Manufacturer Provided Description

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. She has a cruising range of almost 400 miles and a top speed of 35 miles an hour, which makes for refreshing rides up top or comfortable cruising below. 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.

History/ Mechanics

This boat was purchased in 1996 by her current owner.  She had been used in Montauk so the previous owner had installed an extra 76 gallon fuel tank.    She had about 1750 hours when purchased.  

  • March 2007 both engines were overhauled and the hour meters were replaced so they show true current time.  In addition a new instrument panel was installed at that time.
  • November 2008, 2 new exhaust risers elbows etc. were custom made by Stainless Marine and installed.
  • 2008 a new refrigerator was installed
  • April 2011, Both Transmissions were rebuilt
  • November 2011, The Bonding Wiring was redone and the electrical system was gone through including separate harnesses for each battery
  • Jan 2012 New Starboard Engine Blower, 4 new oil lines and fuel lines were replaced
  • December 2012 the Port Blower was replaced
  • July 2014 both Turbos on the Port Engine were replaced

There are a few items not working, and are not going to be repaired.  The live well is not working, it probably needs a new pump.  The tower controls are disconnected and probably need the cables replaced because the tower has not been used for many years.  The tower steering should be fine, but was not tested. There is a life raft on the bow but it is out of date and is probably not repairable.  The decks are in need of new nonskid.
