Center Console 25'
Modern, Ultra-Efficient Transom Design Broadens Power Options, Highlighting PROTECTOR’S Signature Performance.
PROTECTOR USA announced today, the release of its new, high-performance boat, the Protector Center Console 25’. Maintaining the same renowned Protector performance and handling capabilities, the innovative vessel is now capable of accommodating a single engine, instead of only dual engine power. The 25’ features a smart, efficient transom design that allows boaters to take advantage of lightweight powerful engine options — reducing fuel consumption and operating cost. Beautifully balanced for precision cruising in any sea state, the Center Console 25’ is constructed with Protector’s high-quality craftsmanship for the most discerning boaters, and offers signature speed, safety and ultra-comfortable on-the-water performance.
Equipped with a multi-purpose, high-performance design that is unprecedented in its category, the center console’s solid laminate fiberglass hull and chambered hypalon tubes offer shock absorption, stability and additional flotation. Providing unparalleled strength, its deep-V hull and tube design ensure unmatched safety and control compared to traditional hard-sided boats. The Protector Center Console 25’ seats six comfortably, features a large dry storage area below the center console and offers an optional canvas T-top to shield the console from the elements. Delivering the ultimate speed, handling and seaworthiness in all sea and weather conditions, the vessel’s shallow draft, 30-knot cruise speed and 48-knot top speed allows boaters to explore more destinations and go where other vessels cannot. “With all the lightweight, powerful engine options in the market today, we are able to offer a sleeker, more efficient transom that significantly reduces fuel consumption and operating cost without sacrificing any performance standards that are the foundation of the Protector experience.” said Tiffany Pelletier-Shiebler, marketing director, Protector USA. “The Center Console 25’ is an easy to drive, fun performance vessel that all boaters, from more experienced to novice, can confidently run with speed, comfort and safety, and even handle rough water effortlessly.”
The Protector Center Console 25’ can be outfitted with twin outboard engines, a single outboard, or a single inboard gas or diesel option. The vessel weighs approximately 4,100-pounds; has a 9-foot, 6-inch beam when inflated (8-foot, 3-inch beam when deflated); an overall length of 25 feet; and a deadrise of 60-degrees in the bow and 23-degrees in the aft. The center console has a length of 3-feet, 10-inches by a 7-feet, 8-inches width and is 5-feet high. The 25’ is equipped with a pressure tested stainless steel fuel tank that can hold 84 gallons. All Protector vessels feature a 3/4-inch solid hand-laid fiberglass hull, shock-mitigating five chambered hypalon tubes, UV and petroleum resistant color options and rubber “sure foot” flooring, and are protected by a 5-year structural hull warranty.
