1986 Bertram 54′ Convertible

Proven tournament winner and a superstar of her era, the 54 Bertram is easily one of the most popular and well re guarded mid 50-foot sportfishing yachts ever built. With her near perfect blend of design, engineering, and construction, she delivers superb rough water performance. Indeed, few production (or Custom) boats her size can tough the Bertram 54 when it comes to heavy weather handling. A 3 stateroom 2 head layout, 140 square feet of tournament cockpit, enormous flybridge and excellent electronics package makes “Out On A Limb” a great vessel for offshore fishing or cruising. She offers a 25kt cruise and a top end of 30kts.
