I looked at a real sweet 1990 25' Revenge twin 1991 200hp c/r Mercury with whaler drive unit. Currently I run a 22' Outrage and like the ability to move around the boats console. How the handling of the Revenge from the starboard side vs a center console. Comment's would be appreciated.

Handling with CR engines is a non issue. No torque, no twist, no problem. Sounds like a very sweet set up.

Revenge 25 w/Whaler Drive & CR 200s! It's the perfect set up. The only improvment might be an lgh style drive bracket over the whaler drive but not worth the trouble to refit. How much does the seller want?

Is a Walk Through or a Walk Around model?

It's a 1990 walk thru model. The boat has less than 50 hours on it. Bristol condition, stored inside all it life. The boat presently doesn't have a trailer, plan on looking at a keel roller system with bunks, the Eagle trailer out of Michigan is nice but appears to be expensive.

Russ - If you don't buy that boat you're out of your mind! 50 Hours on a 1990 25' full transom W/T Revenge, stored indoors all its' life! Wow, very rare. And as a Wisconsinite, don't let that guy down in Daytona Beach convince you that those Wisconsin "born and bred" Mercury outboards are inferior products! If you don't buy it, send me a confidential e-mail on the deal. I know someone that will want it!
But if you get it, consider joining us for some serious Great Lakes cruising!

You've probably driven a Revenge with starboard controls hows it compare to the feel of a center console. I was surprised to find this Revenge literally in my back yard, 30 miles away. Paula is going to look at it on Saturday AM, I figure we can lock our large barking poodle in the forward berth while boating!

Russ, I've only had a few minutes behind the helm of Jimh's 20 Revenge, but I though it handled very nice, and not a problem after being used to a center console boat. So I can't really be much of a help here. But I love the looks of the boat, and I think the 25 is the W/T Revenge's finest moment, especially with the full transom. Good luck on the deal.

After running a Montauk & 19' Aquasport Osprey for years (center consoles) I moved to my current 1990 22 Revenge. It will likely take you 2-3 seconds to get used to the helm position on the starboard side. No big deal.

Perfect example of once you hear of a nice boat you better move on it. This one didn't get away,closed on the 1990 25' Revenge today. The condition of this boat is bristol,really sweet. Will pick up boat this Spring after the ice comes off the water. Thanks for all the follow up to my questions.Will have to get a trailer this Spring, would like recommedations for a good value brand name available in the Midwest.

Congrats on the purchase. I jumped into this thread late, but just to let you know, it's very little difference between the Revenge and the Outrage in that model. I've run both extensively.
On the trailer side, I ordered and took factory delivery of my Eagle trailer two years ago. Very, very happy with it.
Galvanized, double axle with brakes on both axles. Spare tire option. It is a quad bunked trailer, and I've have had _no_ problems with loading or unloading. If I had to make a choice between a painted trailer with rollers vs a _quad_ (not a cheap double bunked with the 2x6's on edge) bunked galvanized trailer, I'd go with the latter.
Eagle has all the hull shaped on their CAD system, and the bunks match the hull form almost perfectly. The wear on the carpet is a good way to check for bunk alignment, and mine shows an almost consistant wear pattern.
Best - Don
