General Details

Built by Bertram so the quality is second to none. Outstanding sea keeping, handling and manueverability. She is powered by a pair of Cummins 6BTA 370 HP Diesels  and will cruise at a comfortable 25 knots at 2400 RPM and top out at around 30 knots. Fitted with a custom tower she is rigged to fish for the serious angler. Interior space is equipped with a double berth forward, small galley, convertible dinette and a stand up head and shower.


Designed to appeal to both the cruiser and serious angler, the 30 Moppie is a good looking inboard express with a sleek profile to go with her rugged construction. Employing the hull of the from the Bertram 30 Convertible (Model years 84-85) the Moppie's clean lines offer plenty of  appeal. Access to the engines below decks is very good. Deep Vee bottom (18.5 degree transom deadrise),the 30"MOPPIE" is one of the finest performing boats in her size/class range ever produced incorporating Deep Vee performance, speed, a much drier ride than the legendary 31 Hunt Designed Bertram and VERY RESPECTABLE fuel economy. She is a pleasure to see and a pleasure to show.
