Arrow Re: Skater 32 Outboard Vs. Inboard

Engine Configurations Estimated Speeds*
2 X2.5 Mercury efi Outboards 95-97 mph
2 X Mercury 300 Outboards 100-103 mph
3 X 2.5 Mercury EFI Outboards 110-113 mph
3 X Mercury 300 Outboards 116-120 mph
2 X Mercury HP500EFI Bravo One stern drives 102-106 mph
2 X Mercury HP575SCi Bravo One stern drives 118-120 mph
2 X Mercury HP500EFI Dry Sump Six stern drives 115-118 mph
2 X Mercury HP800SCi Dry Sump Six stern drives 120-123 mph
2 X Sterling HP825 Dry Sump Six stern drives 145-150 mph
2 X Mercury HP1050SC Dry Sump Six stern drives 165+ mph
2 X Sterling HP1150 Dry Sump Six stern drives 170+ mph


A couple outboards will certainly be cool. 525 EFI's just give you that V-8 sound. I like the sound. Either way is fine I am sure.
