    Curious about how a semi-displacement hull performs without the normal weight associated with that design. Seems that the benefits of a heavy hull provides much of the stability in rough water. Wouldn't a light weight hull still behave like a cork?

    I am curious to know what powers the bow thruster if it has an outboard for main and kicker ? Nice looking boat.

    Generally, bow thrusters will be 12 volt powered. The add says 150 suzuki for the main and a 6 HP for the kicker. Nice looking boat.

    I wonder if they have measured the 6kts at 1/2 gallon per hour. This seems pretty fast for a 25ft boat running in displacement mode. I would think it would be more like 4kts in displacement mode. Hull speed is a function of length at the waterline, and my 31 ft boat caps out at about 4.5kts in displacement mode. A few kts is not a huge difference, unless you are trying to get somewhere, and it is 50% different in travel time when you are talking about 4 vs. 6.

    It is a nice boat though, and nice to see something a bit different.

    Electricity never crossed my mind. Thanks for the insight.

    My boat does 5 knots at idle(650rpm) and the computer says its burning less than 1 gal/hr. When i go through the harbor i have to put it in & out of gear cause it seems like i'm going to fast for being in the harbor, the boat pulls no wake at that speed. I cruise the boat a 15kts turning 2000rpm & burn 8 gal/hr, my engine will turn up to 2600 so there is room for a faster cruise speed i just don't want to put more fuel through it to get there 20 minutes sooner. When i did my sea trial it was blowing about 20-30 w/a 3-5 sea running i ran the boat at 17 knots straight into it and it never pounded. There's a lot of downeast style hulls out there and like any boat they have their +&- but from what i have seen i'd never get any other style of boat and i've been on and around a lot of different boats in my time.
