|She is a beautifully refitted Bertram 31. She looks like a new boat when you approach her but for those Bertram fanatics in the know she is an evolved Moppie, an iconic Bertram.
The Bertram 31 is and improved Bertram 30 Moppie. It is a drier and more stable hull than it predecessor, the 30 ft Moppie. Bertram had 30 years of experience and evolution with the Moppie and the 31 hull is the sweet result.
Importantly to note, this boat is the very last Moppie built by Bertram. When Norberto Ferreti bought Bertram in 1998, he came across the mold of the 30' Moppie in the Bertram factory in Miami. He knew the history of the Moppie and he ordered a custom one-off build for his personal use. This is the boat that was built for Norberto Ferreti in 2000. There was one major modification and that is the factory installed twin turbo-diesel 420 HP Yanmar, in white, that Ferretti chose for this boat.
The Bertram 31 is truly an all-round versatile boat designed to please the weekend cruiser, fisherman or diver. The famous beamy Bertram deep V hull will get you there and take you home even in the roughest conditions. These good sea keeping abilities is what Bertram is known for.
This Bertram 31 is powered by twin Yanmar 420 HP diesel shaft drives and a genset to power all of life's gadgets including marine air conditioning to make life comfortable in the tropics. Capable of a max speed of 30knots and economically cruising @ 23 knots @ 120l/Hr allow this beautiful sporty weekender to achieve an easy 140nm range.
Down below she is comfortably appointed with a forward offset double berth, convertible salon dining table, longitudinal galley with an enclosed shower and head (electric ). Full air conditioning down below makes her perfect for the tropics.
On deck she has a great aft cockpit covered by a ¾ bimni with access to refrigeration and storage to port and to starboard a sink and prep station.
This is the open sport fish version so the starboard double helm seat is adjacent to an additional double passenger crew seat. All the electronics are at the help including autopilot, sounder, windlass control and an additional sounder to port so that the fisherman can really keep an eye on bottom definition to put them in the best fishing hot spot.
The Bertram 31 has become a benchmark both in terms of seakeeping ability and rugged fiberglass construction. It has had a reputation from the start as a boat that will take you out and bring you back. The Bertram 31 has aged well, a tribute to its impeccable blood lines and robust construction.
