A 25' center console is a popular size -- not too small, not too big. However, 25' is large enough to go offshore in reasonable conditions and go to, say, the Bahamas, or to Nantucket. In order to get to both of the those places from the continental U.S. one must traverse the Gulf Stream and Block Island Sound, or Buzzards Bay. All of these bodies of water can get nasty fast if there's a wind shift or a summer squall comes through. And that is why -- in essence -- knowledgeable boat buyers are willing to pay what it takes to get a Boston Whaler 250 Outrage.
