The 25 Encore RF floor plan features a centre access stern gate from a good sized swim platform, complete with stainless steel ski-tow bar.  When you match that to the forward-arching hybrid wakeboard tower/bimini overhead, and power options up to 300hp, the Encore is suitable for every water tow sport you can imagine.

Just inside the rear gate, twin aft-facing sofas, with ample storage space underneath for all your wet toys, provide a great “spotter” seat or an aft conversation area while you cruise the shore or have enjoy a sunset dinner afloat.  Amidships, two high back captains’ chairs with folding armrests are positioned for the captain and co-pilot.  The fiberglass helm console features a removable windscreen and more storage underneath behind a good sized access door.  Forward, twin facing sofas, again with ample storage under both, create a separate second conversation area.

The SHP package adds a larger and lowered middle tube to create Manitou’s patented V-Toon® technology hull, positive angle lifting strakes to both sides of all three tubes, and Barracuda nose-cone design for superior performance at high speed and in rough waters.

With three different floor plans to choose from in the Encore line, top end luxury appointments, enviable performance and a pleasantly surprisingly affordable price point, this ‘toon has it all.
