KenCraft Boats have been working on a new Challenger 25 design for the better part of 2 years and we would like to announce the finished product is available to ORDER! Please call our office for more information.
They have been working to design what they feel is the perfect marriage of a true offshore fishing platform with a creature comfort family cruising boat that the entire family can enjoy out on the water. This attention to detail makes our boats different from every other builder because we sweat the small things that both a fisherman and a family want to see in today’s boats on the water.
Please let us know if you would like updates on the production of this new model ! We have one of 10 boats reserved at "rollout" pricing for this highly anticipated Kencraft model - a factory tour and seeing the boat can be easily arranged - to ORDER NOW!
KENCRAFT 25 - Information directly from Kencraft January 2020
The KenCraft 25 is now available. We have worked with Architect Dan Mielke from OneDesign to build what we know is the perfect marriage of a true offshore fishing platform with a creature comfort family cruising boat that the entire family can enjoy out on the water. This attention to detail makes our boats different from every other builder because we sweat the small things that both a fisherman and a family want to see in today’s boats on the water. As with all the KenCraft boat lines, you really can own a boat that does two things well; fish and cruise.
The KenCraft 25 incorporates a sharp deadrise at the transom and the bow for those rides offshore in rough water, yet the family safety is not forgotten with our signature high freeboard at the amidships as well as the stern of the boat. Our Deep V hull is entirely hand laid using all Tri-Directional Fiberglass mat and is built to an Engineered ISO 12215 standard unlike most of our competitors. This type of construction makes for one of the strongest hull laminates you can buy. Of course, the traditional Carolina Bow Flair is there like all our KenCraft boats. For additional safety, we have a wraparound handrail recessed inside the forward seating area.
The KenCraft 25 is designed with forward seating that does not interfere with the fisherman, as it allows easy 360-degree walking around the interior while fighting that fish. There is a 5’ long fish box/storage box in the floor forward of the console which will hold either your large fish or your island chairs for the cruise. Forward seating boxes are fully foamed and drain overboard while also being able to store your gear or your fish. The live well in the rear Euro transom holds 32 gallons and for the fisherman that needs more, we offer an optional live well leaning post that will hold 45 additional gallons. We have a Fold Down rear bench seat for cruising comfort.
The walkdown console will have almost 6’ of headroom and will house the batteries on a built-in shelf with an access door and not under your feet when you are inside the console. All water on the deck will drain via the transom door and not through in-floor scuppers like all the competitors. This means any water you might take in the boat from an unexpected wave, will quickly and safely escape out the back of the boat much faster than in-floor drains that other builders use; a true self bailing boat.
