Ippa2... Norhtstar 952x GPS, Furuno radar (display located on upper and lower station), Lowrance Sonar, FloScan Fuel Flow gauge, 2 VHF's, Fusion Marin stero.

Tashmoo... Yes It is located in Onset MA... there is also a boatyard next to my marina that will do a short haul if you would like to survey the hull.

I just ran to Oak Bluffs for the weekend with my family. Boat cruised along at 18Kts at 3000 RPM's... Running great...

Nice boat.

It is priced about right.

I sold my 35' gasser for close to this $$ last year and it was not nearly as nice as this one and had one bad engine.

These are phenomenal head sea boats, way drier than my 48' Viking and an incredible ride for their size.

GLWS.

Thanks for the feedback! I came across your old listing the other night. Those 48 Vikings are beautiful boats. I hope you enjoy it.

As for the 35 being a great head sea boat I would agree... I am even more impressed with how it performs in a beam sea! Basically this boat is a great ride. Where I am in buzzards bay is known for $hitty seas daily and this 35 gobbles it all right up!

Solitude... funny you ask... No this wasnt Solitude but I know the owner of that boat very well. He put like 10,000 hours on that 35 gasser and a few sets of engines in it fishing for tuna etc. He has owned a 28, 31, 35, and now a 42 Bertram... He Swears by the 35. Their current boat is a 42 with a tower out of Onset (also named Solitude). I will see them Friday.. What was they boat you were on in Fiddler's cove? I will say hello for you

Here are a few lines from the Power Boat guide that talk about the 35 Bertram... Feel free to use these as talking points with your wife this weekend...

F
ew boats can rival the long production run enjoyed by the Bertram
35 Convertible. For many, 35 feet is the ideal size for an
offshore convertible short of going into serious debt. The Bertram
35’s interior layout is well-suited for family cruising, although she’s
most at home as a fishing boat where her large cockpit, precise
handling, and enviable seakeeping qualities are most appreciated....
...Twin 350hp Crusader gas engines were
standard (19–20 knots cruise/28 knots top) during her production
run.... During the 1980s and well into the
1990s, only a handful of boats in her class approached the Bertram
35 in terms of construction quality and/or owner popularity. Even

today, clean models are nearly always in demand.

Another great weekend on the boat. Went to the Vineyard for the weekend... All of the other boats were complaining about rough rides and choppy seas... my wife and kids fell asleep on the ride ... You cannot beat the Bertram Hull...
