I don't know much about the 25' but I have a 1988 39'er . It is great !! One hell of a boat !! The Yamahas are excellent power choice for dependibility . Most fishing guys like them . They go forever .
COme on you OE guys , step up and give some advise . The OE post was one of the biggest ones on the board . I guess they all got tired of typing !
I think you will like the boat . JOE
