“The 630 was conceived by Norberto Ferretti, the driving force behind the Ferretti Group as well as its chairman and president, who acquired Bertram in 1998. His directive to the Bertram design team was to take the 60, a seasoned bluewater battlewagon, and build a larger, faster tournament boat, a boat that, together with the other Bertram convertibles, would create an impressive sportfishing lineup and make the builder even more of a force to be reckoned with on the tourney circuit.
Ferretti wanted outstanding performance, horizon-chasing range, and top-drawer accommodations, but first he had his team look at why the 60 was such an excellent sea boat. “We designed this boat to possess exceptional seakeeping capabilities, as supplied by [the 60’s] long, constant-deadrise running surface, sharp entry, and deep forefoot,” said Mullian. He added that her generous volume forward helps make the 63 handle well in all sea conditions: head, following, and quartering. “By using all that buoyancy forward, the bow pops up and keeps the boat from falling off to either side.
Ferretti also wanted speed, and as reducing drag is one of the most important factors in getting something to go faster, the designers gave the 630’s running bottom a 14.5-degree deadrise aft as compared to the 17.5 degrees found on the 60. In addition she has a pair of shallow, seven-foot-long prop pockets that lower draft and flatten out the shaft angle, reducing appendage drag. She also features the same sharp, deep-V entry; big, wide chines; and keel as the 60..”
