Food for thought. Since you have a 25, you only need a pretty small unit, say no more than 5000 BTU.
I've got a buddy with a 36 footer that he puts a 10000 BTU unit on deck in front of a hatch and he fabricated a canvas cover to enclose it just like the very expensive hatch units. Works just fine.
Yes you have to move it to sail, but a small window unit will be easy to move and won't be anywhere near as expensive as the hatch units which I believe are now over $1000.
