General Details

This Bertram 31 Express is a true classic that transcends the test of time. Her current owner is a very knowledgeable Bertram loyalist who is also a highly respected accredited marine surveyor who has lovingly maintained and cared for her for the past 35 years.

She was repowered in 1997 with new MerCruiser 454 7.4L Bluewater fresh water cooled engines that only have a total of 250 hours on them.

Her sharp entry, forward flare, flat sheer, low freeboard, fast deep-V running surfaces combined with its pronounced transom deadrise enables fast, comfortable and efficient ride in most any sea conditions. Her ride continues to be legendary in every respect.

There have been numerous updates and upgrades made to her throughout the years. Please review the boat specs for additional details regarding this classic.

Please call today with any questions or to schedule a showing.


Sleeps two in forward V-berth that includes underneath storage, hanging lockers and access to forward anchor locker. Continuing aft and on the port side there is a storage locker followed by a settee and salon table that can convert to a double berth. Opposite to starboard is the galley along with an enclosed head that includes a toilet and shower compartment.
