General Details

The 43' Bertram was one of Bertrams very best riding hulls that replaced the 42' Bertram. This 43' Bertram was highly customized in many ways to clearly separate her from a production built boat. She has fresh engines, one is still under full warranty.  Many recent upgrades and priced to be the next one to sell!
