Power Boating Canada was on the waters of Lac William in Saint-Ferdinand, Québec to test out Princecraft‘s Vogue 25 RL. The Vogue series was designed for 2021; this model, the 25 RL, has a deck length of 7.8 m and is 7.9 m in length itself. It also has a TriToon aluminum thickness of 2.0 mm.
The Vogue 25 RL offers an extra-large stern with a swim platform for water activities. The swim platform has stainless-steel rails for excellent grip. You’ll also find a Mercury Outboard Motor with 300 V8 L 4S and performance configuration.
The Vogue 25 RL’s helm console is new for 2021. It offers sport tilt steering with mechanism LED lighting under the driver console as well as an automotive style raised fibreglass helm/electric horn. Boaters will also enjoy the molded dash with touchscreen, GPS functions, sonar, and Simrad GO7 Multifunction.
Rest your legs on on ultra-plush seating; the captain’s chair is designed for comfort and reclines on both slide and swivel. The co-captain’s seat, too, offers on-slide and swivel as well as comfortable armrests. Enjoy your sound on the water for 200-watt AM/FM/Bluetooth with Kicker Stereo-integrated USB plug and auxiliary input. This model also offers six waterproof speakers and surround sound.
You’ll find great storage options located under the back chaise lounge with a flip-up backrest for seating and storage for a cooler under the back cushion. There is also a great deal of floor storage for paddles and tools. As if that weren’t enough, boaters can also utilize the flip-open helm hatch for even more storage or the optional head at the back of the boat which comes with a pop-up privacy screen.
When entertaining, make use of a movable plastic table with four stainless-steel cup holders. The black folding pedestal mount can be placed at the boat’s stern or bow, providing flexibility and possibility. Lounge seating is set with USB port cup holders for all your portable devices.
The Vogue 25 RL’s beam is 2.6 m. It also contains an additional wake board tower which, unlike last year’s manual version, is motorized for easy use.
When taken out on the water, we found the Vogue 25 RL to provide an extremely smooth ride. It pulled away from shore with ease and quickly achieved acceleration. The boat handled smoothly through tight turns, making for an enjoyable day on the water.
