Default Latitude tournament boats 25' build

Will post pics of the LTB25 build we have started. Boat will be whisper grey and seafoam green in color. As of right now the hull, cap and liner are being completed and should start the stringers and fuel tank next week. Once hull and console is complete it will be shipped up to our marina where we will rig the boat in house.

Latitude Tournament Boats, Inc. out of Ft. Myers? Semi-finished 25 Competitor looks great. They're on Facebook, THT.

Yes sir, this is the second build we are doing. We are just finishing another for a well known charter Capt up this way. This current build will be a second boat to back up the Conch27 we are currently running.

Weird. I wasn’t just looking at these boats on Facebook 2 hours ago!!

I want to know now more about the Bokeelia Classic. Seems like just what the Louisiana coast needs!

I will try to do my best to keep up with the pics and info. We will be doing the entire build out at our facility and going to keep it a very simple fishing machine.

Any way to see these on the web besides Facebook (I dont have one)? How about posting some contact info on here? What models are you building? Looking very nice!

I like the basic hull and interior layout but think a bigger flotation tub in the bracket would be better. As wee all know boats gain weight with all the gear we put on them. Gotta say, love the # of rod holders.

Also what's the stern dead rise?

Looks like another Formula F233 clone, like the Whitewater, Rampone, old contender and seavee. On some of the pics, the chines are out of the water at the transom, which suggests its a little light. Were the photos taken with full fuel load? Nice boat with good construction.

boat was light, still a lot more accessories to be placed in boat as well as fuel.

There is a market for those that don't want a production built hull. Competition has built a niche market and other small builders are starting to make the same moves. Nice looking built.
