i like em! quite a quick hull and pretty good in rough! some people say they throw their heads in head sea but im not so sure... ive enjoyed everyone one ive driven and been on but im by no means an oracle! imho i think its more weight distribution with them!

Is the 25 the one @ £10995!! if so little hint it was advertised at £7995 a while ago! It is tatty despite wat the ad says! lots of stress cracks and poor driving gel coat damage on chines and superstructure. Its also been sittin still a while and despite what the ad says i saw it at cowes powerboat fest 2yrs ago in the salty water!

Worth a punt though..... its on my list if current ideas go wrong

The Revenger 25 is a very good sea boat, I raced the cabin version for two years in most sea states and it was a very dry ride, it also won me twelve races! I think that one that you are looking at needs quite a lot of work but will be a great fun boat. The only thing to watch out for is when you go into a very hard tight turn at high speed, she will suddenly go past the chine and almost run on her side, very worrying if you haven't had it happen before especially for the passengers! We used to drop a tab (trim) a little before the turn and then everything was fine. In my opinion that boat should have trim tabs.

I've seen a 30' Revenger Monza Magnum advertised. Does all said previously apply to that boat too?

No, The Revenger Monza is a totally different boat design and very beautiful it is to. I think there have been other discussions on Boatmad about the Monza before. If I had a choice I would go for it. I don't have a choice though right now. Revenger were silly to stop making that boat, they simply didn't market it properly.

Ive been on the ribs and not noticed that, do you mean it falls over chines and onto side of deck so to speak?? sounds uncomfortable! (maybe the tubes limit it on ribs) They grip really hard on corners dont they?

Remember a conversation with Lorne cambell back in the late 80's at his office in Poole, he said he was doing work on the then 25 hull ie the RB 84' hull because it fell on it's side in tight turns, this he said he would cure in later model's after a the mod's were carried out

There's 2 monzas doing the rounds at the moment. One in Spain for £10kish that has quote "a slightly tight engine but I think it's the starter" and one at Medway Bridge Marina that has had a load of money spent but needs more in my opinion. It's been sprayed up with a silver flake that just doesn't do the boat justice. He won't take less than £25k due to what he's spent. Both boats have been for sale at least 18 months if not two years which is a shame as they really need someone to take them on.

As far as I know there was only one other made and that ended up in Denmark or Norway.

Only ever come across two San Marinos both of which are on here, Mine which is inboard and anther which is outboard. Mike Sloggett sold the moulds to a guy in Denmark who will make you one if you want. I spoke to him a few years back and he wasn't interested in bare boat it had to be a complete package.

Don't know much about numbers of mediteranees but they were a very successful race boat and carry the same bottom as my San Marino. The extra length coming from two side pontoons either side of the bathing platform.

OldMan mentions a tight turn causing a fall over the chine which is spot on. It's not a problem if you know it's there as it it only happens with a really tight turn under power and can actually be fun to hear the missus scream as it goes over

Perfectly safe as all she does is lay on the side until the drive breaks free in the same way a phantom does at low speed, hard lock and heavy acceleration. You certainly shouldn't be using the amount of lock necessary to cause a problem at speed unless your idea of a fast racing line is 90 degree angles at the turn buoy.

Having had a couple of phantoms beforehand, this boat has a lot to live up to and she does it with style, never having given me any moments in six years.

She's dry as a bone in really heavy seas until you stop and then has a habit of collecting what seems like 100 gallons of water on the front deck due to the raised sides, then waits for the next bow rise and the delightful windshield design plants it all nicely in your lap but not a drop in the face. Dependant on the weather that can be either or

Anyway brilliant boats, built solid as you like that never really got into mass production, so go on you know you want to.

Not sure about about your lap getting wet. I had me face full of the 100 gallons a couple of times in france. maybe i didn't push hard enough or the ballance is wrong.

Blimey! What's he looking for it? Interesting to compare it to the Medway Bridge one. He may have spent £25K but I would be interested to find out how that breaks down (no pun intended). Was it £24k on the respray and sod all on every thing else? Medway Bridge couldn't even tell me if it's trailer was braked or not.
