"54 Bertram Convertible 87"
Lighthouse Point, Florida
Photo 1 of 33

A proven leader among the serious Sport Fish models this highly maintained 540 Convertible is managed by her full time captain. With her near perfect of design, engineering and of course construction she is a dream in heavy blue water environments. Powered by a pair  Detroit Diesel BKX 1271 TI's with just over 1000 hours SMOH. She runs great and will cruise at 25 knots and top out around 28.

A long list of updates and her tastefully redecorated interior is what really makes her stand out to the 54 Bertram buyer.

Captain maintained in Ready to Go condition.
