The HR25 was designed by George Hinterhoeller in the late 1960's as a slightly larger and roomier version of the SHARK 24. This is evident in the basic design of the boat. Many have mistaken the HR25, for a modified SHARK. True SHARK fans would never make this mistake. The boat was originally built by Hinterhoeller Yachts in the first 2-3 years of production and thereafter constructed by C&C Yachts in their 'Production Facility' which was run by George. Total numbers are not yet known but at least 55 were built. As both a fun and fast boat, the HR25 is a perfect weekend cruiser and club racer for the novice to the experienced yachtsman.
