Manufacturer Provided Description

For all its tranquil lines and sensuous styling, the Bertram 42 Convertible is one hardworking, practical boat. It handles tough weather like a seasoned pro. Bertram's high-tech engineering and tough construction give this 42-footer all the strength and durability one could ask for without slowing her down. She has a cruising range of almost 400 miles and a top speed of 35 miles an hour, which makes for refreshing rides up top or comfortable cruising below. Beautiful lush fabrics and teak veneer accent luxury features, which include a giant salon with a convertible lounge. The galley offers a myriad of space and can be equipped to create anything from simple sandwiches to gourmet meals. A full-size refrigerator and a range with an oven are only a few standard necessities. What passengers don't notice right away is all the additional space. There is a pantry that's more than handy, an above-counter sliding locker for additional storage, even a hidden storage opening through a countertop hatch. Continuing below is a master stateroom that's high, wide and handsome, with a large bed and a private head with a stall shower. The forward cabin, too, makes imaginative use of space, with two extra-large berths and an adjoining head with a shower.
