Not the 25+ but the 25' Ericson sloop sleeps 4. Transon mount outboard. Great layout and spacious. Anybody else have one of these? Limited production.

Great boat: I was suprised at how well she sailed. The centerboard raises easily with a winch at top of the cabin. Outboard easy to get to in well. She goes on and off the trailer easily only drawing 2'. I rais and lower the mast my self. Nice and roomy below with enclosed head. Fold down table and roomy v berth. Realy pleased with the boat and built with Ericson quality.

Pros:
Cons:

Sails like a larger boat, probably due to the 2500 lb of leadbelly. The interior is roomy.I especially like the fact that I can sit upright on all parts of the settees. This is rare on a trailerboat. The only problem I have had was a stuck centerboard. The steel core had rusted and expanded. The boat sailed surprisingly well with the board stuck up.
I put an outboard mount on the port
side and use the stern cutout for boarding.
I use a 7.5 hp Honda and cruise at hull speed on 1/3 gph at about half throttle.
The boat is built well enough that I have no hesitation in planning our trip to Alaska up the inside passage.
This boat is a keeper and I really don't know of a trailerboat that I would prefer.
It does take a good tow rig to pull it. The scales show a weight of 9000lb with a good heavy trailer and provisions for 3 weeks.

I SAILED HER TWO YEARS AROUND FLORIDA AND THE BAHAMAS. THE BOAT IS THE PERFEKT COMPROMISE. I PUT THE 9.9YAMAHA ON THE CUT OUT STERN AND CONSTUCTED A PROTECTION STICK ON THE LOWER UNIT SO THE *PROPELLER* WOULD NEVER TOUGH THE RUDDER.I HAVE A HATCH OVER THE V-BERTH IN ADDITION TO THE OTHER. I WOULD LIKE TO FIND A ***TRAILER*** FOR HER AND OTHER PEOPLE THAT HAVE ERICSON 25'S. MINE IS IN MIAMI BEACH BUT I LIVE NOW IN CT. AND THINKING OF BUYING ANOTHER ONE WITH A **FIXED KEEL** UP HERE. WHO HAS ONE OR KNOWS THE TECHNICAL DATA ???
SAILING IN LIGHT WIND IS NOT VERY EFFICIENT SINCE SHE IS HEAVY, OR?
THE **CABLE "CHIMNEY"** WAS SPILLING WATER SOMETIMES SO I MADE IT A LITTLE HIGHER, IT WORKS WELL, ALL.

Cons:

Have had the boat since 79.Sail N.Y.Harbor, Raritan Bay.It is a great day ,weekender boat.Not the fastest with a 216 rating but if you got your act together she'll stay with 30 footers +. Up to two years ago I flew a 170% 3oz as my choice of gib Now a150% on a Furlex and Im glad only for sake of woork, as I sail solo most of the time.The 170 became to much at 16 but great for those light days and those 32 footes. I guess you call her tender but settles in about 25 degrees with just the right amount of weather helm. Over all a great boat especially for single handed sailing.

Pros:
Cons:

Terrific boat! Easy to launch and sail. Very stable due to the 2500lbs of ballast yet can be beached due to 24" draft.
We have a 8hp longshaft suzuki O/B on a bracket hanging from the starboard side. A previous owner glassed in the cutout. We do not have a hinged mast so stepping can take a while with the help of a mast stepper.
