Acadia 25 Lobster Boat – Old Fashioned Excellence

Acadia 25 Lobster Boat

Built to look and handle the water in the manner of traditional lobster boats, the Acadia 25 doesn’t disappoint. The Florida-built boat boasts standing headroom in the forward V-berth and amenities found on much larger craft.

Atlas Boat Works in Cape Coral, Florida takes the hull-design seriously too, and the Acadia 25, it follows, has a following of dedicated devotees. The hull sweeps to a tall, sharp bow, handles all seas gracefully, and has a trawler-like sureness at the wheel.

Powered by a Yanmar BY Common Rail diesel engine, the Acadia 25 cruises at 17 knots and reaches 21 knots at W.O.T. (150hp engine; the boat is available with a 110hp and a 180hp power plant as well) . The boat uses just under 4 gph at cruise speed and considerably less at displacement speeds.

The builders have gone to great lengths to keep weight low and economy high on the Acadia 25. The fact that they provide a 13lb anchor with the boat indicates they aren’t worried about weight. The back of the pilothouse is wall-less, using a heavy-duty curtain that rolls up out of the way to give passengers a closer communion with sea … another weight reduction measure.

Inside, the boat feels like luxury lobster boat, with wood on the walls and floors, sinks in the head and galley, four opening ports in addition to the windows and teak guards on all the counter top surfaces. The galley is “down”, giving the chef a lower center of gravity to work in, and the generous V-berth (surrounded by beautiful wood; including anchor compartment access through a teak cabinet door) features a step up for comfort and convenience.

The Acadia 25 uses a heavy-duty transparent curtain to close off the back of the pilothouse ... when needed.
