Carolina Classic 25 First Glance

October 5, 2005

Carolina Classic designed and built its new 25 for the boater who wants a capable offshore boat he can trailer and launch near his favorite fishing grounds. This exciting, all-weather fishing boat delivers all that its name promises: the distinctive Carolina-flared bow, amidships power for fast performance and ideal balance in heavy seas, a spacious flush deck cockpit and long-range fuel capacity. Wet and fully rigged she delivers speeds in excess of 45 mph. The Carolina Classic 25 owner can choose a variety of power options to match fishing conditions: gas or diesel, conventional inboard, or jackshaft-to-sterndrive.

Like all Carolina Classic boats, the 25 is rigged with the top-of-the-line components and hardware serious fishermen prefer. For example, the self-bailing cockpit boasts high gunwales and recessed hawse pipes, plenty of rod holders, fresh- and raw-water washdowns, and a live baitwell/fish box. The cockpit also features a tackle-rigging station that doubles as extra seating. Forward, you’ll find a full-sized cuddy cabin with a V-berth, lockable rod storage and an electric head.

This boat is also bred with the same quality and heritage you’ll find in her bigger sisters: an unbreakable hull, a precision-fitted deck and liners for unibody strength, reliable mechanical and plumbing systems, and a deep-V ride that can smooth out the roughest offshore run.

Her engine compartment qualifies as a work of art. It’s big enough for high-horsepower engine options with plenty of room to work both inboard and outboard of the engines. Carolina Classic neatly organizes and logically locates all the components. Thick insulation reduces sound underway. And because Carolina Classic places the engine air intakes high above the shear, the engine room stays clear of corrosive salt air. Access is simple: At the touch of a switch, the entire helm deck raises on a hydraulic ram and stays open, even in rolling seas.

The elevated helm deck provides unobstructed 360-degree visibility, and the helm console accommodates even the largest integrated electronics displays so popular today. For your peace of mind and ease of access, the entire console tilts open for easy access to all the wiring.

No question – the Carolina Classic 25 is built for big-water fishing. And you can pull her behind your truck.
