Rated the third best sport fishing boats of all time; Perhaps no other boat has earned as much longterm fame as the 31 Bertram. 1st introduced in 1961 in both Flybridge Cruiser (enclosed cabin) and Sport Fisherman (no aft bulkhead, open design) layouts, the 31 became an overnight success and is still popular. Built on the now-famous deep-V hull designed by Ray Hunt, the 31 could go fast in big seas and tracked down-sea like no other boat that anyone had ever seen. A huge cockpit made fishing a pleasure, and it didn’t take long before 31s were scattered across the oceans of the world in both charter and private service. Many of them are still running today, a tribute to their rugged construction.
