i would rather have 350 mags over 310 hp 454s.10 hp less per motor and app 150 lbs liter,do the math,but no mater what engines,the 26 nova is a good low buck boat.i once had a 27 foot v hull,single engine,it was a real mut till i put a 800 hp 509 sc engine in it.it was a lot of fun at 85 mph.

That was my thought too.....I've got 32' with my Sunny with an 8' beam and you wanna talk tight...I need Vasaline and a shoe horn to change the oil!! I'm not hugely familiar with the layout on the Nova's.....but twin BBC's is gonna be tight.

Thumbs up

yes twins will be tight but twins is much easier when it comes to docking and if your out and break something you can still get back home on the other engine your fuel wont be much more if not less depending on how you run the boat. other costs will be more granted there are 2 instead of one. i would go with the bigblocks they are more desirable when you go to sell in the future and should get better milage at the same speed as the smallblocks and they wont have to work as hard so they should last longer

thers plenty of room to work on twin BB's. By buddie has a 91 nova with 450 hp 454's and bravos. runs mid 80's. boat handles great,really fun to run. NOW if your 350 lbs you probaly would find it hard to work on ANY twin engine boat

Thanks for all the replies guys, I only wanted info, because there was a nice 1990 wellcraft nova red one on craigslist a while back, with brand new trailer, and less than 300hours, i thought it was really clean and unmolested, thats all.
I am also interested in the 1990 formula 272 would that be a better choice of boat, as I think they have a bit biger beam, also has working fridge, little beter for weekend sleep overs, which is what i want out of a boat.
