Accommodations and Features

RUM MONKEY is a classic 50 Bertram with a Deep V battle ship hull.  She is a well-traveled, updated vessel that has raised fish from Bermuda, down to St. Thomas.  Several of the highlights that make her unique are………..

  • CAT 3406e  800 hp engines repowered in 2001 with CAT generator
  • Recent custom paint job from waterline up
  • Full tower
  • Recent interior upgrades 

Her owner is a mega yacht captain and engineer.  She is mechanically sound and cosmetically upgraded.  To be fair, there are remaining projects and upgrades that her next owner may want to consider such as engine room paint and new bridge isinglass, BUT THE HEAVY LIFTING HAS BEEN DONE!  She is priced extremely fair for what she is and her condition.
