The Bertram 28 is designed with 23 degrees of deadrise at the transom and can handle seas that would keep other boats in port. The 28 uses its 11-foot beam for added stability at rest, overcoming the tender tendencies of deep-V hulls. Construction is typical of Bertram: The 28 is built with solid fiberglass and lots of it. Bertram was one of the pioneers in fiberglass construction and by the time the Bertram 28 was designed, the company was well versed in the idiosyncrasies of the material.
Laminate surfaces in the cabin, and even on the aft bulkhead, are designed for easy cleanup and low maintenance. At the heart of the Bertram 28's battlewagon design is an almost 9-foot-long cockpit with plenty of room to handle lines, and even to install a fighting chair. With 85 square feet of fishing space the 28 has more room than almost any other boat in its class.. Engine access is good, with large hatches above each engine, and a smaller hatch on the centerline for quick fluid checks. Above the engine hatch, you'll find steps to the flybridge.
This Bertram is and has remained to be a classic fishing legend. The teak wood needs some work in refinishing and oil to bring back the rich golden brown appearance. The bimini top canvass was like new conditions and the zippers moved with little effort. There was no noticeable dings in the gel coat. For a boat of this age it is in good condition..
