Arguably the most famous sport fishing boat design ever built, the 31 Bertram has achieved a near cult status, infecting boaters around the world.
Designed by Ray Hunt and built by Richard Bertram, the 31 was in production for 25 years.
Re-powered in 2015 with new, twin 6BTA Cummins, she cruises fast, quiet, and smoke free. With a flat, open cockpit, and 130 lb Pompanette fighting chair, she is prepared for any fish catchable. Her tuna tower ensures we have the best view, and her state of the art electronics, all new in 2016, make sure we stay on the fish! With a full head and cabin for napping once worn out from fishing, she's the perfect classic battlewagon.
New for 2016 was the purchase of approximately 42 new rod and reel combos, a completely new terminal tackle, lures, and spreader bars suite, as well as new swivel rod holders and fighting chair.
With the addition of new electronics we installed some additional safety features as well including Sea Surface Temperature charts on our GPS allowing for both tracking warm water for fishing as well as real time weather reports and forecast overlays showing approaching weather. The life raft is now complimented by an EPIRB and Sat Phone, allowing continuous contact. If you need the number of the Sat Phone in order to remain in touch with family or friends while offshore in case of emergency or news, please let Captain Dave know at the time of the booking.
