33 Flybridge Cruiser
Length w/ Pulpit:
The Bertram 33 Flybridge Cruiser (not to be confused with the Bertram 33 Sport Fisherman built during the same time period) is a versatile pocket convertible for fishing, cruising, and entertaining. Built on the same solid fiberglass hull as the 33 Sport Fisherman, the 33 Flybridge Cruiser has a taller profile and larger interior than her sistership, but a smaller cockpit. Originally offered with a single stateroom layout with the galley forward to port in the salon, a more popular two-stateroom interior with an in-line galley to starboard in the salon became standard in 1980. A lower helm was optional, and most were sold with a swim platform and bow pulpit. In 1981 the flybridge was updated (the helm console was moved aft to allow bench seating forward), and in 1984 a teak interior replaced the original wood grain mica cabinets. The Bertram 33 II version introduced in 1988 has a restyled flybridge, and light oak woodwork replaced the teak cabinets and trim. Fuel capacity was increased for gas models in 1980, and a stall shower became standard in 1992. Twin 340hp gas engines cruise at 18 knots. Cat 260hp diesel cruise at 22 knots, and 320hp Cats cruise at 2526 knots (30 knots top).
Overview Preium flybridge cruiser with classic Bertram profile took small-convertible comfort to the next level.
