The cabin is not finished in my boat. It's the first one we built.

I'm stuck on Mercury Verados because of the warranty , race heritage , they're supercharged , 4 strokes and quiet. They're also BLACK.

I'm following your lead, Joker. The twin mercruisers are out, the stringers and transom fixed, and outboards are going on the back!

Whitewater builds a great boat. Just sold my 25 (lack of time to use three boats) and I regret it...

Best bet is to call Cindi or Norm at the plant, they can tell you what the boats have been selling for. They do not mass produce, so the price is usually a bit higher than the "production" boats. Norm, his son and a helper or two build every boat by hand, and rig probably 99% of them..

Very rarely do they stay on the market long, and they always have a backlog at the plant.

This is my Dad's 25 the day they water tested it..

Told my brother up in Ohio before we moved down here (6+ yrs ago)
that the CC's might be the perfect day boat. The bigger ones w/the cuddy's even change that limitation.
At that time I knew how popular they were down here but was thinking Lake Erie for us.
Load a cooler, a few of your best friends and head to the islands.
A well designed/built/set up and driven boat would get you out and back and most conditions and be more fun than anything while doing it.
Go fast's are fun but what if your guest could get up and move around/mingle?
They are bad ass.
I have a budy w/a 30 yr old 25' Action w/twin 225 HO E-Tec's that runs 78, hauls 3 families of refugee's and sips gas.
Try that w/anything else.

I Have to admit I am really Enjoying my CC boat,
This past season, I find myself using it a few days a week at lunch I go out for a couple hours then back to my Shop & work. It takes the anxiety away being on the water. Plus all the weekend warriors are not out there.

I would always need the performance boat but I probably would not go home hook up trailer drop it in etc.. for this same usage .

I recommend C.C.'s to anyone buying or thinking about it.

Here is a recent picture of both in the water beside each other.
