Speed is just under 100 mph
I think with a little testing and different props it would see more than 100
another cool part of this boat is the reverse chine
It carves turns like you wouldnt believe
The turn carving sounds great, especially in a twin step. I would have expected much higher top speed though considering that is a twin steps strong suit. I know the powertrain is top shelf...Chief Engines and dry sump 6A's.
As it stands the powerboat is a "one off" and I know that does not help you with your sale, but I wish you the best of luck. I am glad the problems were corrected to Mike's satisfaction. Unprofessional behavior from a manufacturer will always be poorly received by the consumer.
I think differnt props and a spacer in the drives will help alot
The steps are small at best and there is not enough testing done to tell how to best vent them and prop to maximum
i still think there is alot of speed to be sqeesed out but would take some time on the water to figure out
What does a conventional "Pleasure" 41 Apache run with 900's? Low/mid 80's? I think it took almost 1200 hp to get a pleasure Apache to run 100 mph, the only ones that ran 100 mph were the full race setups, no cabin etc....with 1000 hp.
Same syle boat such as the 42OL (step bottom), Non Epoxy ran 105-109 with 1000 hp Sterlings....and much more test time and set up.
Are Commanche's being re-badged Apache's?

The OL should run faster than that with that power. At least 112-115.
