Antique Commuter Yacht

Not a rover by a long shot but thought this might of interest to someone here. The boat is in LA and Im in Maine almost full time so no time to enjoy her and shipping isnt realistic. Its been almost a year since Ive been able to go out on it. Ive put a ridiculous amount of money into this one of a kind boat and its turn key. I would consider interesting trades of similar value but no longer need a boat 3000 miles away that Im paying for a slip and maintainance on but have no ability to use.

You'll have to change your user-name if you sell it.

Good luck with the sale. Seems like a rare and beautiful boat.

Wow!

A beautiful boat. A few years ago, I considered buying something similar (although not nearly as beautiful or $$$$!) and living on it like one of my sailors did about a decade ago while I was stationed in San Diego. Slip spots at Navy base marinas are reasonably cheap, and he basically had a Coronado address for nearly nothing. I imagined myself living on a boat, getting an alligator for a pet like Sonny Crockett, etc., etc.

Now it would still be cool, although the base marinas in the Norfolk area are right next to or directly beneath the flight pattern for the heliports or the airport final. I may like flying them, but I don't want to hear them all day, sound of freedom or not.

Good luck with the sale!

Thanks Bryan. It is a very cool boat but like our Rovers you pour time and money into them with no hope of seeing it again in the resale. I really just hope It finds a home with someone that can look after her properly so she will be around another 70 years. I cant tell you how much I needed to fix based on the previous owners ignorance.

You can stay at my place and I will do your divorce pro bono. Plus we can enjoy the yacht and the rover parts together.

Gorgeous boat John. I have a 31 ft, 31knot, Bertram sportfish that I have done similar things to and am now agonizing with the decision to sell- its certainly not easy, the financial bath is insult on top of injury.

Love the awlgrip flag blue color- used it on mine as well. That hull cover/canvas grabbed my attention. I have never seen one of those before. Is it a pain to take on and off when you want to use the boat ?

Bertram 31

My friend is toying with buying a 31. If you decide to sell please send pictures and info.
I just sold my sailboat and it is a buyers market. It was a Nonsuch 22. they only made about 60 of them and it still took 10 months.

Thanks Doug. I love the 31 Bertrams. One of the best Sportfishers ever built IMO. Must look nice with a blue hull.

The cover is easy to take off and a pain to put on. Since Im away from the boat for long stretches at a time it really goes a long way to protecting the hull and cutting down on maintenance costs.

Wow I'm tempted to buy it and I would gladly get a divorce... Loan payments on that would be about 1/4 of what I'm paying now on my mortgage... LOL... My sister has a condo close to were you moor it I could pop in to use the laundry and piss her husband off... Oh what a nice dream for a retired sailor and buying the boat would be nice also
