Built on the now-famous deep-V hull designed by Ray Hunt, the 31 Bertram could go fast in big seas and tracked down-sea like no other boat that anyone had ever seen. A huge cockpit made fishing a pleasure, and it didn’t take long before 31' Bertram 's were scattered across the oceans of the world in both charter and private service. Many of them are still running today, a tribute to their rugged construction, most notably at Tropic Star Lodge in Panama, where the entire fleet consists of 31 Bertrams.

The Mar 1's Captain

Mar1-Captain-MerlinMerlin Badilla, I am a Captain and owner of Mar 1, Marlin B and the Marlin Restaurant, on the beach, outside of the Manuel Antonio National Park.

I grew up here in Quepos, and I have been fishing ever since I remember, every river, estuary and rock around.
