As you walk up on this Classic Bertram 38 Sport-fish Cruiser you immediately note it is an early model Bertram based on the Hunt design hull. Then you will notice the amazing condition of the vessel. That is due to the complete refit of every component from top to bottom and stem to stern has been either replaced or refurbished. The current owner took the boat down to bare hull fiberglass and replaced everything from mechanical and wiring, fittings, molding, engines, generators, Air Conditioners, and every other single component was refit in 2013 to the tune of over $700K.

The project was completed in 2014 and was done by Sea Masters Marine in Canada in an enclosed climate-controlled workspace. This is a vintage yacht redone to modern standards and technology. The interior is crisp and new to reflect the use and taste of the modern era.

When you enter the yacht from the cockpit you will first notice the new custom-made entry door. Also, you will also note the modern stairs to the flybridge. This is your first hint that this is a unique custom boat. When you enter the saloon, you think you're on a much newer model European designed yacht. The interior combination of light and dark wood finishes gives this a light and modern feel. With the flat screen TV and custom sofa to the updated new galley and refrigeration systems to include a wine cooler. This will allow you to stay onboard for weeks and have all creature comforts. There is an upper and lower bunk state room on the port side and across the hall in a very large head with sink and vanity and very ample stand up with a seat enclosed shower. The raised trunk forward cabin allows great head room. You have an island queen berth forward for separation of guest and owners. This is a perfect boat for a couple or a family.

The wide walkaround decks and the very large beam gives safe access to the foredeck. On the foredeck you find new ground tackle and all new stainless railings. The custom flag blue Awl-Grip and cloud flag white paint scheme give this boat a distinct and classy look and feel.
