This very successful cruiser originated in 1968 as the Birchwood 25 Interceptor. This open plan 4 berth hard top cruiser was very popular with over 1500 built. Rather like the 22ft models, the early versions had a short hardtop and petrol driven outdrive engine installations. The later versions featured a longer hardtop and others were available with a shaft drive on the tunnel plus overdrive. Most craft were open plan 4 berths but later models, called the Executive featured a separate forward cabin, hot water and shower. The shallow V hull with metal keel makes a reasonable boat to handle on the rivers. Early Interceptor models had Volvo 115/130 petrol engines with Volvo outdrive later models had petrol or diesel engines on the shaft drive or larger Volvo petrol outdrives.
