I just picked up a 27 with 2 200hp optimax. I haven’t ran the boat yet but it came with 4 blade 22 pitch props. Not much help sorry.

I haven’t had a chance to get by the boat to check diameter of the props. Hopefully I will get a chance in the next week or so. Sorry

Good everyday props for center consoles will be either mercury bravo 1 or mercury rev4 props. You really need to try a set and get a baseline before you purchase. I know BBlades had a tryout program. Call them and see.

Grabbed a set of Bravo 14.5 X 19 3 Blades and the boat ran 72 with out much effort going to try a couple other blades when I have the opportunity but was pretty satisfied with the cruise speed as well as the all around performance of the Bravos and the cruise speed was decent with not a lot of RPM,Thanks for your input

Oh wow, that’s impressive. I’m looking forward to get mine on the water now. I was thinking low 60’s for mine. Was that GPS speed?
