Per an independent reviewer:
Bertram has a well-deserved reputation for building rugged, high quality boats. Bertram has an interesting history, for it was one of the three first production boat companies to start up in 1961 along with Hatteras and the Henry Hinckley Company, all known for producing top quality boats that have survived to this day.
The success of Bertram came about as the result of Dick Bertram's commitment to quality, Ray Hunt's revolutionary deep vee hull design, and the timeliness of Castro's overthrow of the Bastista government which brought a flood of cheap labor to Miami. This was augmented by the fact that the Cuban refugees that got jobs at Bertram usually kept them for a lifetime, meaning that the turnover at Bertram was nearly zilch, meaning that Bertram employees were well trained and knew what they were doing.
For a thirty-three footer, she boasts something you'll rarely ever find with this size boat: a large cockpit, generous cabin spaces, and a large flybridge capable of seating five comfortably with no crowding. Having so much room in all three areas is achieved as a result of having the rather lengthy house set far forward which gives you a short foredeck, but a lot of space on the bridge without taking up cockpit area.
This custom built cabin is extremely well laid out, there's more than enough room for two people overnighting with an adequately sized vee berth cabin forward. The main cabin has enough room to allow two people to move around freely, and contains a good sized galley and convertible dinette which converts into a nice double berth. Altogether, it's not hard to see a couple spending a week or so onboard for a vacation cruise or extended fishing trip. Yet another thing I like about the cabin is that, though the windows are not large, they extend completely around the perimeter of the cabin, mostly at eye level, making for a very bright and airy interior with fantastic visibility. I don't know about you, but I like to see what's going on outside when I'm not at the helm.
In 2005 over $20,000 was spent refurbishing this Bertram with a custom teak interior, new Alum 365 gallon fuel tank, and new Air conditioning.
Recent upgrades and repairs include New Battery charger, cushions, spent $5000 to rebuild the generator, Bottom painted 21/2 years ago, maintained by divers since.
10/2018 Recent A/C failure will require $4000 to repair. Boat also needs to be Sprayed for termites. At this point it is not serious but it needs to be taken care of.
