25 XS

The NauticStar 25 XS will get you safely offshore in style and comfort. At rest, the 20 degree aft deadrise provides a stable fishing platform. Underway, the forward deadrise and dramatic bow flair deliver a deep, comfortable bow and a high and dry ride. The interior cockpit hosts two baitwells, three insulated fish boxes, and an aft bait station. A console with a walk-in dressing room is also standard.
