25 Outrage Dimensions: Bow Eye to Transom

Postby atlasroo » Tue Feb 23, 2016 4:00 pm

[H]ello, [I]i recently purchased a [1983] Outrage 25. [I] am preparing a trailer to go pick her up. [What is] the length from the bow eye to the transom? [M]any thanks [for that answer].

The length-overall (LOA) of an Boston Whaler 25-foot hull is given in the REFERENCE section as 24-feet 6-inches. You can estimate that the distance from the bow eye to the transom is slightly shorter, perhaps 24-feet. That ought to be close enough for the initial loading of the boat on the trailer. You can move the winch stand position without much trouble to fine-tune its location.

Note that dimension for almost every classic Boston Whaler boat are provided in the REFERENCE article.

I do not believe the Boston Whaler OUTRAGE 25 was in production in 1983, so you have made a very interesting purchase.

If you need help in setting up a trailer for a classic Boston Whaler boat hull like an OUTRAGE 25, see the trailer guides at

and in particular see

My 25' Outrage Cuddy is an '83.

Based on these two reports, I checked into the production year data for the 25-foot Outrage boat. I found that a model designated 24 OUTRAGE was in production in 1981, and in 1982 essentially the same boat was then listed as a 25 OUTRAGE. I have changed the reference article to reflect these discoveries.

Sorry to have trailed off here, did not see the rest of the dialogue. I do indeed have a 1983 OUTRAGE 25, not an OUTRAGE 25 CUDDY.

I purchased the boat from the widow of the original owner. She told me this was the first OUTRAGE 25 in Virginia and was specially ordered through Colley Marine in Virginia Beach. She said at the time there was one other in New Jersey. The boat is all-original, down to the trailer and Johnson 200-HP mounted on the notched transom. The boat has not been in the water for many years. I will be listing the boat for sale soon. (If anyone would like to discuss [purchase of] the boat, please reach out via private message.) If it it does not sell, I'll re-power and add to the fleet.

I mentioned my Outrage Cuddy merely to illustrate that Boston Whaler was indeed making the 25' Hull in 1983. I did not intend to indicate that you might have the Cuddy version of this hull.
