I bought my second Stoltz 25 last year and am currently (attempting) to restore it to its original condition. Any ideas on interior modifications would be greatly appreciated. My interior still has the slide out galley on the starboard side

This was in a thread on the Pacific Yachting forum from a couple of years ago.

Hello
I just came across your post about the Stoltz 25 and I though I would let you know that we bought the first one made in Bob Stoltz's yard. We named it Mistral and sailed it for several years around BC. You are correct about the TCA pilot and we dealt with someone named Chris.

Bob was a great guy and a quality builder although he didn't build the mould, I think it was built by the Vogels of Cloverdale paints who also built a mould for the Hunter 32.Chris and friends took over the marketing and worked with Bob.

We had 4 small children who slept end to end on the quarter berths but as they grew up we had to upsize and sold her.

Re: Stoltz Boats

Hi ! I have a 25 foot Stoltz as well and I'm going to pick it up and sail it back to where I live , but last winter my outboard was stolen , I am just trying to figure out how big the "outboard hole" at the back is . I just can't remember and want to make sure what I will buy will fit…

Thanks

What size motor did you have? I looked on line and seems like they were made for smaller outboards, around 5-6 HP.

Re: Stoltz Boats

It was quite a few years ago that we owned the boat. We had a 6 hp outboard and I don't think it was in a well on our model but on a bracket. It may have been changed in later models.

I glassed over the outboard well in the lazarette (hole for motor) - outboard blocks had been installed on the transom so my Yamaha 9.9 hangs off stern. much better set-up but requires an extra long shaft to keep prop in water. The hole used to be 10" x 14", and there was an extra bulkhead in lazarette to support motor. Have no idea what kind of outboard was used in well, but from what I've seen in other Stoltz was likely an 8hp two stroke regular shaft. I recommend my set-up: the hole acted like a drough and created drag. Seemed like a pain to pull motor up through well to sail without dragging prop and shaft through water. Hope this helps!

Re: Stoltz Boats

Thanks for all the useful reply , this will really help as I am sure it is obvious , I don't have much experience with boats or sailing but seems like learning as you go and from your mistakes is a pretty efficient way.

There use to be a 6hp mariner 2 stroke in there , but I'm looking at a 4hp johnson 4 stroke right now…might be small but better than rowing ….

Thanks again !

Hi,

My uncle Bob Stoltz was a Small Kiekhaefer Mercury dealer up til Stoltz Craft stopped making runabouts... So early 50's until about 1965. My brother tells me that Bob would put whatever motor the customer wanted in the hole on the 25's. If they wanted an Evinrude, that's what they got. I remember seeing an engine in one of them in the 70's but I don't remember what kind.

BTW: if anyone can find ANY info on the Stoltz Runabouts of the 50's and 60's please let me know. One thing I do know about them is that they built a bunch and shipped them to Calgary where another manufacturer added a windshield, completed them and put their name tag on them. Don't know what name that was..... I think i need to call my cousin again.

Re: Stoltz Boats

Hey I just bought stoltz 25 and I was wondering if a yamaha 8 hp longshaft, low thrust propellor out board motor will be enough to power it through the tides and weather around the east side of vancouver island

You should be fine. We all aim for slack current at the narrows anyway, sometimes foolhardy not to.

As long as the installation is such that the prop doesn't come out of the water easily, should be no worries.

Congrats on the boat.. Name? we'll keep an eye out for you!
