The Bertram 54 PACIFIC PIONEER was designed and built by a knowledgeable yachtsman for long-range fishing and traveling. Commonly referred to as the “Battle Wagon,” the Bertram 54 is renowned for her wide beam and deep V hull design that cuts through rough water while offering a stable platform. She is also equipped with extra fuel for longer voyages. PACIFIC PIONEER has been beautifully maintained and benefitted from an extensive 2006 refit. She was stripped down and completely rebuilt at Basin Marine in Newport Beach, CA, with all new wiring, machinery, electronics and paint. The yacht showcases a custom-built hardtop with custom stainless-steel accents.
PACIFIC PIONEER’s interior is the ideal gathering space for guests to unwind after a day on the water. Custom teak cabinetry is seen throughout, with granite countertops and teak and holly flooring. Spacious, custom couches were added to accommodate all guests in absolute comfort and act as storage space for rods and tackle. An entertainment system is accompanied by a large TV and surround sound, welcoming guests to enjoy a movie or relax to their favorite show. The yacht’s main salon is home to a large dinette with plenty of seating and a well-equipped galley complete with a full complement of modern appliances. Sweeping windows surround the salon providing excellent visibility of the cruising grounds and plenty of natural light. The aft window is custom and double the size of a standard window, giving those who sit in the salon excellent views of the action taking place in the cockpit.
PACIFIC PIONEER welcomes seven guests in two guest cabins and one guest/crew cabin. The master stateroom to port features a large bed with storage beneath and an en-suite bathroom with a sizeable shower. A beautiful backlit Channel glass engraving completes the master suite. Ample tackle storage can be found, and large hanging closets ensure guests’ belongings are properly stowed. The forward stateroom offers three bunks with lots of rod storage. The adjacent en-suite bathroom features custom granite countertops and a large shower. To starboard are upper and lower bunks for crew or additional guests.
The Bertram 54 has timeless lines with extra wide side decks, a large beam and a spacious cockpit perfect for fishing or diving.

Her flybridge features two helm chairs and additional seating forward of the helm, offering prime visibility of the approaching destination. Her cockpit is a hub of action, fully-equipped with all necessary amenities required for successfully fighting fish. The yacht’s foredeck is home to a 14’ tender.
