Best Boat Dealer: Bernie's Boats & Motors

With a name like Bernie's, a boat dealer is bound to be popular.

Advocate readers voted Bernie's Boats and Motors in Victoria the best boat dealer in the area.

The family-owned store has been in business since 1952, said Dennis Stumfoll, owner.

"My father started it," he said. "We've always strived to take care of our customers."

The business offers fiberglass boats, Gulf Coast boats and Xpress boats. They even have their own line of boats, the Desperado.

Bernie's first storefront was at 2102 N. Navarro St. As it out grew that area, the store moved to 5001 N. Navarro St.

Stumfoll said they have been around so long they are selling boats to grand-customers, or the kids and grandkids of their original customers.

"We appreciate the thought of everyone voted us No. 1," he said.
