Our newest listing: a value-priced Bertram Barron race boat: 28 ft. 1968.

September 10, 2020 in Uncategorized


Bertram Barron Race Boat: 28 ft. 1968

 

Bertram made only 11 of these special speedboats. Nine (9) of these went to the. Israeli Government as special gun boats. This boat was used in the famous 1968 Miami to Nassau Race. The boat was then unused for many years. The chrome, gel coat, engines have all be redone along with a new teak floor. Dash and gauges have also been redone to the point where the boat needs nothing. It is powered by Twin Ford Engines offering 300 HP each.  Since the engines have been redone the boat has seen only 2 hours of use on the water. This is believed to be the last of the 11 boats known to exist. For Bertram lovers this does not get any better.

Price reduced to $30,000 CAD – about $22, 500  USD at current exchange rates. (Sept. 2020)
(A trade would also  be considered). For further details and contact information, please click on the link. Ad number pb921

Editor’s note: (This appears to be  first-class boat at a “rock bottom” price.)

Incredible price reducation on Esco cabin cruiser.

Esco cabin cruiser; 35 ft., 1949

Please see notes from the owner below.
Boat Description
“Pudgie was built in Essex, Ontario, by James Whitson and his crew at the Esco Boat Co. I am the third owner of this well cared for boat. She turns heads every where we go. She is a custom boat, with her own Good looks. Something different!! Many interesting details in her construction. Simple and roomy, down below. This boat has seen many ACBS shows in the area and gets used regularly. I have owned and enjoyed “Pudgie” for 12 yrs, including a 2 week Honeymoon, among the Erie Islands of western Lake Erie, 2015.
The Chrysler Marine 383, engine was installed new in 1963. The heads were done in 2003, new exhaust manifolds, Petronix ignition, 2015. The engine has had meticulous care. She purrs like a kitten. The windshield was completely rebuilt and the bottom re-caulked ( with cotton, the old fashioned way) and re-fastened in 2014-15. New toilet and flooring in the head, 2019.”
