1988 Bertram 37 Sportfisherman Fishing Boat in Palacios, Texas

Stock #012219

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

Hurricane Harvey was unkind to this spectacular BERTRAM. She capsized. She was promptly refloated, and needs a new home. You will need to rewire her, and she'll need re-powering. But, the legendary hull is in terrific shape. The recent bottom paint is great. She sustained only minor apparent damage to the hull or the upper cabin fiberglass.( see pics). The last 5 photos were taken SEPT 22, 2017. The only capsize-physical damage sustained is to the right side of the stern which is shown in the photos.

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

BRING US 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.

HURRICANE HARVEY was unkind to the S. Texas coast line. This BERTRAM was capsized while tied in its slip. She sustained only minor structural damage, and she is now floating.

Engines should be totally reworked or replaced.

New price of $30000 is based on BUC "Restorable" condition.
