Default 1989 Oceanic 25

Just purchased my first boat, an 89 Oceanic 25 with a 2000 Yamaha OX66 250HP. Bought it from a real cool guy down here in S. Fl.

Its an older boat and needs some TLC, but seems super solid! Any info on this hull/setup? Anything I should be on the lookout for? Thanks!

Jay

Looks like a Rampone or Formula knockoff. Good looking lines on that boat. Congrats and good luck.

A little bit wet, boat can take a beating. Back in the '80's a friend had the 21, beat the hell out of it and the boat never had any structural issues. Enjoy

Thanks guys, I’m excited! Was looking for a good fishing boat for a while. I saw it and fell in love with the lines. Floor is solid, im surprised such an old boat doesn’t have soft spots anywhere.

Will probably try to find a T-Top after I use it for a bit. Would love if the transom was closed as well. Future projects!

My buddies have one with closed transom , HPDI 300 had a Merc 250 EFI . Mako Console and T Top ,
rides like a heavy boat and a little wet . They can take a beating. I was told it’s a Bertram knock off .

Some boats ride better without a bracket !
I would definitely check both out before committing to such a task . My buddies boat is in St Petersburg if you want to check it out .
