My old 1998 Convincor 253 w/502/415 ran 70 mph with a lab finished Mirage 25 under perfect conditions.

2000 259 Convincor 72mph GPS with low fuel and 1 person on boat (454MAG 461HP 26 Bblades labbed prop). I am looking forward to seeing what this boat will run w/ 600HP. Hopefully we will find out in 2009!
