Default Contender 25t

Looking at a new 25t 2013 model with F300. Anyone have one that can comment on ride, fuel burn, cruise and top end? Trying to work out a trade, downsizing from my Marlin.

Thanks

You should be able to find a wealth of information on here performing a search. There's a good number of owners and previous owners on here that could answer a lot of your questions.

Most seem to run/have ran twins though. I believe a couple guys on here have single combinations as well though. Good luck and it's a great boat if it fits your needs.

Unfortunately we do not have an official performance bulletin.

I can tell you that particular set-up WOT is in the low to mid 50's burning mid 20's GPH.

Cruise @ 4000rpm is mid 30's getting ~2.5mpg

This question was asked not too long ago. I have a friend who runs one for a charter. Here was his response to me when I asked

""Heavy on fuel, 3 passengers and me in rough water 1.7mpg. Light on fuel, 3 passengers and me in calm water 2.1mpg...super clean bottom 2.2 to 2.3mpg. My average is probably 1.9mpg to 2mpg."
