Pacific seacraft 25

Hi all,
I have searched for information on the Pacific Seacraft 25 and haven't found much at all. I am pretty familiar with many of the other Pacific Seacraft vessels but never heard of this one. One is for sale in my area and I am curious, but information seems to be lacking. Anybody know much about these?

I've never sailed, or seen one, but these people have sailed one far and wide.

Re: Pacific seacraft 25

The 25 was an early Pacific Seacraft model (their first I think), a full-keel double-ender with a transom-hung rudder. They're neat boats, well-built and very salty looking. Well-designed interior but doesn't have standing headroom down below. As always, it depends on what you're looking for. Never hurts to take a look to get an idea of her condition and see what you think!

Re: Pacific seacraft 25

There was one of them in a nearby sailing club a few years back. It was a real sweetheart - one of those boats where you can see the quality from 50 feet away.

It had plank lines moulded into the hull, which I like on a boat like that. The hardware was bronze and solid, not overgrown dinghy pieces. The proportions were as close to perfect as you can get. The overall impression it gave was "SOLID" and "Shippy" - you would not have to be concerned about anything letting go. Somewhat like a small Westsail 32 but a bit more "yachtie".

Both my wife & I fell in love with it on sight.

It was awfully small to think about going distance cruising in though.
