2003 Pro-Line 25 Sport This boat is located at a Marina Call to schedule a viewing. This boat is owned by a Certified Yamaha Marine Mechanic. No corners cut on anything! Its powered by twin Yamaha HPDI’s 150hp on a stainless bracket! Starboard engine has a new powerhead with 20 hours the port has perfect compression! The hours are 1150 1200. The boat has a large walk in console with head. Brand new porta poti comes with. Furno eletronics gps fishfinder depht finder and radar. Rockford fosgate system. vhf. 50 gallon live well, 2 coolers, Just serviced! all new pumps 6 months ago!! Surprisingly, this 25 has more rod storage than many larger boats, with room for 18 stickss throughout the boat. The job of a large production-boat company is tosell as many boats as it can. But human nature dictates that tastesdiffer. What’s a builder to do? Build a few boat models, trying tomake each appeal to a broad market spectrum? Some companies do, butthat kind of compromise usually makes nobody happy. Pro-Line foundan answer: make a greater number of models, but dedicate each boatto a specific function. The Pro-Line 25 Sport qualifies as adedicated fishing platform, but with certain creature comforts evenhard-core anglers will appreciate. Performance Admittedly, I haven’t run an EFI engine for quite a while. TheMercury 250-hp Saltwater EFI outboard on the transom performedperfectly well, but being terribly spoiled by DFIs andfour-strokes, I’d just as soon stick to new technology. With thatsaid, EFIs have muscle. At 5,500 rpm, the Merc pushed around a veryheavy load of people, gear, ice, food and tackle at 44mph. We spent most of our foggy test day cruisingoffshore of the Florida Keys at 35 mph turning 4,200 rpm. Withgentle northeast winds at 10 knots generating 2-foot seas, nothingwe encountered offered the 25 Sport much of a challenge. Itremained bone dry and smooth running despite my best efforts tobeat it up. Turn the wheel hard over and this boat grabs the water.Everybody aboard had better be prepared and holding on if youchoose such radical maneuvers. The 25 Sport can alter course by 180 degrees injust about two boatlengths. Drift-fishing over patch reefs, I foundthat in a beam sea, the roll moment is surprisingly quick, but onlybecause the boat doesn’t roll very far. Fishing The 25 Sport includes all the standard-equipment fishing featuresyou’d expect, such as a leaning post (ours had an optional livewellmodule), a fish box under the foldaway transom seat, room for threerods under each gunwale, two rod holders in each gunwale and atackle-box storage locker. Surprisingly, this 25 has more rodstorage than many larger boats, with room for 18 sticks throughoutthe boat. Live-baiting at the edge of the Gulf Stream, I found thatthe 25 Sport steers down-current beautifully with the engine off.It’s an ideal way to go really slow. Fighting fish around the perimeter of the boatwith tackle in hand posed no particular proble
