JUST REDUCED FOR QUICK SALE:  This very bristol 46 Bertram Sportfish is located in Stamford CT. 

She is in the water and ready to cruise with her new owner or captain at the helm.  She is powered by twin Detroit Diesel 6V92's 550HP.  Her engines are 1989 that were rebuilt and installed in 2008 and have an estimated 450hrs SMOH. So this great yacht, with it's deep V hull is perfect for cruising or up to her next blue water sport fish trip for that big game fish you have been dreaming of. 


It must be noted that every inch of her interior has been replaced and updated including teak and holley flooring, new entertainment center, removal of the lower helm station for more space and other extensive renovations.  She is a two stateroom and two head layout so there is no shortage of accomodations and she will sleep six owners and guests comfortably.  With a mid galley the salon offers a warm feel of teak and spacious views from her large windows.  Cruising is a joy and you feel as though you are on what she is, a big beautiful yacht.  She has a big bridge and a good amount of upgrades, outriggers, electronics etc. Her current owner has taken meculous care of this fine yacht and has been a client of our for over fifteen years. We can attest to his professional approach for maintenance, service, cosmetics and upgrades. 


 If you have always thought about what it would be like to own a Bertram think about this.  Bertram is a Legendary fishing machine—dominant in 1970s, early 1980s—this one of the most popular convertible designs ever produced. Principal features include huge fishing cockpit, roomy interior, large bridge, seakindly deep-V hull.


Brokers Observations:  This is one of the cleanest 46 Bertrams we have seen in a very long time. Her interior looks like a brand new yacht and you feel like your stepping into a yacht at a boat show.  It must be seen to be appreciated. Her owner is well known to us and if you are in the market for a classic sportfish cruiser or battlewagon you must see this. We suggest you come as soon as possible. Her owner wants this sold and to begin looking for his next great yacht.
