    Hi All,

    I was wondering whether anyone had or could point in the direction of some plans - Profile and Layout, for a Bertram 38' 1982....?
    We are basically doing a refit project and bringing the boat back to life. Cheers

    Try the Powerboat Guide. The layout's in there. 1982 or '83 was the last year for the lav/sink in the vee berth. I think that's the only layout change they made. A few had inside helm.

    Eventually the cockpit deck changed from plywood to fiberglass. Some had flybridge ladder to starboard, some to port. That's about it I think. They didn't change the 38 III much over the run.

    Rer,

    Thanks for the heads up, it's close to what we need. It's in pdf format, so can hopefully make that work in cad.

    Out of interests, why the sink in the v-birth...? Cheers

    The conveniences of a second head, crowbarred into a layout where there isn't enough space for it.

    The 42' Hatteras Convertible had the same feature as did other builders. Fell out of fashion in the 1980's.

    I had a 1981 Bertram 38' that had a second head and lavatory in the V berth area:
    It was nice! It really came in handy when the primary head would not flush!!
