1968 Bertram 31 SF Fishing Boat in Bradenton, Florida

Stock #078679

Nothing in power boating has equaled the continued world wide popularity of the Bertram 31.

This is possibly the perfect fishing, dive or charter boat.

One of several Bertram 31 models, more than 1,000 Flybridge Cruisers were built over the years. While they have been out of production for many years, used models are continually in demand regardless of age or condition.

The Bertram 31 is one of the most robustly built boats of any size or material. This likely explains why many people are so willing to spend many thousands of dollars to renovate and re-power older models. Hulls are constructed using fiberglass cloth, woven roving and fiberglass mat in combination with plastic resin. Lay up is more than 1/2" thick on the bottom near the centerline and, even at the sheer, measures in excess of 3/8". Decks are also a solid laminate of fiberglass and resin and measure 1/4" thick or greater in most areas. The deck and hull are joined on a narrow outward flange with mechanical fasteners every 4". There is very little use of core materials. Where core is used it is in combination with substantial fiberglass coverings.

There is an active Bertram Owner's Club with nearly 1,000 members nationwide which publishes a newsletter and helps members to locate hard-to-find parts and repair manuals.

Advertisement is for vessel only. Trailer is not being offered for sale by POP Yachts.
Information On Condition

This boat appears to be in good condition for its age.

The bottom was painted in July, 2018. About 5 years ago, the bottom was completely stripped of all old paint before repainting.

There were no observed fiberglass cracks or crazing in the hull and topsides.

The aft cockpit was redone and there were no observed signs of leaks or water intrusion into the main cabin.



The engines were clean and there were no observed leakages or oil or fuel odors.
Engine access is very easy by lifting the deck mounted hatches.

The interior is bare and ready for the new owner's custom touches. There's a V-Berth forward with head under and a very open and spacious main cabin.

The aft cockpit is the business end of the boat with numerous storage lockers built into the deck. The aft cockpit is long, wide and clear of any obstacles.

Upholstery on the flybridge may need some repair.


Features:

Twin Cummins turbo diesels.

New paint, new deck and new running gear.

Comes with down-riggers, Live Well

60 gallon fresh water tank

Furuno Fishfinder, Garmin GPS, Jensen CD/Stereo

The last 5 pictures are of the outrigger poles and bait well that are not mounted on the boat.
