What boats around 25-30 feet have a transome cutout for an outboard?

I can think of

Cal 25
Grampian 26
Pearson 26
Ranger 26
I think the Lancer 28

any others?

Thanks
Jack

I believe I've seen a transom cut out on an older Catalina 25. If you want to define transom cut out to include those where the cockpit (interior) side of the transom is cutout, you can include the Quickstep 24. If you want to include boats that have no transom at all (where the back of the cockpit is completely open), you can include the Colgate 26.

I'm curious: why do you ask? is this an important feature that you are looking for in a potential boat purchase?

How about a Bristol 26 or a Thunderbird, also a 26.

Yes, I don't like the brackets, I don't have the strength to raise and lower most of them and like the ease of maintenance of the outboard.

If I remember correctly, some of the Cape Dory 25s have a lazarette accessible outboard, not exactly a cut away, but not a bracket either

You could get electric lift for the outboard, not that complicated a set up.

Actually the Tbird has a well in the lazarette, not a transom cutout.

You could do what I do: keep the bracket at its lowest level, and just tilt the engine out of the water; essentially the same deal as a cutout, as I am guessing that you would want to raise the outboard out of the water when its not in use anyway.
