Model Introduction
The Key West 225 Dual Console is a family fishing and all-purpose day boat. Built on the same hull as the builder's 22-ft. center console, the 225 Dual Console's seaworthiness"due to its high freeboard, self bailing cockpit, modified vee bottom and unsinkable construction"allows it to be used safely in choppy inshore waters.

Coremat is used on the sides to help minimize print-through of the fiberglass reinforcement pattern. The hull bottoms are solid fiberglass while the hull sides are cored with Nida-Core honeycomb for added stiffness and light weight. An iso-based DCPD blend resin, which does not shrink as much during curing and therefore has better cosmetic properties, is used throughout the hull skin laminate. The hull is supported with a one-piece fiberglass stringer grid that's completely encapsulated in fiberglass. The transom is cored with a high-density Coosa urethane foam reinforced with fiberglass strands. The cockpit deck is also cored with Nida-Core honeycomb. ...
