The Pilot House 25 model adopts the same long standing principles that Orkney Boats have been so well renowned for over the years, including a robust seaworthy design with uncompromised sea keeping skills. Whether the boat is to be used for serious passage making with twin engines or simply for coastal cruising with a single engine, the Orkney Pilot House 25 has this versatility.
Like her sister ship the Orkney Nelson 27, the new 25 has been developed to comply with RCD category B and to be capable of meeting MCA commercial craft requirements with little modification.
The wide beamed hull features convex panels with fine sections forward developing into a moderate dead rise V aft: This results in a boat that is easy to drive & stable in following seas. Even in more difficult conditions the Orkney 25 will remain comfortable and safely get you home. With a range of different engine options up to 250hp the emphasis has, much like with previous models, been on ensuring good all round performance whilst keeping the boat economical to run.
The elegantly styled wheelhouse combines the traditional Orkney ‘work boat’ image with a sleeker, more modern profile on the water.
