Default speeds for 50 Hustler with trip 575s

What are the respective speeds for a 50 Hustler with trip 575s?

3000 RPM cruise, a typical faster cruise speed and top end.

Thanks.

A triple 500EFI Hustler 50 which was at the 2003 Miami Boat Show ran 83 mph. Dropped it in water for the first time right after the show for a photo shoot and it ran 83 there and then. A speed of 90 mph is not unheard of with triple 575s, depending on conditions of course. It will be between 87 and 90 mph.

That 50 in the classifieds is pure class. I just love it in white with that blue trim. It looks like a good deal too. It's been on the market for some time now meaning that the price could probably go further down. And it's not bad as it is: retail on a new 50' with that power and equipment would be around 600K.

With the 575's ya better get good at swapping drives, big heavy boats and the re-entry loads really take their toll on Bravo's. Thats always been the quandary, those big boats ride so nice that it's hard not to use them in a chop and nothing ruins a day like a busted drive If you use the speed they won't live, damn shame.

BTW that is a beautifull rig in every way. I'm always suprised of these awesome looking rig with VHF's that look like they are 40 years old and yellow while everything else is perfect.

I think CBR is already good at swapping drives. If I understood correctly, he already has a boat with outdrives
