1987 Bertram Convertible 37 Fishing Boat in San Pedro, California

Stock #221805

The 1987 Bertram Sportfisher/Convertible is an angler's dream. If you're looking to take your friends or family, or maybe even do some 6 pack charters, this Motoryacht will fit your needs.

With two staterooms, including a walkaround queen bed in the Master, Twin Bunk Beds in the second, and the pull out sofa in the salon, you can comfortably sleep 6.

The Private head is a fairly good size, with a shower for those evenings after a hot bite.

The Galley includes two refrigerators, sink, stovetop, and microwave to take care of meals.

For entertainment, the seller recently installed the television in the salon, which is complemented by the Bose Surround Sound system and Blu Ray DVD player. On the Upper Helm, another sound system was installed with two subwoofers and amps to drive them.

On the Bridge, the electronics package consists of the High-Quality Furuno NAVnet, Furuno Sounder, Depth and Water Temp, and Simrad Auto Pilot. Everything is synced to work together.

In the cockpit, in addition to the stock bait tank to port, the seller installed the custom-built bait tank you see in the photos. Now you can not only always see the full condition of your bait, but you can take enough with you for days at sea. The seller usually takes about 8 scoops. And, have separate types if you want squid in one tank, anchovies in another, and sardines in the last. Don't limit your bait and you won't limit your chances.

The Twin Caterpillar 3028 Turbo Diesels do a great job getting you out and back and paired with the 473 Gallon fuel capacity, get ready to fish.

The New Windlass was installed at the same time the Custom Bait tank was installed. It comes with 2 remotes.

The FIshing's been hot at the Tanner banks and Bertram's been filling the decks. The seller recently added a Marlin to the catch bag.

Information On Condition

This 1987 Bertram 37 looks to be in good condition and has been well cared for. The seller has only owned it since December 2019.
The Two known issues are the salon Air Conditioner may need a recharge, (The Lower A/C unit works great) and the Saltwater washdown pump needs attention. (The Freshwater Washdown pump works great.)

The Bottom was last painted in January 2019.

The Bertram does have a 5,000 watt inverter installed to complement the generator.

Update Sept. 10, 2020... Seller just installed a Mastervolt Battery Charging System, so both banks are always charged and charging as the Genset runs.

The Props were refurbished and dyno balanced.

Update as of December 2020... A new Helm Enclosure has been installed with new Canvas and Eisenglass.

A recent Mechanical inspection discovered a couple of issues like a leaking heat exchanger and one engine with black smoke, indicating the injectors may need servicing.

Whether you're into catching fish, living aboard or looking to extend your time on the water, this Bertram is definitely worth a look.
