Manufacturer Provided Description

The Bertram 38 Special is designed for the serious sportsman. Comfortable accommodations for four include a wide V-berth, a cedar-lined closet, and a head with a stall shower. There's a posh convertible dinette and an L-shaped galley with a microwave. But the real attraction is topside. The bridgedeck provides room for anything from daytime to moonlight entertaining. Options include a cleverly positioned electronics pod (using only a portion of the chart flat) and an L-shaped lounge which houses an insulated icebox as well as more storage, a teak deck sole, and a tower. The cockpit anticipates tournament fishing.
