This is a beautiful and well maintained example of this timeless design. Here is what PowerBoat Guide says about the Bertram 54:
"Proven tournament winner is widely regarded as one of the best sportfishing yachts of her era. Near perfect blend of design, engineering, and construction, few production (or Custom) boats her size compare when it comes to heavy-weather handling. Huge cockpit (140 sq ft) offers exceptional fishability"
She is powered by twin Detroit 12V92s (1100hp each), the port engine was majored about 500 hours ago. She also has twin 23Kw gensets to easily power all systems. The boat was recently (Feb. 18) surveyed.
This Bertram has the three stateroom/three head layout, with the salon and galley up.
New listing, additional photos and information will follow.
