There is not a sweeter 25' Bertram on the market today. The "Ava Theresa" is one of the original Moppies, built in 1962. Even 57 years later she still holds her lines. The Raymond Hunt Deep-Vee entry allows for a great ride-soft and dry. This vessel has been cared for by the current owner, and it shows! With numerous upgrades through the years, she has been brought up to the highest standard-"mechanically" and "cosmetically". This Classic NEEDS to be seen, to be appreciated.

Custom Aluminium Dual Axle Trailer Included!
