42' Bertram 1979


(LOCATION: Palm Beach FL) The Bertram 42 Convertible is a legendary fishing machine. One of the most popular convertibles ever designed she dominated the market for over a decade. This is a serious fisherman with flybridge, well equipped cockpit, and comfortable interior.

The flybridge features a T-top with overhead electronics box, rocket launchers, spreader lights, and outriggers. The center line helm station has captain's chairs and upgraded electronics with Garmin GPS chart plotter, Sitex fish finder, and Robertson AP11 autopilot, and  two VHF radios. There is guest seating forward and companion seating aft. A ladder takes you below to the large cockpit.

The spacious cockpit gives you more than enough work space, and includes prep station, tackle center, transom livewell, in-deck lazarette, Manitoc ice machine, transom door, and swim platform. Wide side decks lead forward to the foredeck with stainless steel bow rail, bow pulpit, anchor, and electric windlass.

The salon is large, open, and comfortable. Port side we have twin barrel chairs with hi-lo table. Starboard we have a full sofa. Forward is the entertainment center with television, VCR, and stereo. There's plenty of room in the salon to relax after a day of fishing, discuss the ones that got away, and enjoy a cold beverage. The galley is starboard and down with Princess range with oven, microwave oven, stand-up refrigerator, solid surface counter top, and stainless steel sink.

For overnight and extended fishing trips there are two staterooms. Forward is a guest stateroom with v-berth with under-berth storage. The dual entry head compartment has head, mirrored vanity, and shower. A master stateroom is port side with double berth. Comfortable accommodations make the fishing all the more enjoyable. Three zone reverse cycle HVAC maintains interior comfort and a Northern Lights 8-kW generator provides offshore electrical power.

Performance is provided by twin Cummins diesel engines generating 450 horsepower each with a cruising speed of 20 knots and a top speed around 25 knots.
