I am the 2nd owner of 28 Bertram Sportfisher. I have owned the boat for 17 years and purchased it from a Doctor who used it to cruise around and do light fishing in the bay. This boat has never been fished offshore or in rough seas like almost every 28 Bertram has been. It was mainly used for light fishing (such as fluke fishing) and cruising around with my family. I have maintained the boat flawlessly and have put a lot of time effort and money into this boat. No expense has been spared or anything neglected. I have done many upgrades.
-This boat has Twin 305 Fresh water cooled Mercruiser inboards. The oil has been changed regularly. I have put a max of 350 hours on these motors in the past 17 years. The compression is excellent in both motors. They start right up every time and run perfectly. There are no strange noises and the transmissions shift flawlessly.
-An Epoxy Barrier coat was put on the bottom of the hull about 6 years ago after the bottom paint was blasted off and any small issues in the hull addressed. As most people know the 28 Bertram is susceptible to blisters. After putting this barrier coat on the boat, this 28 Bertram will be blister free.
-There are new gauges on the flybridge, all of which match the factory gauges.
-There is a GPS system on the boat with a new screen.
-The electrical system was completely rewired with top of the line fully tinned marine grade wire.
-The props were sent out last season to be reconditioned. I sent them to a shop that uses a computer system to recondition the props to exact specifications.
-The old fiberglass fuel tank was completely removed from the boat and a brand new 165 gallon aluminum fuel tank was installed.
-Lenco trim tabs were installed 4 years ago.
-A custom made wood free fiberglass swim platform was installed 6 years ago.
-The throttle and shift cables have been replaced.
-New Air intake covers have been installed. They were remade using polished stainless steel as opposed to the original chrome covers.
-The coming pads were custom made.
-The inside of the Flybridge was resprayed with gelcoat.
-A water alarm is installed to alert the captain to high water in the bilge.
-A fire alarm is installed under the deck with the alerting unit in the Flybridge.
- Fuel vapor alarm alerts the captain to fuel vapors under the deck.
- Automatic fire suppression system activates when fire is sensed.
- Two bilge pumps have been installed in astern and one aft.
- In addition, a system has been installed in the bilge that has hoses which when a valve is turned will use the motors as bilge pumps to remove water from the bilge in a situation where the bilge pumps do not work or the capacity is not high enough. Basically they are a fail safe on a fail safe.
-Custom made covers for the cockpit and Flybridge prevent snow and water from getting in the boat during storage.
- Custom made covers for the cockpit and Flybridge with windows that zipper open.
- The small amount of the teak on the boat was replaced with maintenance free manufactured wood that was engineered to fit exactly where the teak fit.
- There is an automatic battery charger on boat.
- The striping on the boat was also resprayed and shined like new.
This boat is in amazing condition, especially for it's age. It has the original gelcoat which you can still see your reflection in. The nonskid on the deck is still in excellent condition as well. If you have any questions at all or would like additional pictures please feel free to contact me. I am asking $27,500. I am also willing to trade for a 21-25 ft newer center console with a 4-stroke motor or motors. Thank you for looking at this boat.
