"1985 Bertram 42 with thousands in renovations, Twin Detroit Turbo Diesels."

Perhaps lesser known than its 46' bigger sister, the Bertram 42 is a very ruggedly built and good-performing vessel, as attested by Dave Pascoe in his review:

1985 Bertram 42 Fishing Boat in New Rochelle, New York

Stock #315204

Perhaps lesser known than its 46' bigger sister, the Bertram 42 is a very ruggedly built and good-performing vessel, as attested by Dave Pascoe in his review:

"What makes the 42 an overall better performer is the fact that the hull vee is less than the 46, plus the fact that she'll hold the same size engines. That means that she isn't hobbled by underpowered engines and they are comparatively much faster boats, a feature which nearly everyone likes."

Being able to reach 30 miles per hour and cruise efficiently at 21 while burning only a gallon of fuel per mile is the kind of performance Dave is referring to.

With a solid fiberglass hull weighing 20 tons, this boat is also likely to fare much better in dangerous conditions or major storms. Tales abound of these boats being swept inland in hurricanes and taking out much of what may be in their paths, yet subsequently being restored to service. If you are somebody who goes far out and away from safe harbors this is the boat for you.

Thanks to the 14' beam the cockpit has plenty of room for work, and the fully enclosed bridge has bench and pedestal seating for six or more, terrific visibility and all the needed controls and electronics for the captain.

Inside the salon has large windows and is airy and bright, the down galley is well equipped with a full-sized fridge and a 3-burner stove and oven.

The midships berth has a full-sized bed, the forward cabin is a V-berth, and the head between the two has a stand-alone shower stall.

As to the machinery, twin Detroit Diesel two-stroke, twin-turbo V6 engines deliver up to 335 horsepower to the props via Allison gears, and the Northern Lights Lugger generator delivers up to 8,000 watts of A/C power to handle all domestic systems while away from shore power... and all is in good running condition according to the owner.

Speaking of the owner, he has been renovating this boat over the past few years, he has less available time now to complete the project, let alone use it, so he now, reluctantly, will consider others willing to take over the project, all the heavy lifting has already been completed.

Information On Condition

The photos tell the story, the boat has been undergoing interior and ships systems renovations and upgrades.

Structurally sound, all the machinery is in good condition and runs well.

Updated A/C, stove, and water heater. Updated flooring and liners where seen. The forward cabin is essentially completed.

Renovations as described in the "Condition" section, turbos on both engines rebuilt, fuel lines and fittings, some engine instrumentation as well as other plumbing and wiring.
