Good condition Bertram! Many new upgrades! Loaded with amenities and ready to cruise!

The 1973 Bertram 42 is a classic 70's motoryacht powered by twin Cummins 903 diesel engines. Picked up at auction, this boat is running and functional for immediate local use.

The boat layout is somewhat unusual as the mid-level galley is forward with a hallway to starboard opening to the forward v-berth cabin with a private head and shower. Aft of the salon is the full beam master stateroom with two single beds, a private head and shower, vanity, and large hanging lockers. A hallmark of these boats is the enormous headroom in all quarters.

A 12kw Onan generator is located below decks which powers the entire boat when not on shore power.

A complete galley is working to provide you with all the tools needed for meals and refreshments.

There is ample seating in the main salon for conversation and meals.

These old boats take you back to your roots and this one is waiting for you in Pittsburg, CA; come and see it for yourself.
