I bought a 26' Daytona with twin 6.2 MerCruisers.
Love the boat!

What year had twins in a 26? That thing must be real stern heavy.

It is a 2002 26 and not stern heavy at all. Pops right up on a plane really fast. Nice combination, and easy on fuel, 10 GPH total for both!

The engines are Mercruiser 6.2's (377" small block Chevy's) 320 HP each and I get 80 mph and it seems to be burning 10 GPH total for both engines.
Really nice combination.

You are stern heavy.
I had 650 HP in my 2001 26 single engine and got 94 MPH
I now have 800 + HP and have seen 112 GPS with 3/4 tanks.

That 10 GPH is figured the average per tank full. I calculate my hours and gallons at every fill up and log it and do the math so it is an overall average including idleing in and out of harbors. I typically cruise at around 3,000-3,500 RPM which is 40-60 MPH. Top speed is 5,100 RPM and that gives me 80 MPH.
