At this size of ribs

One must have a suitcase size wallet.

Manos, I cant' imagine that 31 footer consuming between 1 and 1,5 lit/mile. Think: It's a 2 ton rib + 400 lit fuel + motor + etc = almost 3 ton maybe more. (Much more if she was mine). In my point of view it's rather impossible to speed up to 38 knots (as they claim), burning 1,5 lit per mile.

As he explained to us Michael the speed and consumption figures he quoted (the boat weight is 1600kgs, with a single 250 goes up to 1900 and with fuel etc about 2300/2400 kgs) is because it has lower sea friction area due to the steps than the other boats. Now that is what this manufacturer says.
So, we have to test it at the end of April in Greece. We have been invited and I will be there to see if what the guy said is true or not

OK BYE ME.
We must have a 30 lit tank, plug it on the outboard and see how long it lasts. I can almost bet that it should not last more than 15 miles.
Those motors burn more or less 2,5 lit/mile. Considering the hi-tech hull I assume that she could give a 20% less fuel consumption.
