1979 46' Bertram Sports Fisherman. This is a preliminary listing of a boat that we are refurbishing. This boat has never been fished and has never had out riggers. We at GT Custom Boats refurbish boats we buy, refurbish customers boats and also build new custom and semi custom boats. This 46 Bertram was re-powered in 1999 with Mack E-7 marine diesels that produce 720 HP at 2400 RPM. They have less then 1000 hours since new. The starboard motor had a water intrusion issue so it has been torn down and kits and bearings installed so she has 0 hours SMOH. Both turbos where pulled and rebuilt. Both motors received new Marine Exhaust Inc. 90 deg. mixing elbows and surge tubes. Exhaust manifolds, heat exchangers where pulled, serviced and reinstalled. The motors will be 100% serviced. The Generator is is a 2000 model unit and was pulled, serviced, painted and reinstalled. She is getting all new batteries. Engine room cleaned and painted. She has dripless seals. All AC units have been serviced. All pumps replaced throughout the boat.
The hull is being painted with Alexseal and at this point the color can be chosen by the buyer. The rest of the gelcoat is in great shape and is being sanded, buffed and waxed. The Bridge helm is being moved to the center-line and a custom electronics panel built to port. All lights inside and out are going to be LED. The bottom is getting a barrier coat job and 2 coats of water based multi season paint.
The interior is getting completely redone from headliner to flooring. New teak and holly floors in the galley and master head, new Atlantis heads, LED lighting, wall papers, headliner, hull liner, meganite counter tops in the galley and master head, new sinks, new faucets, all new teak (or cherry up to buyer at this point) cabinetry and walls in the salon and galley. New carpet in the salon and staterooms. They galley is down but can be moved to salon or 1 step down. The whole boat is being gone thru and everything needing replacing will be done. She is also getting a new hard top and pipe work.
She cruises easily at 25 knots at 1900 RPM and does 30-32 WOT. The engine room has a lot more room with the newer 4 stroke power and they weigh 2400 lbs less then the Detroits that came out.
This is a great opportunity to to get a boat done your way at a fair price and a whole lot less then a new one. Give us a call today.
THIS IS A WORK IN PROCESS AND THE PRICE IS FOR THE BOAT AS FINISHED AS DESCRIBED.
