Manitou 25 Encore VP (2014-)

1 x 150-hp Evinrude E-TEC H.O.

Brief Summary

The Manitou 25 Encore was created to provide a more cost effective solution to those wanting to acquire a premium build, but not get all of the bells and whistles that drive the price up. While quality is still in the build, a lot of the puffery is left to the options list for the individual buyer to dial in to a specific price point. In this manner, the Encore has risen in the popularity ranks for Manitou, and it shows no signs of slowing.
