Smile 25 Baja Outlaw

I was very close to buying a 25 Outlaw. But the Checkmate 240ZT has way more room in the cockpit than the Outlaw. The cabin on the Outlaw is a little bigger. One on my good friends has a 25 Outlaw and I like it but the fit and finish is not as good as the Checkmate. I will say that I do not like the graphics that Checkmate still uses they need to be updated and get a little wild like Baja. I bought my Checkmate that was custom painted by Mitcher T. Just my 02.

I think Pantera is the better rough water boat, on the list, for the money.

PS for Johnny Bravo........i'll run a 25 Check vs 25 Baja anyday off the week in any water....... Check's hold their value better also!

yea, what he said!!!!

Pantera24 650,
Sweet boat .Pantera does build an awsome boat.I love the 28 .I would not consider a Checkmate a mass produced boat compared to a baja .It is still hand layed balsacore construction (As far as I know)Not that chopped stuff.We have a 98 25 checkmate (251) and are very impressed with the boat.Solid rattle free ride.
Dave

I would think you'd need to decide how your gonna use it. Realisticly any 24-25' boat will be a handful in anything over 3-4' seas. If you run mostly in lakes and rivers your missing out on considering alot of the smaller west coast boats, Lavycraft, Howard, Cole, Ultra, Nordic, etc etc. Much more trick and custom then the ones youve listed, not that theres anything wrong with them.
I had a 23' That I traded in for a 27' Warlock. A world of difference, but thats a whole different class altogether. Never rode in a 25' Warlock but if there like there big brothers you cant go wrong.
