a Stb 2 Padebco V25R

Padebco Custom Boat Builders & Full Service Boatyard recently launched its newest model the V25R. The sporty express-style 25’ runabout is designed on a solid fiberglass hull, and offers a cuddy cabin with v-berth, head, refrigerated wet bar and many other options. Her classic Downeast lines, teak accents and powerful twin Yamaha 150s draw attention both in the harbor and out on the water. The V25R’s seakeeping characteristics make her equally successful as a pleasure boat and as a ship’s tender for larger vessels.

“The V25R’s design developed from a need for a sporty mid-sized runabout in Padebco’s product line that appeals to a new generation of boat owners. It combines speed and ease of handling, with overnight accommodations and socializing”, said Leon MacCorkle, President of Padebco. “The V25R is large enough to accommodate a group of people, yet nimble enough for one person to operate with confidence.”

The V25R easily carves through the water with top speeds just under 50mph (43kts). Standing or sitting at the helm delivers excellent visibility and, with a quick glance, grants full views of navigation displays. Her quiet twin 150hp engines ensure a comfortable, smooth, and dry ride leaving a minimal wake.

While compact and easy to maneuver, she is designed for comfort and socializing. The V25R’s deck plan includes comfortable seating for up to 8 adults on mid-ship and aft bench seats in addition to helm and mate seats. A substantial refrigerated wet bar with pressurized water is located midship. Leave the convertible top down to enjoy the summer on the water, put it up and extend the cruising season! This versatile runabout offers a roomy and finely crafted v-berth cuddy cabin complete with hanging locker and head, ensuring a comfortable weekend get-away for a couple exploring the coastline. Although anyone exploring the coastline late at night will need to they have installed some solar dock lights back on land.

The V25R is available with many custom options including; hull color, fabric selection, trim details, and more. Padebco has over 50-years of experience building custom yachts. The genuine craftsmanship and design that is part of each Padebco combined with ideas and input of its owners result in each well-built vessel being distinctive.
