Bertram Yacht names engineering, product development chief

Posted on

Bertram Yacht has appointed Robert Ullberg, a former project engineer at Tom Fexas Yacht Design who founded Ullberg Yacht Design, as vice president of engineering and product development.

Beginning his career with Fexas, Ullberg quickly became the project manager for many of the firm’s sportfishing designs. In 1996 he left Fexas to establish Ullberg Yacht Design, an engineering-based design firm that focused primarily on the design and development of custom sportfishing boats.

Ullberg’s portfolio includes designs for builders such as Willis Marine, Whiticar Boatworks, Merritt Boat and Engine Works, Garlington-Landeweer Marine, Mike Rybovich, Bayliss Boatworks and Lyman-Morse Boatbuilders.

During the past 16 years Ullberg has designed and engineered custom sportfishing boats in the 40- to 90-foot range.

In his new role he will lead the engineering and product development organization for Bertram at its new facility in Merritt Island, Fla. He will initially concentrate on the 2013 Bertrams that will be built at Merritt Island, followed by the development of a series of new Bertram sportfishing models.

Ullberg will report directly to Bertram’s president, Alton Herndon.

“We are extremely excited to have Robert on board as part of our organization,” Herndon said in a statement. “We are confident that the design and engineering talent that Robert brings, combined with his experience in the custom yacht industry, will reinforce Bertram’s position as a premier manufacturer of sportfishing boats.”

    Congratulations Robby. I remember when you graduated and I put you in touch with Fexas. You have come a long way young man. Give your dad my best. Bertram finally has someone that can assist them with designing the right kind of boat and insue that the engineering standards are what they should be.

    Best regards,

    Larry Smith
