Lovely The optimax is perfect for the boat, it gives an acceleration and sound that any 4-stroke can't give. I have tried it with a 4-stroke 90 and itīs not near what the 115 merc gives in top speed and acceleration with a steelprop. The fuel consumtion is also great, at 25 knots 0,44/Nm at 40 knots around 0,7/Nm... I have about 20 Hours i think and been riding 1000Nm from midsummer when I got it.

Good luck with the test run!!

The test boat is fitted with a suzuki 90 4-Stroke. The boat is light but that fueleconomy is I did not expect that even from a suz 90.

I will drive it mostly alone, but is it possible to sit 2 adults and one 9 yo child?

Absolutely, I've been riding it a lot with my family this summer and we have one 4 Year old and a 13 months little one. At most we have been 6 people in it and that works as you sit on the tubes.

Just back after the testdrive.

I am impressed, but i think you did right with a optimax. The boat is today rated at maximum 90hp, but i think Henrik can make another 115

The suzuki had a good acceleration and was fast enough, but i think merc is my thing.

And in 25-30 knots it was like a toy...

First time ever i could not say "i donīt like this or that". The boat is exacly what i want.

I think as Henrik said a darker grey hull and black tubes will fit very good together.

I will work little with finance, but i think i will order one early next year.

Nice Itīs a very nice and well built boat that looks like nothing else. And absolutely with the 115 optimax together with a steel prop itīs racing!!! 25 - 45 knots in a couple of seconds hehe!!

Looks good!

Can you tell me/us the topspeed (gps) and if you know the rpm at topspeed. Which prop do you use?
And if you know rpm at other speeds...? 30knots, 40knots etc
