"Cour De La Mer"

2005 Bertram 450 Convertible



Cour De La Mer is rigged out for serious offshore fishing.   

Bertram's are well known for their wave piercing hulls, comfortable accommodations and dry ride characteristics.  The 450 was introduced as an updated design of the successful Bertram 43. The 43 hull form was lengthened and engine horsepower increased, but the entry, shallow keel, and aft deadrise were maintained.

Cour De La Mer incorporates loads of innovative features that make sportfishing as easy and comfortable as possible.  She's boasts a large salon that is tastefully finished with cherry cabinetry and trim, an over-sized galley, two large staterooms and two heads.

The Bertram 450 Convertible is a sportfisherman that combines a deep-V hull with the needs of tournament anglers. The interior of the 450 Convertible can be compared to much larger boats. It was developed to satisfy the sportfisherman, yet deliver the comfort of a cruising boat. The salon - galley - dinette layout is spacious and practical. There is room to relax or entertain in comfort with a full complement of standard features and amenities. The second cabin is unique, with side by side twin berths instead of the more common over and under berths. Unusual in a boat of this size is the elevated cocktail area forward of the dinette, and the possibility of a washer & dryer stack in the companionway. On the practical side, much attention was paid to the organization and layout of the engine room. The fuel tank was put amidships to minimize the effect of fuel load on trim. It also acts as an effective insulator of noise and engine room heat for the forward cabin area. Careful layout of major components makes maintenance very easy. Even in the unlikely necessity of removing an engine or generator, the 450 has been designed so that this may be done without major surgery to the boat.
