Boat needs some TLC. Owner doesn't have time to finish restoration.

Manufacturer Provided Description

For all its tranquil lines and sensuous styling, the Bertram 42 Convertible is one hardworking, practical boat. It handles tough weather like a seasoned pro. Bertram's high-tech engineering and tough construction give this 42-footer all the strength and durability one could ask for without slowing her down. She has a cruising range of almost 400 miles and a top speed of 35 miles an hour, which makes for refreshing rides up top or comfortable cruising below. The galley offers a myriad of space and can be equipped to create anything from simple sandwiches to gourmet meals. A full-size refrigerator and a range with an oven are only a few standard necessities. What passengers don't notice right away is all the additional space. There is a pantry that's more than handy, an above-counter sliding locker for additional storage, even a hidden storage opening through a countertop hatch. Continuing below is a master stateroom that's high, wide and handsome, with a large bed and a private head with a stall shower. The forward cabin, too, makes imaginative use of space, with two extra-large berths.


Standard two stateroom, galley down layout. Forward is v-berth with storage below. Directly aft is master stateroom with full size berth and double entry head with stall shower port side. Galley is directly across. Steps up to salon with entertainment center.
