Comes in cb and fin keel versions. More than 250 of them out there. Also known as Elite25. Doesn’t look like they’re raced much. Only listing seems to be New England PHRF, which gives the cb version a rating of 246.... not quick; the displ/lgth ratio is over 200. For comparison, a J/24 rates 168. It has a displ/lgth ratio of 173.

I don't believe for a moment it's that slow. SA/Disp of 21.32 it's gotta' be low 200's.

It’s about the same size as a J/24 and weighs 900 pounds more. (IB diesel...?) Sailboatdata shows SA/disp at 16.13 (SailboatData.com - ELITE 25 Sailboat) Keel is likely cast iron. Probably a nice boat for cruising, but lack of PHRF ratings for such a fairly popular design must indicate something. Kirié’s that I’ve seen have been well put-together and nicely detailed, with surfaces that have held up well, resisting dings and nicks from wear & tear.
