Bertram Yachts said it is expanding its fleet to include a lineup outboard boats. “With the support of Bertram’s parent company, the Gavio Group … Bertram plans to spend in excess of $15 million on new-product development over the next four years to expand our portfolio of products into premium outboard-powered boats starting in the high 20-foot range,” Bertram CEO Mark Paulhus said in a statement.

The company said it will continue to invest in expanding its Tampa, Fla., facility during the next two years. Vice president of sales Tommy Thompson said the introduction of outboard boats will allow Bertram to increase its North American presence by “giving boaters an outboard option that lives up to the Bertram ride and quality they have come to expect.”

Bertram also said it’s in the process of signing an exclusive supplier agreement with Mercury Marine. “Our partnership with Mercury will allow us to achieve the level of boat, engine and systems integration excellence necessary to ensure that the new Bertram models deliver the product performance and reliability that the company has long been known for,” Paulhus said.
