They're getting mid 80's with 500 hps. I would think they should do a little better with the 525'2

We will be happy with 85-86 mph out of the gates. This is where I think we will run, but we shall see. Gotta love those stock, reliable 525's....

It looks awesome! For some reason I had thought that the paint was carried onto the dash and had to do a double take with the new photos. I like the clean dash and those gauges are way cool. That is just one incredible paint job and the whole boat looks fantastic.

Dan, are you sure you're not a little low on the speeds? Some guys have reported those speeds with the 500s and regular bravo 1s. You may yet break 90mph. Either way, Stan is going to be the envy of everyone who sees that machine. Nice job.

Miller,

Thanks, the boat came out great and we are real proud of it. You are correct that some boats are posting those speeds with 500's and bravo 1's. The biggest difference is that this boat is much heavier than the older model boats. We added corian countertops, AC, fresh water, water tanks, full cabin liner etc so it slows the boat down a bit. I think that those speeds are pretty realistic. If they are higher, great. If not mid 80's on stock 525's in a floating condomimuim is great.

We are seeing 84 -86 mph in the new boats with 500's once the motors are broken in and loosen up a bit. We will be happy to see mid 80's out of the box, real speeds. We will keep you posted after we do some testing.
