this classic Bertram 630?
