Bertram 58 Motor Yacht 1979

I am the owner of a Bertram 58 Motor Yacht with a 10ft added cockpit.

I am having problems solving leaks in the salon area from what I thougth was the windows. I have since sealed the windows however the leaks continue when I travel in rough seas at an average of 12 knots.

Has anyone had the same experience and has any ideas on what the cause of the leaks could be?

Any help would be appreciated !

The rub rails are a good place to look.

Check all of the drains in the flybridge, a lot of times the limber holes get plugged up, the water level rises, and runs down the wiring chases. Or from the screws holding the flybridge down as well.

Yes I finally found the leaks. It was the long engine vent on the side of the hull.

I am glad you found your leak but it took you a long time to fix it.

Thank you for your follow up. Now the rusty gears in my head have been cranking.
Did your leaks leave water on the saloon deck or raining in the engine room?

I ask because I'm about to tackle a leak that only appears in a heavy rain or seas. The after, starboard corner of the engine room leaks (pours) from the overhead. In the area of the original DCv blowers and under the saloons stb A/C unit. I had thought it was the air box for the blowers but the ER vent boxes have been on my mind since your reply.

Thx, Ralph

Hi, I am considering the purchase of a boat like yours and would like to know what engines you have, hours and approx. consumption at cruising speed. Also could you tell me what year is it and if you have frequent problems with blisters?
Thank you!

Dear Captain Alex

We have been offline for a while now. Sorry for not responding sooner (albeit a year later).

Melissa Anne (previously "Heavenly") is a 1979 Bertram 58 MY with a 10ft cockpit. She has Detroit 12V 71 TI's. I purchased her in May 2009 and she had 1100hr SMOH. We run her at 12knots and the fuel consumption at that speed is approx 23 gallons an hour, 1500 rpm.

We have some blister problems and there is a sister ship to ours here (Real Steel - previously "Miss Elaine-e-us" - 1982) which does not seem to have blister problems.
