Above the waterline, the Gurnet Point has a moderate flare forward, slight tumblehome aft and the beauty of an uninterrupted sheer of a traditional Maine lobster boat.
Below the water, the Gurnet Point 25 has a semi-built-down hull that is stable, fast and efficient. The bilge and chine are very tight, which minimizes rolling, creating remarkable stability. The bow has a sharp deep forefoot, which decreases resistance to water flows and eliminates porpoising. The long full keel, with faired deadwood around the stern bearing, provide a long straight run, protects the running gear and minimizes resistance, allowing for a fast and efficient hull. Toward the stern, the hull flattens out to a long run with moderate dead rise.
The Gurnet Point 25 hull is designed with the proven length to width ratio of 3:1. With today's high cost of engines and fuel, its efficient hull moves easily and economically through the water with a low to moderate horsepower engine.
- A modern lightweight diesel inboard engine of 170-230 hp will push the Gurnet Point 25 at speeds of 20-25 knots, while using a minimal amount of fuel.
- An outboard powered version of the Gurnet Point 25 is also available with a maximum of 200 hp.
The Gurnet Point 25 with its wide 8-½ foot beam is legally trailerable without special permits or restrictions.
