1988 Bertram 37 Sportfisherman Fishing Boat in Palacios, Texas

Stock #012219

Hurricane Harvey was unkind to this spectacular BERTRAM. She partially capsized. She was promptly re-floated, and needs a new home. You will need to rewire her, and she may need re-powering. In the pics, you will see where she received damage at the stern above the water line. But, the legendary hull is in terrific shape. The recent bottom paint is great. She sustained only minor apparent damage to certain areas above the waterline and the upper cabin fiberglass.( see pics). The photos were taken SEPT 22, and OCT 22, 2017.

A 1988 BERTRAM 37 SPORTFISHERMAN in operating condition can bring up to $100000.

BRING the seller A FAIR OFFER!!

Current owner bought this boat a few years ago to use with his family and discovered that most of his family got seasick and did not get the enjoyment out of it that he had hoped.

He has spent the last couple of years using it occasionally and addressing many of the issues that he inherited from the previous owner.

There are still a few works in progress on the boat, but he has done a lot of the work already and it wouldn't take much to get her the rest of the way back to her full glory.

Engines should be totally reworked or replaced.

New price is less than BUC "Restorable" condition.
