31′ Bertram Sport Fish
BVI Yacht Sales Overview
1964 31′ Bertram Sport Fish ‘Double Diamond’
‘Double Diamond’ is one of the few rare classic sportfish boats in this area, designed and built for the serious purist fisherman over 50 years ago ; and her design has not been beat since , in the eyes of many. She is a pure fishing boat, designed to keep you safe, get you to and from grounds fast, and to be comfortable and close to the water so you can focus on the most important thing – Getting FISH!
Having undergone a complete and total re-fabrication in 2017-18 she has like new, low hour, 425 hp Mercruiser motors – “Damn the Torpedoes!” – capable of speeds reported over 40 kts, you will cruise at 22kts or so but in rough weather may back off to 16kts for comfort.
Fully set up for fishing, she has also had an extensive interior refit with new hull and headliners, new cushions and toilet, the saloon deck and forward cabin provide ample comfort for the occasional night onboard, including full canvas enclosures if the weather ever turns bad.
Her fly bridge has a very nice full suspension helm seat, and all the electronics and guages set around a carbon ‘dash’ board.
“Owning one of these is about pride in ownership. Its about people who love fine boats. If you haven’t fallen in love with her (Oh, yeah, it is a HER!), go buy a lesser breed. Don’t disgrace the Gods of the Sea and yourself by buying and neglecting one of these classics.” – David Pascoe (Marine Surveyor)
