The interest in the new 35 is incredible. We want to make sure our customers are well served.”

The new dealers will complement Bertram’s southern sales offices in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and headquarters in Tampa, Fla. These dealers will anchor Bertram’s international dealer network and ensure that customers are properly serviced throughout the United States.

“The timing of these appointments is perfect as we prepare for the Miami Boat show. Our new Bertram 35 is in production at our new Yard in Tampa. Development is underway on more Bertram models,” said Peter Truslow, CEO of Bertram Yachts. “I know the staffs of each of these operations; they are great additions to the Bertram family. They will help us grow the company in the years ahead.”
