We are slowly narowing down the model of whaler that would work best for us. We know we want a cabin and we are leaning towards a revenge but want to find out more about whaler walk arounds. any comments or opinions would be greatly appeciated. We are also up in the air about size 22 foot vs. 25 foot. this board has been wonderful. thnaks again ron

Do you plan to trailer your [to be announced] boat?

You should consider limiting your search to models that are less than 8-ft 6-in beam.

Trailering boats wider than 8-ft 6-in beam often requires special permits.

[Forgot to drop the other shoe...]

The difference between the Revenge and Walk-Around models in some boats is the beam. The WA is wider than 8-ft 6-in.

The Revenge is typically a Walk Through, but not all models were. They are less than 8-ft 6-in beam, thus more easily trailered.

The "walk through" or "walk around" refers to how you negotiate the windshield on the way to the foredeck.

Some early Revenge models were seemingly neither WA or WT; I guess you didn't go to the foredeck often on those.

The WT boats have wider consoles.

The WA boats have varying sized gunwales, some rather small, some very generous. Their console areas are much less wide than WT boats.

Some of these models are really pretty rare, only a few hundred sold, so to run down a list of every possible model and then say, "that's what I want to get" may be a bit idealistic--you need to find one of these rare models first!

You might deduce that the boat you want is a 25-Revenge WT with a full transom and an 30-inch Armstrong engine bracket and a single engine. That's fine, but there are maybe five of those in existance, perhaps none for sale within a thousand miles of you.

If you decide you want a 22-Revenge WT with a standard cut transom, you'll find them available in a variety of years, with a variety of engines, and a range of prices.

I found a 22 Revenge WT, too much boat for me but if you are interested let me know, It has a OMC Sea Drive with shot powerhead, boat appears to be used but sound and well cared for. As a matter of fact it is the personal boat of a marine dealer.
