BIG boat...I can't imagine it is blistering fast....prob high 70's/low 80's

just a guess though.

Probably not fast enough to pass a gas dock.

Seems like "dock bragging" with those numbers.......it is 2250 HP but that is a big, heavy non step hull with bmax's

Another angle is to ask the WOT RPM. Then figure top speed based on 10-12 % slip. There is an easy to use speed calculator on the BAM website.

Using BAM's speed calculator and these base figures, the 500 EFI boat would do 85 mph and the 575 equipped boat would do 91 mph.
