ProductionEdit

The boat was built by Pearson Yachts in the United States.[1][5][6]

The Triton 25 is a development of the US Yachts US 25 and the Buccaneer 250, with the Triton 25 actually built from tooling and molds purchased from US Yachts.[1][5][6]

The Pearson Yachts series of Triton boats were named for the Alberg Triton, which had been introduced in 1958.[1][5][6]

DesignEdit

The Triton 25 is a small recreational keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass, with wood trim. It has a masthead sloop rig, an internally-mounted spade-type rudder and a fixed fin keel. It displaces 3,750 lb (1,701 kg) and carries 1,250 lb (567 kg) of ballast.[1][2][5][6]

The boat has a draft of 4.25 ft (1.30 m) with the standard keel and 3.0 ft (0.91 m) with the optional shoal draft keel.[1][5][6]

The boat is normally fitted with a small 4 to 8 hp (3 to 6 kW) outboard motor for docking and maneuvering.[1][6]

The design has sleeping provisions for five people, with a double "V"-berth in the bow cabin, a main cabin, port side, drop-down dinette table that forms a double berth and a starboard, aft quarter berth. The galley is located on the starboard side amidships and is equipped with a two-burner stove and a sink. The enclosed head is located just aft of the bow cabin on the port side. Cabin headroom is 66 in (168 cm).[6]

The boat has a PHRF racing average handicap of 213 with a high of 213 and low of 213. It has a hull speed of 6.2 kn (11.48 km/h).[2][5][6]

Operational historyEdit

In a 2010 review Steve Henkel wrote, "A large foretriangle and a blade-like small mainsail gives the appearance of a fast racer, but in reality the boat does not stand out as a particularly fast boat ... The pinched bow gives too little room for a full V-berth; use it for small kids only."[6]
