Background to the Ericson 25
This website concerns the Ericson 25, a cruising sailboat that in its common, centerboard version, is capable not only of being trailered to any destination of your choosing, but also trailer-launched once you have arrived. This is not to say, however, that this site would not be of interest and usefulness to the handful of owners of the fixed-keel version of this boat, for the two are identical in terms of hull shape, deck layout, and interior layout.
A distinction must be drawn, however, between the Ericson 25 and the Ericson 25 Plus, which is a completely different boat. Ericson Yachts, in Southern California, produced well over three-hundred Ericson 25s from 1973-1978. This website does not address the Ericson 25 Plus, which was produced after this time.
We have three simple objectives on this website. First and foremost we intend this site to be a central storehouse of information on the Ericson 25 itself, with postings filled with images that concern the maintenance, the modification, and the sailing of this classic boat. Secondly, we intend for this site to be a place where owners of the Ericson 25 can record their names in a registry and also make their voice heard through comments on the various postings. Finally, we aim for this site to be the most accessible location for information concerning any Ericson 25 that is on the market.
To make this site as user-friendly as possible, we've added several features. First, there is an Index. This will take you to all existing posts or articles. We've also created a section named Most Recent Contributions. To find a specific keyword use the search function.
How to Contribute
If you have some material that you have written about the Ericson 25, of if you have some interesting pictures or documents that you'd like to share, we'd be happy to include your contributions on this site. The same can be said about interesting notes or diaries about specific cruises or journeys you've undertaken.
Hope to hear from you soon,
Roscoe, Oystercatcher, E25, #226
