Convertible Boats 1997 Bertram 36 Convertible

Off Market since Oct 30th 2018

To see full description of this boat from the seller click on the Seller Description tab above.

This Bertram 36 Convertible is a great opportunity on a proven pocket-sportfisherman built back in the good old days of Bertram Yachts. Bertram built the 36 as a 3/4 scale 54! Bertram managed to pack just about every big-boat feature into 36 feet and she can handle about anything a 54 can accomplish offshore. She sports a generous cockpit with Release fighting chair, outriggers, full electronics, an interior with full galley and sleeping for six, and CAT power. She was re-engined under warranty recall by Holt Caterpillar (3126 upgrades) with just over 1150 original hours, she is enjoyed regularly and is ready to go fishing this weekend!
