The Bertram Legend began with the 31'; this 1961 Sportfish is hull #6 (of approximately 1,800!) and meticulously rebuilt from the bilge to the bridge between 2013-2017. The Ray Hunt deep-vee hull delivers it famous ride in all seas and her timeless lines receive attention in every harbor.
Lady Marion was totally restored over the course of 3.5 years and 5,000 hours with extreme attention paid to detail throughout. She hasn't seen saltwater since the restoration and has been stored indoors with the exception of the 20 hours she's run since the conclusion of the project.
The owner loves projects and is ready for the next one. If a perfectly finished boat matters to you and you'd like to own an iconic piece of boating history, Lady Marion deserves your consideration.
