1963 - The Bertram 25 and Bertram 38 are introduced; a little brother and a big brother to the original 31.The Bertram 25 and Bertram 38 are introduced; a little brother and a big brother to the original 31. The first Bertram 38s were produced in 1963, with thirteen Fly-Bridge Cruisers made that year and this is one of them. The Bertram 38s were designed as sport fishing boats, solidly built to perform well in rough seas and return home safely

The original 38s had a 14' 5" beam, 3' 6" draft and 26,000-pound displacement. They held 350 gallons of fuel and 100 gallons of water.

Bertram outfitted its boats with high-quality, sturdy fittings such as double-clamped hoses and fire-retardant, custom-molded fuel tanks. Its Cook Chemical gel coating was top-notch.

This is a used 1963 Bertram that is still solid in the water but needs some work on the exterior surfaces and care and personal attention on the interior. 38-foot, Deep-V design that firmly established Bertram's reputation for fast, dependable, seaworthy sportfishing boats.
