As you'd expect in a Bertram fishing machine, the cockpit contains a complete bait-and-tackle station, a removable in-floor fish box with a macerator, a live baitwell and under-coaming lighting. She also boasts easy access to trim and steering pumps as well as other lazarette plumbing and through-hulls, a large transom door with a lift gate, and a centerline scupper system that drains exceptionally fast. Both freshwater and saltwater washdowns come as standard fare, along with gaskets on all hatches, stainless-steel gas shocks on each hatch and my favorite, standard recessed transom steps for reboarding your boat.
The larger cockpit overhang provides excellent shade for those passengers lounging on the cockpit modules, while at the same time adding considerable space to the flybridge behind the helm and companion seats. The bridge offers settee seating for seven adults forward and to starboard of the helm console.
