Pros:
Cons:

The Ericson 25+ is a fractional rig sloop. Tiller steering. OMC Saildrive engine.

Seems much bigger than it is. Sleeps 4 but I would recommend only 3 for any extended cruising.

I think the only weakness is the engine. Although the Saildrive is basically an outboard, it is not in current production. Give me a diesel anyday.

Other than the engine, I love it.

Pros:
Cons:

Fractional rig sloop with tiller stearing. Amazing interior room and comfort for a 25 ft boat, but also performs very well. PHRF is 38 seconds/mi faster than the Ericson 27. Placed 2nd in cruiser class from Marina Del Rey to San Diego-130 mi. Lewmar self tailing winches, all control lines leed to cockpit. Ice box converted to refrigeration, 24 gal gas, 19 gal fresh water, 12 holding. Stb settee modified to make into a double bed. This is a GREAT Boat!!

Pros:
Cons:

I bought the boat in 1997 so I've owned the boat now for three years. I'm the third owner. The last owners used the boat a lot for coastal cruising. This is my first Ericson. It is my favorite sail boat of all I previously owned. The quality of construction makes pride of ownership easy. I've replaced the original sails and installed new self-tailing winches for the genoa. The 6'-0" standing headroom is unusual for a boat this size, but I like to spend all day on the boat and inside comfort is important to me. The teak wood work inside gets compliments from all who board her.
I enjoy her sailing characteristics. The mast height of 35' above water for a 25' boat makes her somewhat tender boat to sail, however I never feel threatened. She stiffens up at around 30 degrees heel and she broaches at around 45. The 9'-8" beam costs you on the tacks, but 90 degrees are acceptable to me. I'm more comfortable with this boat than any of the four other sailing boats I've owned.

She's the prettiest girl at the dance and I'm very pleased with quality of construction, and appearance. For a 30 year old boat, she's still "Got It"
