1970 Bertram 31 SPORT FISHERMAN

Deerfield Beach, Florida

$79,900

The 31 Bertram Sport Fisherman is the quintessential American fishing machine. A genuine classic that gave way to the deep-vee design and to the Bertram company as well. Long considered one of the few smaller boats that could actually compete in blue water tournament events without being out of place. Her performance in head and following seas is nothing less than incredible. Her ease of maintenance quickly earned this design a loyal and dedicated following among serious anglers and charter operations. With over 500 change orders from her beginning in 1961 which we’re mainly cosmetic or hardware related little was done from the original design with respect to handling and sea keeping. The only significant design modification ever done was in widening the hull chines in the early days. Other than that you don’t fix perfect.

Accommodations

Designed as a Day Boat the 31 Bertram Sport Fisherman is built for fun and comfort at sea. She does offer a vee-berth forward and space for a plumbed marine head. The owner elected to remove the head when he first purchased the boat 12 years ago as she has been used for casual cruising primarily along the Intracoastal Waterway since arriving from her original home in Michigan. Fitted with lower helm as well as her fly bridge helm she is in incredible condition with her original Gelcoat in remarkable condition. Wardrobe locker is forward and the original cabin windows are next to perfect. A true candidate for the Antique Road Show.
