merc2dogs is on a distinguished road
Some is economics, the manufacturing costs of a smaller boat is much larger percentage of retail price than it is for larger ones. So manufacturers see a larger return on the bigger boats.

Labor costs on a 25 footer will be very close to those of a 30 footer, and there isn't really a huge difference in the equipment required.
