My neighbor has one. I dont like sit down boats that go fast. The rear corner exhaust routing sounds goofy. Not sure how well they handle chop and rough. Nice gel work. I like the 27 thor cat.

Yea... I agree , the lack of S/U seats is odd. sj

When I was looking for a new boat I checked out the Nordic Rage as I thought it had great lines. The things I didn't like were that the cuddy is open to the cockpit. No cabin door. The sundeck is very short and at a steep angle. No stand up bolsters. It is very hard to get up on to the bow area from inside the boat. I've never gone for a ride in one so I don't know how they handle.

Nordic builds a great boat. If you are looking at the 25 Rage, I would HIGHLY suggest that you step up to the 28 Heat. You will love that extra three feet!

Good luck!

Steve,
I have a Nordic Heat (28') and love it. Nice convex lines, great gel work, smooth ride, large cabin for a 28'er, good performance.
I prefer the hard deck, but the bowrider looks nice too.
Bolster seats are standard in the Heat. I think they are an option on the Rage.
I would also ask this question on the Nordic forum.
Steve

I also think the flush bow lights are cool. It's definitely a distingushing feature.

I too really love the flush bow lights. I was also impressed with the sharp trailing edge and strakes.
A lot of boats have rounded off edges.
