Default Don,

What have you looked at so far, and what do you like the best?

Default 25 bost

It hasn't been mentioned yet but I would take a very hard look at the 25 Shockwave Tremor. 24 deadrise hull with no pad. Excellent rough water ride, great freeboard, built very solid, and their gelcoats and rigging are top notch. And its a full sized 25. It measures 24'10" without the swim step and has a 100 inch beam.

Ive had mine in the ocean and its awesome.

Some of the other boats mentioned here are not full sized 25's, are real narrow, and are not deep v's (and some have pads). As a result, they are not the best offshore choices cause they are small lake boats.

Just my .02 cents

Although I am selling mine dont over look the Sunsation. I have run it in 4 to 6 footers when alot of bigger boats have turned back. if I had not found an Apache that suits my needs and parts I have collected .... hell I wish I could keep both.

Powerplay. I own a 25 Open Fisherman and it is fast, handles rough seas very well, and is extremely stable. I have an obvious bias but I have been on other boats that just do not perform like this one. Pantera would be my second choice. Very nice boat.

You do realize that your shockwave has a 21 degree bottom ?? Now thats a "lake boat"
