Default 2019 23 with Twins vs 25

Hello guys.
I have owner regulators since 2004 and never knew this site existed. I'm thinking about purchasing the the new 23 Regulator with the twin 150hps, boat will fill 90% of my boating needs. The 10% will be offshore about 10 miles and maybe One or Two trips per year more than that.
Question for guys that have been on both boats, do you think the 25 will be a noticeable ride difference for those longer trips ( 10 plus mile runs)?

Thanks for the help

I don't know if ten trips are worth the $ difference, but going from a 24 Regulator to a 25 for me was a quantum difference. the 25 has an loa of 30' which makes for a great ride. Good luck with your decision.

The 25 is an awesome ride, every time I take it out I am continually impressed by how well it handles the seas, and turning it at speed is flat out fun.

I think either boat will fulfill your needs. The 25 is about 1,000 lbs heavier which adds to ride quality. However, I doubt the ride would be significantly different considering that both boats should only be offshore under similar conditions; meaning if you would not go in the 23, the 25 does not make it doable.
