South Coast 25
The South Coast 25 was designed by Warren Metcalf. Warren was killed in a tragic diving accident before he was able to finish the design. The SC 25 was built to compete with the popular Coronado 25. About 100 SC 25s were produced.

Our boat is a 1969 South Coast 25 with a fin keel. There is a V-berth at the bow with anchor chain storage at the very front. Moving aft, a bulkhead separates a (very cramped) head on the port and a closet on the starboard from the v-berth. Aft of this there is a table with two benches which drops down and converts to a (supposed) double berth on the port side. On the starboard is the galley: a sink, counter, and detachable two burner alcohol stove. Aft of this is the companionway. The cockpit is a bit longer than 6 feet. Tiller steering. We have a 15HP Mercury outboard mounted in the lazarette with remote controls (throttle and shifter) in the cockpit.
Head room is not good for me. I'm 6'2" and have to stoop when I'm below although the boat is equipped with a pop-top. This is a nice feature as it _does_ allow me to stand up straight in that portion of the cabin. It also allows a nice breeze. She has a roller-furling genoa jib and one jiffy-reef on the mainsail (and lazy jacks).
I am not sure what all was original. Some things I do know were added by the previous owner: roller-furling, jiffy reefing, remote controls, outboard. Based on the installation of the head, I would say that this was either standard or a factory option. The previous owner also raised the attachment point for the boom on the mast to provide additional headroom in the cockpit.
