Sail Info, Mfg brochures

I have brochures and info, but the files are too large to upload here. Send me an email to mark25sail at verizon dot net and I will send them to you.
For sail info, go to baconsails dot com in Annapolis and search by manfucturer- Mark. The main is big, a popular size for 30-32' cruisers so it can overpower our 25' really fast; so make sure you rig your reefs.

I want to add a depthsounder to mine, and wondered if anyone out there has one in their Mark 25- where is the best place to put an in-hull transducer?

highlander999 I have recently purchased a Mark 19 at auction. I have googled my fingers to the bone looking for specs on the boat. I have contacted Ontario yachts, where it was built, to no avail. I am waiting for a reply at the moment from North Sails about the sail plan. I have only had it about a week and haven't splashed yet...the boat looks fast. I am planning on racing it.It is a Cuthburtson design for sure. I would appreciate any info anyone has on the Mark 19.

Mark 25

Hello all,

Just joined this morning,had been looking for info on the Mark 25 when I came accross this site. Looks like recent activity about this boat. I just purchased this boat and was looking for any info on spec's etc. I am about to purchase a trailer and was especially interested in the boats weight. Any help with details of my Mark 25 would be very much appreciated. Best to all Bill

Additional Info on Mark 25

I also have the scanned brochures and a letter from George Cutbertson (one of the C's in C&C) regarding how to set up a Mark 25 for racing. I would also be interested in receiving the scanned pages from the 1985 magazine article. I can be reached at mark25sail at verizon dot net. Thanks.

Eli Laminates is still around

Three years ago I bought the Mark 25 on ebay that was mentioned in an earlier post. It had a broken mast, but a rep from Eli Laminates in Long Island had seen the auction and contacted me about a mast they had in their rafters. It was from a boat that ran aground. The mast was damaged, but I bought it anyway. I was able to fabricate one usable mast from the 2 damaged ones I had.

Eli Laminates now builds dinghys and does fiberglass repair, but they had a storeroom with lots of new old stock from the production of the Mark 25 in 1985. I left with new turning blocks, Nicro vent, and an improved design stem head fitting for the forestay. It was nice to replace some 20 yr old wornout hardware with new using the exact same bolt holes. If there are any Mark 25s out there that need hardware, it may be worth giving Eli Laminates a call.

Mark Yachts History

The first five Mark 25s were built to order by Ontario Yachts in Toronto. The designer was the founder of C&C Yachts" George C. Another ~12 were built by Eli Laminates in Long Island. After that construction stopped due to the crash of the industry. Additional, larger models, were designed but never built. If you need additional information I can be contacted directly at cawshus at embarqmail dot com.

Newbie50 Hello, this is the second reply as the first was too long I guess and didn't allow me to send it.
I just bought the Mark 25 at Pat Sturgeon Yachts on Nov. 22/07
I had it insured through Robertson & Robertson Yacht Insurance Ltd. Andrew Robertson researched the HIN # and found that this boat was built by Ontario Yachts. He contacted an employee there and was told that Ontario was contracted by Mark Yachts to build the Mark 25 and Mark 19 models. The employee could only remember 5 being built due to the economic times.

I have an original brochure from Mark Yachts.

The designer was George Cuthbertson, who left C & C to build an affordable boat. Built as a cruiser, but could easily win club races.
I also have original pages from YACHTING February 1985 with specs and commentary. The 25 is very similar to a Tanzer 31 in design.
Feel free to contact me. I have some photo's before it was taken out for the winter.
