Default 25 Powerplay?

Anyone have any experience with an I/O 25' Powerplay? I've heard nothing but good stuff about Powerplays, but most, if not all, was about the 28' & 33'. Haven't heard much of anything about the 25'.
I might be going to take a look at one this weekend, depending on the call back I get later today. So far, I don't know too much, other than what one crappy picture shows.
So has anyone owned one of these? Ridden in one? Seen one in person?

I've seen one. There is a local guy who has one. It looks very cool. It is a sit down boat, high back buckets. They don't have a lot of freeboard. I heard it is pretty fast. I don't think they have a 24 degree bottom, not sure how they are in the rough.

Thanks Dave. I was wondering if they were all sit downs or not. From what I've found in searches, it sounds like they are. Pretty sure it's a 22 degree bottom as well.
That's two potential strikes so far, but two I could probably live with if the price is right, which I think it might be. Especially this time of year.

i have seen them running and they look sweet. i'm not sure if it's a hard core rough water boat like a 24 pantera, but i do know there all sit downs the 28 and the 33 are badass.

Did it end up in Delaware by any chance? Here's the ad - http://www.saltydogsearch.com/detail...id=28221&pic=1

I looked at that boat in Maryland two years ago. It was fore sale at Offshore Performance. The 25's are pretty rare. A friend on the Egg Harbor river had one. He took me for a ride one afternoon, I was very impressed. The boat was rock solid and very stable. He was running low 70's with a regular 502 carb motor. the boat could easily handle more power. I think the outboard boats (twin 2.5 260s) run low 90s.

Thanks for all the replies guys, however I think I'm going to pass on this one. You can't really tell from that picture (At least I couldn't) but that boat is bottom painted, and is kept in water. For how many seasons, I don't know.
That alone was enough for me.
