General Description

This 1984 Bertram 46.6  is the finest example of Bertram strength during their best years. She's mostly original, cruised not fished, and is in excellent condition. The Detroit 8V92TIs have 2,300 mostly cruise (900-950 RPM) hours, run great and have never been overhauled.

Salon, staterooms and galley are like new with quality carpet, original teak and original headliner. All new canvas, seating and bolsters in 2016. All A/C controls updated to new digital type. Glass-Tech cockpit tackle center and live well. 

The current owners have owned Bertram's for most of their adult life and have lovingly cared for this one for the last ten years. Truly a fine example of Bertram's quality. Owners age and health causes reluctant sale.
