|"Cloudy Bay" is a classic 1987 Bertram 31' and without hesitation, one of THE best examples to be offered For Sale. She was number 3 off the production line and features in a 'raft up' photograph in the foyer of International Marine in Melbourne. We are upsizing.
"Cloudy Bay" was totally professionally refitted, regardless of cost, in 2009 over a period of 12 months. Mechanical work was undertaken by Tambo Marine and all shipwrighting by Alan Lancaster & his team. We wanted a totally comfortable boat we were proud of.
