Broker Comments. The Hustler 25.5 is a well
regarded quarter ton racer cruiser. An excellent Holman & Pye
design that couples great sea-keeping qualities
with good performance. Fast, powerful and light with a bal/disp
ratio of 49 and therefore stiff by modern
standards. This one has been extensively refurbished and updated,
probably one of the best available. A very good
example well worth viewing.
