1983 Bertram 38 Sport Fisherman

(LOCATION: Lighthouse Point FL) This Bertram 38 Convertible is a classic deep-V sport fisherman that has been extremely popular with offshore anglers. Large enough for comfort and small enough for legendary maneuvering, this fisherman provides an affordable cruising alternative.

The spacious flybridge features forward guest seating, center helm station, single Pompanette helm seat, and companion bench with storage aft. A full enclosure with new canvas and Eisenglass provides weather protection. The centerline helm station has a lower console full gauges and controls and a well-equipped electronics array overhead. Package includes: Raytheon R21X Radar, Garmin 75 GPS, Raymarine ST8002 Auto Pilot, Datamarine LXR Depth Finder, Furuno FCV667 Depth Finder, Icom M45 VHF Radio, Standard Hailer, Stewart Gauges, Flow Scans Meters, and Ritchie Compass.  Below is a large, 100 square foot cockpit with fixed awning and Lee outriggers. There's more than enough room to fish, relax, or celebrate a good day of fishing.

The cabin is bright with lots of natural light from large windows. Port side is a settee with drop-leaf table and casual seating. To starboard is a full galley with large windows, Formica counter with ample counter space, stainless steel sink, three-burner range with oven, microwave oven, under counter refrigerator and freezer, an ice maker is located in the forward stateroom.

There are two private staterooms below. The forward stateroom features V-berth with under-berth storage, hanging locker, rope locker, and en suite head and vanity. The port side stateroom has upper and lower berths, under-berth storage, and hanging locker. The starboard head compartment has stand-up shower and vanity.

STARDUST is powered by a pair of 300 horsepower Caterpillar 3208T diesel engines. A Kohler genset provides offshore electrical power and two Cruisair AC units maintain interior comfort. She has retained her classic good looks and will continue to look good and run well for years to come. Call now and schedule a showing of this exceptional Bertram 38 III Convertible.
