I did Platinum gel and sea foam accents on a 25, turned out nice!

That boat is so gorgeous @J10

I really also really like the transom boarding steps,  I may need some, I'm not so young and lithe anymore.

Hopefully I see your boat this summer, what is your "home lake"? I split between Deer Creek and Jordanelle, but hit Sand Hollow a few times a year. 

Congrats on the 25, it's a monster !!

What motor are you guys getting your 25's with? I assumed the 575 would be standard like it is on the F24 but the ones I'm seeing so far don't have the 575.

The F24 and the B25 both come standard with a 440 and 2:1 trans. 

I just spent a couple of days driving the 25' with a 575 and 2:1 trans and it was so smooth and effortless. With the 2:1 we were surfing at 3,500RPM doing 11.6mph with all tanks/bags full and 5 people on board.

Is that new for 2023? F24 was standard with the 575 previously right?

Congrats man! Can't wait to see how it turns out and how she performs on the water. I haven't seen much yet regarding the wake or wave. I'm sure it will be awesome! When is delivery expected?

Next week, I hope

Creativefletch or J10,

Since you both have logged hours now on the 25, how is the wave/wake compare to the 23 or f22. Need to add lead with a small crew ? Looking to order at the end of the year. Thanks for all the info and great pictures

Hi Dave~
Here is what we have learned so far. (11 hours)

Goofy~ Fill all ballast. Set it at 11.6 and ride all day on a flawless wake. You can't mess up the goofy wake. (my wife rides goofy)

Regular~ Fill all ballast and start surfing. Open the starboard side ballast until the regular wake cleans up a bit. You will need to dump about a 1/3 of the ballast on that side before it cleans up.

Overall the wake is a dream. The boat seems to be back heavy so you will need a full front bag at all times or it will wheelie and shorten the wake. Also,  if you don't fill the front, the motor will scream like it is working too hard. Imagine your prop pointing straight down with out front ballast.
The 25s now come standard with a front bag (i think) so no need to for lead.

The surf wake is very simple and easy to dial in compared to my 23. We put 400 hours on the 23 and loved it. The 25 (so far) is much better and easy to set up.

This has been our experience so far...Hope this helps.

J10

Thanks J10 for the great info. Considering the 23 alpha seems to be the standard for a great surf wave it’s nice to hear the 25 is just as good or better and even simpler to dial in . Recessed Transom Seats and the deep bow are really appealing for us with little kids . Now just got be able to swing the extra $ for the 25’. Thanks for first hand experience and look forward to more details/reviews as time goes on

What J10 said is pretty solid. I ride goofy and the wave on goofy side is primo. Portside wave takes some cleaning up as it can get washy. Also, this boat likes weight/ballast. If you are running a small crew or even have less gas or run with less fuel I would grab some lead bags to put in the front center locker. 

I'm picking up a 25 next week that I'll be putting some more hours on and will get some videos of how to set-up for surfing.
