The CR25 (Cruiser racer 25) is a multi-chine ply yacht designed for easy unitized construction with ply bulkheads slotting into ply fore and aft girders to form the basic framework - the girders form cockpit seat and bunk fronts. Stringers are then fitted into the framework to form chines and after as much internal fitting out has been done, the hull panels are applied.
The standard layout has 3 main berths and 2 quarter berths plus separate wc/wash area, folding chart table and galley. The keel is retractable for easy recovery and launch and trailing.
