This is a 1979 42 Bertram with the lower helm station. It was repowered in 2001 with 450hp Cummins and a Lugger Generator. It has around 1000 hours now and just had the 1000 hour service done (which was a big one). I'm posting this for my Father so some specific information might be missing. I can get answers to questions though. My father has owned it around five years and in that time has done a ton of work to it. He keeps the boat mechanically immaculate. The boat was completely Awlgripped last year and the bottom was stripped and barrier coated. All unnecessary through hulls and old transducers were removed and glassed over. The boat cruises 25-26 knots and does 29.5 while turning up just over spec.



The boat has been used as a commuter between Nantucket and Cape Cod so the lower station was used exclusively. The bridge was simplified by removing the hard top and adding the radar arch. The helm and seats have been kept covered to protect them. It has a Northstar 952 GPS, Furuno Navnet with radar, GPS and FF, Furuno depth,speed, temp machine, and VHF.

The interior upholstery is in fine shape but is original decor. The interior could use some updating to keep up with the rest of the boat(It's all there really is left to update).



Was $129,900 NOW ONLY !!!!!$99,900!!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! $89,900 $79,900



This boat is in the water and made the trip from Nantucket today! It's turn key and in the water for delivery.

Thanks for the compliments. The boat was purchased because of it's ability to handle rough water. This boat goes when the ferries will not. Being able to just turn on the windshield wipers and go is quite a luxury. You never have to worry in this boat, it's just a matter of matching speed to conditions.

OOPs, That's not good for business. This bottom looks better. The ad is based on the true story of a 42 in Cabo that hit a rogue wave.

Jay keep the boat in the family!! We have to do at least one Canyon trip on her this coming season. Guys I saw this boat yesterday down at the docks and the pictures don't do it justice. It is one sweet boat! Also knowing the family I can tell you that the boat is extremely well taken care of.

Thanks Guys. Jon, I'll take the Contender in trade and then we'll definately go. I'll bring the bait, beer and roast beef Jon, The Bertram is easy on the back too.

Grady, My Father has owned the boat since 2003 and has used it year round. he has never run the boat from the bridge! Once you get used to the luxury of the cabin it's hard to climb the ladder.

Thanks, They are 8.3s 450hp. They're great engines, they seem much smaller than the 903s that most of these boats have. Every time I'm on the boat they amaze me by how quiet and smooth they are.

I have a '86 Bertram Brochure, the 42' in it looks just like this one, is it basically the same boat? 39k lbs, 488 gallons of fuel, 14' 10" beam.

Were the Cummins and Lugger new in 2001 or were they rebuilds? This looks like an awesome opportunity to step up...

They were new with new gears, dripless stuffing boxes and props. The props were just sent out in November when the boat was hauled for it's annual bottom job. It also got the major services on the engines and genny as well as a list of other odds and ends. The Life raft was also sent out and certified. I think the bill for everything done in November was was over $8000!

Here are a few pictures of the Bertram's replacement. One of the few privately owned Coast Guard 41 UTilities out there. It arrived last week.

You need to understand that the boat is used as a year round commuter and fiberglass is no good at breaking ice. Also, the bow of the Bertram gets super slippery on frosty mornings and there have been a couple of bad falls. When your by yourself on a boat in twentyfive degree weather and five foot seas it's good to know you have five water tight bulkheads and serious crash pumps in the engine compartment. My father struggled with the idea of giving up the comfort of the Bertram but it's a more responsable boat to use for the job. Besides, the 41 UTB is about as macho a boat as a guy can own in my opinion.
