A personal friend of Dick Bertram, this is only the second owner of one of the last 42 Bertrams ever built. She has been very well maintained over the years with a number of upgrades and is equipped for comfortable cruising for extended periods of time. The boat was last hauled in May 2016 for bottom paint, maintenance, and full wax job.
For all its tranquil lines and sensuous styling, the Bertram 42 Convertible is one hardworking, practical boat. It handles tough weather like a seasoned pro. Bertram's high-tech engineering and tough construction give this 42-footer all the strength and durability one could ask for without slowing her down. Beautiful lush fabrics and teak veneer accent luxury features, which include a giant salon with a convertible lounge. The galley offers a myriad of space and can be equipped to create anything from simple sandwiches to gourmet meals. A full-size refrigerator and a range with an oven are only a few standard necessities. What passengers don't notice right away is all the additional space. There is a pantry that's more than handy, an above-counter sliding locker for additional storage, even a hidden storage opening through a countertop hatch. Continuing below is a master stateroom that's high, wide and handsome, with a large bed and a private head with a stall shower. The forward cabin, too, makes imaginative use of space, with two extra-large berths and an adjoining head with a shower.
