Broker's Comments

It is as if we had rolled the calendar back to 1998 and went to visit the Bertram Dealer.

Very rare to find a non-fished-Non Molested Bertram of any size this vintage - BUT  HERE IT IS.

Pick your boating lifestyle- Ready to Cruise as is but built by Bertram to Fish.

Add a set of riggers and a rocket launcher/chair and your off and running. Bertram has supplied a plate in the deck to mount your chair or post.

NEW ENGLAND BOAT used summer season only. 

NEVER FISHED- NEVER SOUNTH since it left Bertram's Miami Factory.

Call Capt. Ed to discuss this boat- He who hesitates is sometimes lost- Don't get lost.
