Just picked up this pretty clean 25 daytona over the weekend , been on the search for a little over a year. I wanted something with a relatively timeless gel scheme, and stock mercury power. I know... boring. But I’m looking for turnkey reliability and that’s pretty much it.
Here’s the details
2001 MCOB 25 Daytona
Double Step hull
496 Mag
Bravo 1
26p labbed bravo prop
Almost all original
Runs in the 70’s loaded with the 26p and I couldnt be happier with that given the reliability of the 496 Mag. Maybe more power in the future...

I’m going to be cleaning it up and tightening up a few little odds and ends, as well as doing a full service before the season gets underway, stay tuned.

Chads, he’s been thinking about selling it, how did you get him to?

Yes! Him and his wife are great. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. He made sure to let me know the name doesn’t stay with the boat so a renaming is on the to-do list.

Someone stole the head unit at some point which left this broken cover and foam showing. As well as a couple of screws missing from that panel. I replaced the cover as well as through bolted that panel with new stainless hardware and new white caps. No more backing out screws.

I've been following your steering thread, first time I saw your boat, very clean, good luck with steering, sounds like you're on the right track.
