Nothing in powerboating history has equaled the worldwide popularity of the original deep-V, the Bertram 31. Offered in several model configurations, over two thousand 31s were produced during her two decades of production, many of which were Flybridge Cruisers. Key to the lasting popularity of these boats on the used market is her unsurpassed—almost legendary—rough-water seakeeping ability and her rugged construction. The spacious cockpit of the Bertram 31 is free of obstructions, and the cushioned engine boxes make a great place to sit and watch the baits. While the cabin is hardly plush, the accommodations are comfortable and efficiently arranged with a convertible dinette to port, galley and dinette opposite, and a V-berth forward. Regular production of the 31 Flybridge Cruiser ended in 1983, but 23 “Silver Anniversary” models were built in 1986 with oak interiors and custom hull striping. Twin 330hp MerCruiser gas engines (22–24 knots cruise) powered the majority of the Bertram 31s with several GM, Cat, or Cummins diesels offered as options. Note that the Bertram 31 Sport Fisherman is essentially the same boat without the cabin bulkhead.


Classic deep-V fishing boat with big-water DNA has never been equaled in popularity with dedicated offshore anglers.


Principal features include spacious fishing cockpit, cushioned engine boxes, efficient cabin layout with enclosed head, top-quality construction. Legendary deep-V hull delivers unsurpassed seakeeping ability.


Definitely a wet ride. Out of production in 1983, twenty “Silver Anniversary” models were built in 1986.


Twin 330hp MerCruiser gas engines cruise at 22–23 knots (30+ top).
