I would assume that the post 95 hulls would be a tad slower due to having more free board thus being a little heaver.

When I worked at the marina a guy had a 33' PP with 600-650HP 540's... boat ran like 91-93mph if I remember correctly. Pretty sure it was a late 90's hull, maybe even 2000 or so...

The new hull mold was done in 94 the newer boats should run slightly faster with the refaired bottom!

The boat should run 88-91 depending on boat setup. I've seen 78-82 on 500hp boats just with prop changes.

On your low deck hull 500 pushed them around 80,600 should get you around 86-88 depends on set up,actual hull weight and bottom condition,boat loves bay water and really well built.

Good luck to you guys. Look forward to seeing your #'s when there done.
I'd like to try a couple of 7-10 Ilmors and some Konrads if $ was no object. I wonder how they would work in a 33?

502cu in Express Marine Engines just a tad over 600. Mike had the boat when I got the chip and that was in 1996. Not exactly sure the year but the motors were already getting tired when we did the Key West poker run in '98. Motors went in 99. Absolutely awesome riding boat and a blast with that power.

Man time flies.
