The Fun Ticket is a 68-foot sports fisher. She was built for the owner of Bertram Yachts as a 58’ vessel in 1979 and a 10-foot cockpit extension with fighting chair was added before she left the yard in 1980.  A tuna tower was added in 1993 in Puerto Rico. This yacht is well-built with a solid fiberglass hull.

The interior layout is great, featuring three staterooms, three heads and showers, a fully-equipped galley, large salon and dining area and a laundry closet. Her exterior spaces are exceptional, offering an enormous, enclosed bridge, covered flybridge, tuna tower and a spacious cockpit. She can be driven from three different locations, including helms located in the enclosed bridge, flybridge and tuna-tower. In addition, there are clutch and throttle controls in the aft corner of the bridge that can be used when backing the boat.

The current owners report that The Fun Ticket has quite an interesting history. She's well-known in Puerto Rico where she served as a charter fishing boat for the casinos for several years. She was also owned by Crossland Boiler Works in Puerto Rico during the 1990’s and was well-loved by the employees of the company. During this period, The Fun Ticket is rumored to have been a favorite fishing charter of Joe Kennedy (son of Robert) and Patrick Kennedy (son of Edward) as well as having been chartered by Mariah Carey and Latin singer, Luis Miguel.

This boat is not just an extremely comfortable motor yacht. She is also a great sport fishing boat. With the two outriggers extended, you can easily run seven lines behind the vessel. Down below, she has two 650hp turbo-diesels that will cruise at 17-18 knots with 20 knots as the approximate top speed.  She has three different fuel tanks and can hold 2,100 gallons of fuel.

The current owners lived and cruised aboard this beautiful yacht for many, many years. She has been loved and well taken care of and is capable of providing her new owners with many years of happy memories.
