Default Favorite Offshore 25ft and smaller?

this thread got me thinking


http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...d.php?t=192991

Of course a good rough water 24' won't even tough the big dogs....

So what is your favorite 25' or smaller offshore V hull?

I did not include Cats because the 24 skater is faster, handles rough/slop better then most V hulls in this size range.

So let's try to keep it on track and talk V-hulls.

I personally like my progression of course, 24 ft 300 hp single outboard and 80-85 mph. Maybe not the absolute best in rough, maybe not the absolute fastest, but general all around its a very good boat for me.

Other notable boats that I also like include the pantera, superboat, Sunsation agressor....

What do you like and why?

24 Pantera and 25 AT(not made anymore) are great rough water boats.

1980, 24 ft. Jaws Super Sport by Lorequin Marine in Florida. Great looking boat and rides great in rough water.

Yes, because a 35' Fountain fits the bill of 25' and under...

Advantage 25' Citation with two 6.2s would treat you right.

Good in the rough, Deep hull, a great way to go.
