|This Bertram was bought in February last year and has since undergone a major refit with $75 000 since invested by the owner. Both 7.4 litre Mercruisers with shaft drive have been rebuilt by an engineer and a new array of electronics including 3 transducers, touch screen Garmin 7410, Fusion sound system, Garmin VHF radio and aerial, 2 TV/ DVD units that are all linked, new batteries and battery charger ensure that maintenance will only be routine for some time to come.
The vessel has just been sandblasted, faired, epoxied, new anodes fitted, antifouled and had propspeed. New fuel lines and filters for the dual fuel tanks and a new rear deck were part of the works. Some of the features include a hot water system, shore power, invertor, separate electric flush toilet, shower, V berth, dining setting that converts to a bed, lounge that converts to a bed, 2 burner stove and oven and eutectic fridge/freezer which ensure that this boat has all the features required for family cruising.
Rupp outriggers, a nine rod custom stainless rocket launcher, fresh and saltwater wash down and a dual helm with one of the the best internal fit outs I have seen on a Bertram 35 ensure fishing is catered for.
Recently replaced full camper covers, electric anchor winch, generator and autopilot complete this versatile package.
Take advantage of a situation that the owner has found himself in and buy a boat that has had the hard and expensive work done. An inspection is recommended for anybody considering a fishing/family/cruising boat that has a fine pedigree and a reputation for sea worthiness so often referred to by other manufacturers, at a price not often seen.
Do not be deterred by the low price, this boat is on the market to sell and the difference between petrol and diesel power prices will pay for a lot of fuel and provide many hours of fun for the fisherman, family, cruiser and those just looking for the relaxing lifestyle previously out of reach.
