Beautiful Bertram restore. Not exactly a bargain, though. Hope it's no one on here, because I'm afraid the owner is in for a long wait.

I originally read $19,850 and thought WTF are you guys talking about! ~$200k for that boat is unrealistic.

I find it interesting that many think 250k or more for a center console is perfectly acceptable but a fully restored legend with new everything for $200k is stupid. It burns less fuel, power has at least twice the life, comfortable over nighter, better sea boat and safer (diesel). But it's stupid. Lol

It is still a 40 year old boat with wood in its hull.
My guess is that owner has put $200 k in it and hardly uses it. Moving to next project.

Sure is sweet, 200k is steep but it looks to be done right. I wonder if this was a bottom up project- removing most of the wood or just a well cared for boat that has been updated recently.

I was really damn excited there for a min and getting ready to book my plane ticket to go get it. And then I realized I actually looked at it wrong and I missed the EXTRA 0 on the end!

How do you figure it is safer and better in rough seas? I will run circles around that thing in my CC any day any time!

All he did was add up his receipts from where I am standing... The problem is at any price, you still are sitting on engine covers and the front windows leak. Nice boat, looks like a first class job on the repower and paint.
