Our 1978 Bertie has been well maintained and updated over her well loved years.

Lying Key Largo Florida, she is ready to cruise, charter or make a great livaboard in upper Key's best full service marina.

Just now we have too many boats and have been using her as a "berth & breakfast" guest cottage with a fully documented LLC small business. Also a great opportunity for an owner/ partnership who does want year round use and her downtime rentals will pay the dockage and more. I am local business owner and may continue to manage the vessel for the right party.

Please take a look through our many photos. NEW pix at

 The engines are well maintained, only 15 hours on port since full remanufacture. I have over $18K in receipts.  About 400 hours on the strbrd.  New fuel lines, tanks conditioned, etc. All holds are dry, clean and white. No generator...taken out to replace but have not found another. 3 Cruisairr HVAC. Over $30k spent (documented) in the last few years.

Exterior is in very good condition. Factory upgrade Hardtop over large flybridge. Electric upgraded to 50 amp service, newer safety equipment, dock lines. Electronics: Color GPS/Plotter, vhf, depth etc. older models but good. new beverage center on flybridge

Interior has been updated to a very comfortable, easy to maintain fully stocked guest house. Full size shower, large water heater, electric head, new holding tank. Full galley with new large fridge, glass cooktop, micro, all dishes and service ware. Too much to list. We have everything from new memory foam mattress toppers to wine glasses. Regarding our small business, please go to click on Key Largo scroll thru vacation rentals. Our boat is listed as "My Yacht is Your Yacht".

This boat has an open listing with several area yacht brokers. Please feel free to go through your broker.
