Default Fast single engine center console?

What is out there in the 20-25 range that will do 70 with a single 300xs? Was checking these out online and was wondering what else is out there. Thanks Mike

The 300x boat might do 70, but the other one I think does 60.

Was that an iguana sitting on the boat lift?
I think the Spectre is a nice looking boat. I wish that it had a full width rear bench instead of those jump seats.

I had a 23 concept with a 225 efi back in 97 and it would only do about 58-59. Maybe someone has rigged one with more power but the website says 240 max.

The biggest problem is to get a manafacture to put a 300 on a boat 20-25ft "Insurance Liability" a Center Console at that size running better then 60mph is a handfull.

I am sick of insurance. My 47 was a pain to insure, any cat that I looked at forget about it. So even a small fast v-hull is a liability. I looked at a 22 foot fishing cat that would do over 80 mph, wonder what my insurance guy would say about that.

I have a Concept 23 with Optimax 225, hyd jack plate, and K planes. 58-59 MPH is it. That is also as fast as you want to go in this hull.
