Lewes, DESell a boat like this
1988 50 Bertram 2020 Refit
CAT Warranty until 7/2025, only 400 Hours
Owner of 10 years has completed their summer cruise 7/18/21 and decided to move up to a larger Bertram, making this exceptional vessel immediately available and a best-buy in today's market.
Couple a legendary Bertram B50 battlewagon - - with its overbuilt hull and Deep V - - together with modern boat performance (can cruise 28-31kn) and systems, tasteful customization and overall reliability. This boat has been cruised extensively and was just serviced. She is available in time to squeeze in Summer or Fall trip for your family. Book your ticket, pack your bags and drive her home tomorrow with confidence.
Repowered and refit by some of the amazing craftsman of F&S Yachts with plans to be a "forever boat" for the owner, emphasis was placed upon family safety, system reliability, and low maintenance (not to mention being a head-turner as well). She is as close to "new" as you can find at a fraction of a cost of a 2021 vessel.
***Note to Fishermen - Mezzanine and Cockpit can be easily re-fitted for fishing / tackle storage, as under-sole cockpit generator(s) have been removed / relocated to engine room. Riggers and more rod holders can also easily be added back to the vessel and a backing plate exists for fighting chair or rocket launcher, if desired. There are through-hulls available for easy additions of live-well and seawater washdown pump / watermaker.
