72.3 for twin O/B's on a 33' is damned impressive. I've been saying ever since the O/B technology got to the current level that times will change. 1200lbs lighter than same hull w/IO's, the sun lounge now becomes your shed, better fuel economy etc, etc.
When I bought my first twin O/B 24' Sonic 12 yrs ago I figured that about 25' was the limit for twin O/B power in that day for what I wanted.
W/the new O/B's it's now beyond 30' for twins and 35' w/triples.
Damned impressive.
Now go with 300XS's or E-Tec's and drop another couple hundred lbs and see what happens.
Well done Active Thunder! Now who will be next to follow

Yeah, it really is. It reminds me of an updated and sleeker version of the outboard-powered, closed-deck V-bottoms back in the 1970s and 1980s.

I need to ask Patrick about the boat's fuel efficiency. It should be pretty good.

This particular owner did not opt for it, but they said you could do it.
