She is a very nice boat. I see it out in the north river all the time. It is unbelievably clean and has great lines. You have to see the boat in person to really enjoy it.I keep my boat in scituate. Just a funnie side note that is my buddies 26' shamrock with the tower on it in the first picture. I own a 22 shamrock stalker "CRUZAN", hopefully the new owner will keep the boat around the area so we can still enjoy her.

He is looking for a trailerable quality center console or walkaround. May also consider another classic project.

Default Betram 25 MKII - SOLD!

Boat has been sold! Passed the survey and seatrial with flying colors. Surveyor said she is the finest 25' Bertram he has seen ever.

She will be spending her life with another meticulous New England owner who has promised to keep her in original condition.

JM, good luck with her.

I am the person that purchased this boat in late 2009. Kept her out of the water for 2010 season and did several things, as follows:

1. Rechromed most of hardware.
2. Put in new cockpit liners.
3. New cushions.
4. New w/s wiper motors.
5. Installed new port seat bracket - found original one in Texas.
6. Countless hours removing old marks, compounding, waxing, etc.
7. Removed stereo system.
8. Removed old wiring, replaced many screws with stainless.
9. Replaced flagstaff and flag, also got Bertram pennant.
10. Installed new antennae.
11. Refinished teak swim platform.
12. Painted anchor.
13. Removed old name and renamed her "Retriever".
14. Installed Soundown insulation in engine box.
15. Replaced switch panel.

In summer of 2011 used her extensively, including trips to Block Island, Cuttyhunk, and throughout Narragansett Bay.

I will try to post some pictures here.

I remember other photos of this boat from the Bert 25 site.
I have the other Bert 25 named Retriever - a 69 convertible. It was on Buzzards Bay until I bought it last summer and motored it over to Sag Harbor on Long Island.
Trying to do a step by step restoration - starting with some work on the engines, sterndrives, wiring and seats. More cosmetics will have to wait until next winter if its ever going to get in the water this year.
Wondering if you are actually getting the fuel mileage claimed earlier in the thread - "burns 50% less fuel with the new 3.0L 4 cylinders Mercruisers versus the original 1970's vintage 165 6 cylinder Mercruisers." That would mean a cruise mpg in the 2.5 - 3 range.
Mine is repowered with the 4 cyl 165 engines. Was getting about 1.5 mpg at cruise last summer, but this is not representative as we found that one cylinder was only firing intermitently due to a bad plug wire and the prop pitch was way off at 17. The previous owner said he only got 1 mpg. Glad he was wrong as we would never have made it home when we picked it up for the 100 mile trip with 75 gallons in the tank. Made it with about 10 gallons to spare. Since the good engine ( firing on all 4 cyl ) would run to 5400 rpm and we could feel prop slim under acceleration trying a set of 14.5 x 21s this year.
Really like the rechromed pieces. How did the Soundown engine compartment insulation work out? Its also on my "to do" list.
Maybe we can meet sometime as intend to take trips back into the RI area this summer.
