Finest example of a well-cared-for 42 Bertram on the market.  Continuous upgrades and the perfect power package, 450 Cummins Diamond Series, for extremely efficient cruising or a day offshore.  She is a proven fish raiser and has been cared for by the same owner for over 15 years.  

Annie C is a 1978 42’ Bertram FBC. She was purchased by the current owner in 2004 with apx 500 hrs on the Cummins 450C engines.

She has continuously been upgraded and meticulously maintained by a knowledgeable owner and licensed captain with any needed repairs undertaken as soon as possible. Her engines and generator have been serviced by the same Cummins mechanic for 17 years, no less than annually and at 200-275 hr intervals. The owner has complete service, repair, and improvement records.


Her Cummins 450C engines and ZF gears provide a 21kt cruise with a total fuel burn of apx 33 gals/hr. The engines currently have about 3420 hours and the 8KW Northern Lights generator has apx 3500 hours. She has a galley down layout with two staterooms.

Manufacturer Provided Description
For all its tranquil lines and sensuous styling, the Bertram 42 Convertible is one hardworking, practical boat. It handles tough weather like a seasoned pro. Bertram's high-tech engineering and tough construction give this 42-footer all the strength and durability one could ask for without slowing her down. She has a cruising range of almost 400 miles and a top speed of 35 miles an hour, which makes for refreshing rides up top or comfortable cruising below. Beautiful lush fabrics and teak veneer accent luxury features, which include a giant salon with a convertible lounge. The galley offers a myriad of space and can be equipped to create anything from simple sandwiches to gourmet meals. A full-size refrigerator and a range with an oven are only a few standard necessities. What passengers don't notice right away is all the additional space. There is a pantry that's more than handy, an above-counter sliding locker for additional storage, even a hidden storage opening through a countertop hatch. Continuing below is a master stateroom that's high, wide and handsome, with a large bed and a private head with a stall shower. The forward cabin, too, makes imaginative use of space, with two extra-large berths and an adjoining head with a shower. Disclaimer
