We’ve been working on the hard top construction and installation for Bertram 26 over the last few weeks. Boat tops are a great feature to add by extending your time on the water with added protection from the harsh sun. Ideal when fishing with the kids! We were given a mock-up of the end result to assist in the design and construction of the hard top. We also installed a new lounge component, new windows and an icebox. Bertram 26 is now back on the water ready for it’s next adventure.
We then added divine cell foam for strength and durability in the hard top during construction.
The team made new windows as part of the re-fit to install the hard top.
We pre-fitted the aluminium bar work and hardtop before powder coating.
New seating, hardtop and icebox all painted and ready for fitting!
New hardtop and bar work ready for installation.
Taping up, ready for non skid paint!
New lounge component moulded, layered up and released from mould ready for painting.
Hardtop and lounge painted inside the tent, ready for installation.

BACK IN THE WATER
Job done! From the first mock-up to the final product, Bertram 26 is now completed and fresh out of the shed at the Fremantle Sailing Club. Great to see this one back on the water.
