1985 Bertram Yacht 38 Express Fighting Lady

M/V Fighting Lady was one of the largest express sportfishing yachts of her day. She has aggressive styling and a very large cockpit giving you the elbow room to move about the cockpit fighting fish after fish. Bertram’s quality of build appealed to the most serious of fishing enthusiasts. M/V Fighting Lady is a solid fishing platform, and with her recent upgrades she is ready to take her new owner fishing.  More photos to come.
