To date I have driven an 850 canopy with twin 150hp OB and an 850 Open with 315hp single inboard. Also the 1050 Open twin 300hp outboard and now this 950 wrap-back console in single 370 inboard. The 315 wasn't gonna light the world on fire. The 1050 was. The 850 twin outboard and this 950 are kinda similar. I'm not sure but I think I heard this hull might take a pair of slim inboards, something like the Hyundais. Lightly loaded, I think this 950 would exceed 42kts - I saw 41kts
It is currently carrying a 68kg SOLAS liferaft and a load of coding crap like a manual fire pump
P.S. Someone at ERR mentioned it sounded great as it passed. I didn't get to hear that as I was always on it (rules be rules). I found this (same motor) and I get it now! woo-hoo!
