Seller says this boat must go!!
Recently purchased in the Keys about 1 year ago and brought to SW Florida.
New Bottom. Blasted, Barrier Coated and Bottom Painted (8/21 - 11/21). She has also had her steering fixed, but there is a lot of work still to be done. Nice Wood Flooring, Two Stateroom, Galley down design.
The engines and generator run good. All three air conditioners blow cold. Inside appliances all work. She is in need of having her turbos rebuilt, a new anchor windlass and outfitted with your choice of electronics. Other than being overdue for a complete detail, the rear cockpit frame needs canvas, (or removed) if that option is desired by the new owner.
Seller has moved and can no longer finish his dream. He is open and subject to all reasonable offers that result in a quick closing.

The Bertram 46 Convertible was for many years the standard by which other production sportfishing boats her size were measured. Her popularity had much to do with the precise handling and impressive seakeeping characteristics of her deep-V hull, a proven rough-water performer with a wide beam and low cockpit freeboard. Several two- and three-stateroom floorplans were available during her production years, two of which are presented here. Significant updates include a single sliding salon door replacing the original double doors in 1981, a fiberglass cockpit sole (replacing the Nautilex liner) and new teak interior in 1982, and transom door in 1985. The 46 III model (1986–87) featured a restyled interior with light oak woodwork and revised cockpit with slightly increased dimensions. Prior to 1981, the most popular engines were Detroit 435hp 8V71 diesels (20 knots cruise/22–23 knots top). In 1981, 570hp 8V92 Detroit diesels became available (mid 20s cruise). Note that the fuel capacity was increased to 720 gallons in 1983. A popular model for many years after production ended in 1987, the Bertram 46 Convertible is widely considered a classic sportfishing design
