Very Nice Boat for the New Sailor.
Don’t be fooled by the year this boat was built. The owner has made multiple upgrades and refurbishing that are listed in the condition section.
If you are just getting into sailing, this is the boat for you.
This is a “Big Little Boat”. For only being 25 feet, this boat has a lot of room in the cockpit and below deck is very spacious.
There is a V-Berth and a bench seat on both sides that will serve as sleeping areas for that overnight trip to Angel Island.
The table is easily converter from it’s fold up and stowed position to a functional surface for eating, entertaining, or working away from the office.
She is in very good condition and ready for your adventures on the bay.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.
Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL
A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.
CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

The first MERIDIAN’S were imported by Seafarer from G. de Vries Lentch Jr., a well established Dutch yard just making a transition to fiberglass construction. At this stage, 3 models were available: BERMUDA, MACKINAC and VINYARD. Later, a modified version was built at the Seafarer plant on Long Island, NY USA. As a result, one MERIDIAN often looks very different from another. An inboard was offered as an option on all models.
