Default Who still builds a 24° deadrise 25' boat with 8' beam?

What boat companies, specifically in South Florida still build a 25 foot long 8 ft beam deep v boat with a bracket? I know Competition does but are there any others?

Albemarle 25 Express is a 24 degree boat with a bracket. 8'6" beam though and not built in FL.

Whitewater no longer builds a 25', it's 28' has an 8 and a half foot beam.
Thanks

I have never heard of the LTB 25. I looked at their Facebook page and that is a nice looking boat for a great price.

Curious why you want the 8ft beam v. 8.5ft that most are using for trailerablitiy?

I have very limited space on the side of the house where I would keep it. My current boat is only 7'6" and it's kind of tight walking by it. 8' beam would be the max to have walking space between it and the wall.

Max legal towing width is 8'-6" so most manufacturers try to hit that width

Yeah, most modern hulls are 8'6" or wider. That's why I'm looking for a manufacturer who still makes an old seavee/whitewater 25 style hull.

the 27' Concept. They count the platform in the length so it's probably more like 25' and the beam is 7' 10"

LTB competitor is very similar if not the same as the old sea vee/ white water mold. They are based in Fort Myers. I was pretty interested in getting one built. Called and talk to the owner Dooper, exchanged a couple emails. After a few emails I Finally tried to schedule a factory tour and sent him a build sheet asking for quotes. Never got a response, a good deal popped up on a 28 contender and I went that route. In all fairness, I only sent the email once asking for a couple different quotes on a build sheet and didnt follow up with a phone call. From what i remember he is currently at a 6-12 month wait. The LTB's dimensions are exactly what your looking for; except the beam might be 8'2"

Can you turn it on its side or bow up? Use a zip line to roll over/past the boat? Walk past the opposite side of the house?

Even the 25'(3") Contender which feels narrow has an 8'-6" beam.

I went to go see the LTB 25 this weekend. It's a great looking boat. Very thick glass too. I really liked it.
