The Bertram 38 Special is great design that works well for Florida offshore fisherman and this one has been upgraded throughout to include a set of Cummins 450hp C-series diesels (2007 approx. 1250 hours) and a newer Northern Lights generator in the engine room. The tuna tower & the aluminum bow rail are newer (after the repower). Check out some newly added photos by clicking the "full specs" button.
Seller might be willing to consider a less expensive, quality brand, center-console as a partial trade or would trade up to a 45' - 53' Flybridge Convertible.
The Bertram 38 Special is designed for the serious sportsman. Comfortable accommodations for four include a wide V-berth, a cedar-lined closet, and a head with a stall shower. There's a posh convertible dinette and an L-shaped galley with a microwave. But the real attraction is topside. The bridgedeck provides room for anything from daytime to moonlight entertaining. Options include a cleverly positioned electronics pod (using only a portion of the chart flat) and an L-shaped lounge which houses an insulated icebox as well as more storage, a teak deck sole, and a tower. The cockpit is of tournament quality.
