    Was hoping someone here could help me? I'm needing to find out the weight and height of a 1960 Trojan 25' cabin cruiser?

    Thanks to all that reply!

    Which model? How's it equipped? Tanks? Dry weight or full up?

    A typical 25' cruiser might range between 1.5 tons for an especially light one to more then a few tons for a wholesome putt putt. Height on the trailer, on the ground? Hardtop, convertible? On the trailer heights might range 7 to 10 feet.

    ask the seller. if they don't know the weight of the craft ask if they know her displacement.

    No awards for housekeeping there. If it helps any, my 30 Trojan Sea Raider is rated at 8,100lbs dry and empty.

    Don't by "sight unseen" or without paying a reliable surveyor to provide a report (unless it is that one at $600 odd - then "pot luck") :D:D:D:D
