Out On A Limb Yacht Description

A proven tournament winner and the sportfishing superstar of her era, the Bertram 54 is one of the most popular Convertibles her size ever built.  Indeed, only a few boats compared with the 54 when it came to open-water handling and heavy weather performance.  Built on a solid fiberglass Deep V Hull, several Three-Stateroom interiors were available over the years.  This interior has an L-shaped dinette forward to starboard in the Salon, opposite the U-shaped Galley.  The Master Stateroom is to port and includes a walk-around queen bed and private Head with shower.  The forward VIP Stateroom comes with V-berths and also includes a private head / shower, while the starboard Guest Stateroom has over / under berths and access to the Guest Head.  A washer / dryer was a popular option, and later models have a light oak interior rather than the original teak woodwork.

Salesman's Comments

The 54' Bertram was a proven tournament winner and has been regarded as one of the best sportfishing yachts of her era. Near perfect blend of design and construction - Few production or custom boats her size compare when it comes to heavy weather handling. Huge Cockpit offers excellent fishability.
