General Description

The Classic 31 Bertram Flybridge Cruiser is one of the finest sportfishing boats ever built and a reputation for catching fish. Her solid fiberglass hull and unique lines combined with a massive cockpit make her not only an exceptional fishing platform but also an economical weekend cruiser. The "Reel Lady" was completely refit in 2004 by John Patnovic of Worton Creek Marine in Chestertown, Maryland where by personal inspection not a dollar was spared. The Reel Lady is powered by a pair of low hour 440hp Yanmar diesel engines and has a 330 gallon fuel capacity which gives her outstanding range . She has a cruising speed of over 30 knots. A lower helm station in the main cabin provides the perfect alternative for those who sometimes prefer to escape the elements or enjoy the company of their guests onboard. The Reel Lady is appropriately named and without a doubt would be a sweet ride to call your own!


The Reel Lady features a salon consisting of a small galley to starboard with sink, microwave and refrigerator. A convertible dinette table which doubles as a berth with L shaped seating is located to port. Forward is lower the helm area to starboard. Down below you will find a comfortable V Berth area with overhead lockers. The marine toilet is concealed nicely under the center of the V Berth.
