Capacity can be calculated according through a formula like the ABYC, US Coast Guard or EEC certification or using displacement figures, common sense and reports from builders. The DWL (Designed Water Line) is at 5000 lbs (2,200 liters). That puts the cockpit sole about 3" above the DWL. That weight includes the engine, tanks with fuel, gear, crew, everything. Look at the pictures of the CS25 (same hull but no cabin), she is built as designed and floats high. If I had to calculate a USCG capacity plate, depending on the builder, we would get more than 6,000 lbs (2,700 liters) and 6 persons.

It would take a lot to bring her down to water entering the cockpit scuppers but I find it unsafe to have more than 6 persons or a heavier weight on that boat.

8 persons is a lot on a 25' boat. There is barely enough room to stand in the cockpit for 8. Is that 8 a figure you choose or some rule?

The CX25 is not different from most production boats and should satisfy all rules the same way than similar boats. There may be new rules that I don't know.
