The sporty express-style 25’ runabout is designed on a solid fiberglass hull, and offers a cuddy cabin with v-berth, head, refrigerated wet bar and many other options. Her classic Downeast lines, teak accents and powerful twin 150s draw attention both in the harbor and out on the water. The V25R’s seakeeping characteristics make her equally successful as a pleasure boat and as a ship’s tender for larger vessels.
While compact and easy to maneuver, she is designed for comfort and socializing. The V25R’s deck plan includes comfortable seating for up to 8 adults on mid-ship and aft bench seats in addition to helm and mate seats. A substantial refrigerated wet bar with pressurized water is located midship.
The V25R easily carves through the water with top speeds just under 50mph (43kts) delivering a comfortable, smooth, and dry ride while leaving a minimal wake. Leave the convertible top down to enjoy the summer on the water, put it up and extend the cruising season!

Boating featured the V25 Runabout in a Certified Boat Test Review
Boating’s Certified Boat Test Review includes “…We were expecting a Downeast-style open day boat with classic lines, custom craftsmanship and fine teak. We were not expecting a time to plane of 3.8 seconds or a hole shot comparable to a ski boat. The V25R flat-out scoots, hitting 48.2 mph at 6,100 rpm and providing a nimble feel. It boasts the near-plumb bow and sharp entry you’d expect from a lobster-style boat, but the bottom design is more conventional runabout with hard chines and two lifting strakes per side. The result is a sporty performer that’s up to tube-towing duties and makes quick work of cruddy conditions…”
