A very rare find this 31 Bertram Sport Fisherman has remained virtually unscathed over the years. The only major improvement was the replacement of the cockpit weather deck removing the original problematic deck and replacing it with the manufacturer preferred Glasstech Corporation deck. While there are still plenty of 31 Bertram Sport Fisherman to be found most have fell victim to someone’s interruption or new and improved. A gel coated boat the major majority have been painted in recent years as the condition of the gelcoat was beyond repair. Paint hides a multitude of sins which is good for them and perhaps not so good for you. Painting a boat starts a never ending cyclical event of having to repaint the boat boat ever 5-10 years depending on the environment and level of care she receives.

We are all familiar to some extent the valuation of collectible items like coins, stamps and classic cars. The more original, the more “mint” and the more untouched the higher the potential value. Maintaining a collectible in “stock condition” further increases the value of the asset.

This original 1978 31’ Bertram Sport Fisherman is one of these collectible pieces. Original gelcoat that’s shines like new, all original instrumentation, original everything makes her a very difficult and hard to find vessel for the true connoisseur, the true collector. As if stored in suspended animation. She is being sold by her extremely knowledgeable second owner. She has been stored in heated storage during the winter months and a covered boat house during the short summer months. Always in the freshwater of the Great Lakes. 

Arrangements have been made to keep her at the front of the heated storage facility to make her completely accessible during the late Fall and Winter months. If this is exactly what you have been looking for, acting sooner rather than later will insure that you are the next owner.  

The 31 Bertram Sport Fisherman is the quintessential American fishing machine. A genuine classic that gave way to the deep-vee design and to the Bertram company as well. Long considered one of the few smaller boats that could actually compete in blue water tournament events without being out of place. Her performance in head and following seas is nothing less than incredible. Her ease of maintenance quickly earned this design a loyal and dedicated following among serious anglers and charter operations. With over 500 change orders from her beginning in 1961 which we’re mainly cosmetic or hardware related little was done from the original design with respect to handling and sea keeping. The only significant design modification ever done was in widening the hull chines in the early days. Other than that you don’t fix perfect.   

Powered with twin gas Mercruiser Fresh Water Cooled 454’s Producing 330 HP each cruising at 23 mph and 38 mph WOT. She holds 220 gallons of fuel.. It will accommodate two in the forward V beaths and two on the convertible dinette.
