Bertram 38 Mk III 1982 M/V Gone Coastal
The Bertram 38 Mark III replaced the original Bertram 38 Convertible built from 1970 through 1976. Faster, lighter, and roomier than her predecessor, the 38 III’s large cockpit and tournament-style flybridge make her well suited for serious sportfishing. Her two-stateroom floorplan has room for an optional head in the forward stateroom. Ample storage is offered throughout. A spacious in-line galley runs the entire starboard side of the salon. In 1982, Bertram replaced the original Nautilex cockpit sole with a fiberglass deck (a major improvement). Although a rather wet ride, the 38 III is a capable sea boat. Caterpillar 3208-T diesels (300hp, 18-20 knots cruise) were popular. Production ceased in 1987 with a total of 331 Bertram 38 IIIs sold making her one of the best selling 38-foot sportfishing boats ever built.
M/V Gone Coastal is in original (not restored) condition with original equipment throughout. Continual upgrades keep her in serviceable condition. Standard 2 stateroom layout, head with separate stall shower, galley up (along stbd side, main salon). Flybridge only control station. Powered by original Cat 3208-T engines, each with approx. 3300 hours.
