The 1981 Bertram

This boat has been completely redone in 2014

The boat is set up to fish, and all the gear is included. Turnkey operation right here. I was highly impressed with how clean and well maintained it was.

Even if you are looking for a sportfish for your family this boat only needs some minor cosmetic work plus you get all the fishing equipment included.

Owner bought the boat two years ago and has put every spare penny he has into making it better.

The boat is 34 years old and as such still needs love, but the boat is extremely reliable and an absolute battle wagon. It is far wider than any other boat of its time with much more cockpit space than any other production boat of its class.

Feel free to make an offer on the boat.
