The Toys of Summer: Cast and Cruise

  • Hayley Lerch

With the new Bertram 540, deep-sea fishing excursions and weekend family getaways no longer have to be mutually exclusive. The 54-foot-long, $2.14 million yacht—built by the Miami-based fishing-boat manufacturer Bertram—can comfortably accommodate a group of six while still leaving room for 25 fishing rods, a bait well, a freezer, and a tackle storage area in the mezzanine. A retractable aft window separating the cockpit and the galley makes it easy to pass beverages or bait back and forth between indoors and out, and a wraparound forward window allows ample natural light into the white-oak interior. A sound system incorporated into the bridge, salon, and cockpit provides music to all passengers, whether they are casting lines out at sea or reeling in friends and family at the bar.
