Bertram 38 boat

G’day to all, I’m from Perth and new to your forum. I hope someone can help me with some info about a 1986 Bertram 38 Express special. I have found a restored one thats for sale and want to know if anyone has owned or fished on one. Any info would be appreciated. Attached Images  .

I don’t think that is an original 38 Special. It looks like a flybridge cut down to an express. Might be a great boat but not a 38 Special. more

That’s a 38 Special without the plexi side windows. I believe it’s the one for sale with Volvo’s, which I wouldn’t care for especially. I owned one, repowered with Cummins 450’s and think it was the best fishing platform I’ve had except for poor fish storage. Wonderful sea boat, will not pound ya. It has a roomy shower for a 38 footer, 24 degree vee all the way back (approx) and you can air condition the helm area fairly easily. If it’s the Volvo powered one I think it is, I’d look carefully at more

I don’t think that is an original 38 Special. It looks like a flybridge cut down to an express. Might be a great boat but not a 38 Special. Funny, I thought the same thing. Lines look more like a 40 Ocean Express (which I know it’s def not) than a 38′ Special. They made the special without portholes / windows in the hull too I guess. Regardless, I thought the 38’s were awesome back in the day. Sorry I could be of any help. J more

That’s a hull fixer upper, the vents aren’t original either. Those molded boxes and the positioning of the cleats give it away. It’s a special. It’s listed in Ft Lauderdale with lots more pics. more

Wonderful sea boat, will not pound ya. It has a roomy shower for a 38 footer, 24 degree vee all the way back (approx) Your approximate is off by quite a bit. It is 18 degrees — still pretty big for a 38, but 24 degrees is go-fast and under 28′ size range. Those are good riding hulls, but like most Bertrams built before 1995, it lacks good fish storage or a built in livewell. more

LI32, I recall the original factory drawings on the boat and, for the life of me, can’t remember if it was 20 or 22 degrees at stern, pretty sure it wasn’t 18 degrees. There was a change in Bert hulls, 38’s specifically years before which reduces vee a tad, think that’s when changed from Hunt to Napier. The 38 Specials have a built in livewell stbd, came from factory all plumbed with seperate breaker/pump. The Volvo’s have never been a favorite, tempermental, very expensive parts and service see more

I can’t speak to the individual boat you are looking at but the 38 Bertrams are particularly nice boats as others have mentioned. I own a 1983 38 Flybridge model and am very pleased with it. Good luck, R. more

One of my favorite expresses after seeing the one that Shark owned/owns. The one above looks very pretty and I wouldn’t think you could go wrong with new power for the price that is being asked. I am not a fan of Volvos either. I only owned two and they were both tempermental and parts prices are $$$$. Did I mention that Volvo prices increase by a percentage yearly. If you can find service for them and the boat survey’s well I would think I would buy it. more

That boat in the picture looks very nice and that color makes it very actual to today lookers. more

18 is correct. more

Believe it or not, Powerboat Guide lists the deadrise at 17 degrees. more

According to a couple of Berrtam spec sheets I have the 38 FBC (which is the same hull as the 38 Special) has it listed as 17.5. I guess the Powerboat Guide doesn’t round up. more

Anyone have any other pictures of a 38 special? I don’t think I have ever heard of one. The one in the above post is very sharp. more

I have personally been aboard this boat they claim it only has 190-200 original hours on the Volvos. but when you actually see the engines it looked to me to have way more hours than that. There was alot of rust corrosion on the engines. I’ve had boats that had 2000 hours on a pair of motors they never looked like that. Maybe it has been neglected or just sitting around. more
