We sold this boat to her current owners in 2003 and she was near perfect then. Since taking ownership they have not only repowered with modern electronic diesels but updated every system to new boat standards...This Boat Needs Nothing.

Duel Racor filters. The lower weight aid in the increased performance and lower fuel burn. The smaller foot print make engine room access a breeze.
Spotless engine room shows great.
Recent generator over haul. The generator has been relocated to the engine room. This not only protects it from rust and corrosion ( a big problem with the duel cockpit mounted original set up) but with the sound shield and engine room sound insulation , Quite is the word.Dockside 240V power with a Glendenning Cable Master
We have seen and sold many "Classic Bertram's" and this is truly "One of a Kind'
All work professionally done. Experienced owners learned what to do when they repowered their previous 42 Bertram with a pair of 680 MAN's.
The only thing lacking in the 50 Bertram was the economy , engine reliability and performance due to the old Two Stroke Detroit's.
Problem solved and as close to perfection as one could get.
