82 would be really fast. Kinda makes ya wonder about stability if it gets that loose & quick. To put it in perspective, the 2002 Sunsation 288 I used to have with a 496HO ran at 67-68 with 69.4 being it's fastest with a 24p stock 4-blade, and the Suns are not too shabby in the speed category.

I'm sure there's some west coast boats that would do well but I really don't know squat about'em...

I know my partners 27' Fountain Fever with a 496 HO can't break 70 down hill behind his Suburban, 12 miles an hour faster in a Nordic with a cabin? I doubt it, anything is possible, I'm sure fountains aren't the fastest boats (well maybe they are......171?). Do you think one of Reggies boats could be out done by 12 miles an hour? Thats one fast Nordic........... 3 feet shorter but three feet of that 27' Fever is that silly point in the front.

I could be wrong but I find it hard to believe the nordic can produce that kind of number. What is the dry weight and is that with an XR? I run a 26 Corsa with a 496HO XR sick X dimension and can see 72 74 GPS running O so loose no cabin under 3200 lbs

Where's Krakmeup? His 2005 Superboat ran 74.1 (gps) out of the box with a non-lab Bravo 26. Has a 496HO and a Bravo x drive.

Superboat is a true 30'er. In my book that's a good # for 30' and 425hp. I know there's Phantom and Extreme (Activator 27') also, but thier hight and cabin size don't compare if it's used as a pleasure boat!

The Nordic 25 dry weight is 3550 with full cabin, Bravo X drive and SS 4 blade 24P. The 25 runs 72+ with the 496 MAG. Ask Waterheater who posted on this thread as well, he owns one. That is in fresh water add 2 for salt. The bottom is very well designed, crisp edged and fast. They have been built with HP 500's and 525's and run low 90's. Very stable and planted at high speed BTW.

I also have a customer with an ULTRA 247 XS / 454 MAG 390 HP / Bravo 1 / SS 4-24P. He runs 77- 79 all the time.

So with an XR take 5 to 6 mph off the top and that is real time. That will never hang in big water more than a lap or two without grenadeing. I don,t dislike the boat but my perception is that it is a lake boat. again I could be wrong.
