Classic Bertram Sinks While Moored in Maui

A classic ten meter Bertram sank while moored in its slip in Maui, Hawaii Islands on the late morning of twelve June.  According to information on social media the classic Bertram was with it engines running when its owner noticed it had standing water in its forward cabin.  Seeing this the owner shut down the engines and tried to identify the water leak only for the Bertram to sink even more and having its hull and part of the super structure sank in water.
The Bertram in this sinking is a 33 Sportfisherman model as designed by Dave Napier and produced from 1979 to 92.  The Bertram 33 debuted first with the more lower deck spacious Flybridge Cruiser in 1977, and was produced in over 350 units up to 1992 and including the updated II version which arrived in 1988.
