    Those old Bertrams are cool. Id want one of the rare ones with the inside the cabin 2nd station for those cold/rough days. Or if I win the lottery create a sister ship to one that was restored/converted to a walk around that Darrell fishes.

    Amazing job every time and extremely affordable. I'll be calling him if I ever need another boat shipped.

    Michael moved mine 253-358-0880. His trailer can be adjusted to haul any boat

    Oh yeah I forgot. Without a homeless “crisis” they have fewer excuses to add more taxes.

    Meh. Not excited about Skagit orcas and their narrow beam and small cockpits.

    I'm coming off a 30x10.5 grady that has sea keeping abilities that will be hard to match so my options are limited. But I want to stay between 28 and 32 feet so I can still drag it around.

    Good lookin out tho

    If that is what you’re after don’t miss out looking at the Rampage 30 offshore and the Shamrock 290....

    They are the same hull made by a good builder the finish on the two can vary slightly, but twin diesel, well equipped offshore boat that handles well. Saltwater magazine did a nice article and compared it to the Cabo.....

    Look at 2002 and newer to stay away from the “cored hull” below the waterline. Although many builders including Bertram have cored hulls it scares many on a used boat... if every through hull is not done right and monitored it could have bad results... the core above the waterline helps eliminate vibration and noise...

    Yikes the cost appears equal to or greater than $10 grand. Sucks that east coasters are so adverse to trailers.

    I second considering the Shamrock/Rampage 29. They come up from time to time with twin Yanmars in the 55-70K range. The 31 Bert is a legendary cool boat, but also known to be a wet ride.

    Those Bertram's are cool. I did a trip down to Panama where 3 of the 6 days fishing were on one their 2 Bertram's. One thing to consider is with the Diesels, they are freaking loud! When we would troll, or especially when running, you pretty much had to shout to hear each other. It gets kinda tiring after a while....

    Not all diesels are that loud... My twin Yanmars are not that loud when cruising around 3000-3200 rpms... and definitely not loud at a troll.. We talk with a typical voice at troll, and cruising a slightly raised voice not much different than twin outboards..... They are loud right when you hammer it to get up on step, the. They ease in and are fine.... the diesel exhaust is definitely a consideration, especially when the wind is blowing it back into the cabin area...I have had friends that never got sea sick, suddenly have some nausea.... we decided it must be because of the fumes....

    I don't think East Coast boaters are trailer adverse. A 31 Bertram is not intended to be a trailer boat. Also most people on the East Coast wet slip their boats as they have considerably more dockage than we do on the West Coast. You can trailer a 31 Bertram but more than a few times a year and it is going to get old fast.

    Older Diesels will be notably louder and have more soot in the exhaust than newer common rail engines. Just something to be aware of. They will though be cheaper to fix.

    10k to move the boat over land is a reasonable price for that much boat considering height, beam, and weight. I would have someone haul it out on their commercial trailer adjusted to fit your boat. As others have stated pull the props ahead of time. You personally should also be there to make sure you are familiar with how everything is de rigged prior to being hauled so you know how to put it back together as this is a new boat to you.

    Good Luck.
