There are eight models in the top pontoon line that Starcraft builds – from 23 to 25 feet – each finished in plush luxurious upholstery, synthetic teak flooring (that lasts) on the bow and stern deck, and extended swim platforms. The 25 C DC model offers a unique layout that features an aft facing lounger slightly angled aft from the port side but out on the swim platform – it’s a lovely spot for two to cuddle or one to stretch out. Inside the rear gate you’ll find every inch of floor space covered in premium carpet and well-utilized. There’s an l-shaped sofa to port opposite a nicely equipped galley, twin captain’s chairs behind matching windscreens, and two forward sofas with sunlounger seat backs for a capacity of up to 14. The HMX performance strakes and a PR25 center tube give you the potential for greater performance in rough water with power options up to 300hp and Sea Star hydraulic steering for confident control. Of course the ski tow bar takes the fun to the end of the tow rope all day, and the LED lights carry it well into the evening in style. Starcraft offers a lifetime warranty on the tubes, deck and transom.
