(SOLD) 1987 Bertram 46 Convertible

1987 Bertram 46 Convertible MK IIIOver $250,000 spent over the last three years to make this Bertram like new! Stored inside each winter this absolutely gorgeous 46' Bertram MK III seeks a buyer who understands and demands perfection. She has been meticously maintained and shows it in every regard. While there are certainly other 46 MK III's for sale, this vessel requires NO additional dollars to bring her to the next level; She was designed for fishing, but used for cruising (doesn't even have rod holders) She moved to Maine two years ago from the Great Lakes and it still shines like new. Please read "full-specs" for the numerous up-grades recently done. "Betty B" is sure to challenge the most discriminating buyer so please call our office today for more information.
