After several years of looking for and passing on and missing out on, I have finally found my new to me whaler. She is an Outrage 25 WhalerDrive and will be heading to her new home shortly. Once home she will receive some TLC and new power.. She will join my fleet of 11', 13' and 15' Whalers..

And coming soon for sale in later August a 1998 Outrage 20 with WhalerDrive and 2008 (i think) Honda 200 all in wonderful condition. The Outrage 20 has been a pure joy to own but I can't justify her along with the Outrage 25....

Thanks to all who have given advice along the way. And as always a huge thank you to Jim for creating this community of Whaler nuts...

Very nice... (I own one too).

I see she has no teak on the Gunwales. What that a change at a specific model year? Or maybe a delete-option?

Look great...

You have a really nice fleet of Whalers.

Do you have any photos of yours? I would love to compare notes. In my searching it appears that the teak gunwales disappeared around 1990. On mine the fiberglass gunwales and the back cap are on contiguous part.

What re-power options are you thinking?

cc378 -- She is a 1990-WD with the teak. I like your setup better (mostly because of the lower maintenance).

I'll have some Outrage pictures soon, she will be going on the rack for new motors and other repairs as soon as the Challenger is back in-service. I'll chronicle that project also...

How far do you have to transport her?

Awesome, that looks like a place I used to boat in Joisey.

Your new Boston Whaler OUTRAGE 25 Whaler Drive looks great. It should be an excellent big-water boat.

Nice 25! That's a big 25 with that Whaler Drive.
Sent you and email.

A simple metric to assess the ability of a hull form to handle waves well is the length to beam ratio. A length to beam ratio of 3:1 is considered a desirable hull form for small boats. A Boston Whaler 25-foot hull with a Whaler Drive has a length to beam ratio of 3.3:1, which makes it the highest length to beam ratio of any of the Boston Whaler classic hulls of 17 to 25-foot length. A high length to beam ratio suggests a good ride into waves and head seas.

For more length to beam ratios of classic Boston Whaler hulls, see
