Few boats can rival the long production run enjoyed by the Bertram 35 Convertible. For many, 35 feet is the ideal size for an offshore convertible short of going into serious debt. The Bertram 35’s interior layout is well-suited for family cruising, although she’s most at home as a fishing boat where her large cockpit, precise handling, and enviable sea-keeping qualities are most appreciated.  In 1981 the MK II model came out with an updated flybridge layout. During the 1980s and well into the 1990s, only a handful of boats in her class approached the Bertram 35 in terms of construction quality and/or owner popularity.  Even today, clean models are nearly always in demand.
