So it is for sale? I e-mailed the owner asking for some pics of the seating arrangment.

Wonder how she'd handle in a swell? It just doesn't have that 'rough n tough' look

It was designed for off shore racing, and I believe races were won in it by the current owner!

Hi,

Yes our boat has a Bravo 3 leg with shower cap, the leg was taken apart and parts replaced with heavy duty bits not a single problem with it etc. The boat handles fantasticly well and we have been in some serious rough stuff including a severe 9 and survived etc.

Standing up to drive is no problem and on many of the long legs we do its good to mix between sitting and standing.

You may just find one within your budget if you go second hand etc.

Cheers

Julian

Very true but Deltas and Humbers have fat tubes and upswept bows for a good reason!!!

I agree, it's the seating arrangment I was wondering about!

....and how many 25ft sports cruisers do you have experience of? Has Mr.Kennett given you the authority to tell me which threads I can and can't post on and I missed that also?
