HEAVY FIBERGLASS HULL, DIESEL ENGINES, RETRO BOAT! Remember when things were built to last and last? This robust 1973 Bertram boat is from that era. She is solidly built and will continue to provide good times on the waters of the Pacific Northwest for many more years to come. With over 1,800 of this 28-foot model built between 1973 and 1985, this is one of the most popular sport fisherman boats ever built. Most are still in action around the world. White Bird is in very good overall condition and has been maintained well.

Enter the main cabin through the lockable aft door. The interior is finished with a fiberglass sole, vinyl overhead, and vinyl and Formica bulkheads with aluminum framed windows. The port and starboard side windows slide open to let in fresh air. To starboard is a convertible dinette that seats four and sleeps two. To port is the vessel s head with A Jabsco hand pump toilet nice-sized hand sink, generous counter space and a long storage cubby. It s convenient location just inside the cabin door helps you keep the rest of the cabin clean when dripping wet fishing folks need to go. Beyond the dinette is the starboard side helm station with a bench seat that lowers for those times you d like to navigate standing up. A long bench seat is situated to port and features ample storage underneath the cushion. A hanging locker is forward of this bench seat and the v-berth in the bow sleeps two quite comfortably, or this area makes a great out-of-the-way place to store coats, coolers or other odds and ends. The cushions throughout the vessel were freshly replaced in 2014 and add a nice, updated touch to this well-maintained and clean vessel interior.
