Top Speed

Hi all

the top speed is 50knots and it feels like 90 in this small boat :-) I had some fun "airtime" with it :-) The angle is and ride position is great, two people take place behind the wheel and the a nice cruising speed from 25 - 40 knots.. however the best conditions is when itīs windy and lots of waves

bloody hell, 50 knots. Our 5.4 SR had a 90 and chine walked when near flat out. Looks a v nice boat, the hull must be pretty good.

What determines max hull speed before chin walking then? I read something about a flat planing pad at the rear that stops it and increases your max speed should the engine be up to it. Great engine btw also, we had the 90.

I don't know what exactly "chin walked" means but itīs quite stable in top speed but you have to know what you are doing as not much hull are in the water. The hull is very V shaped all the way back and itīs very light as itīs built in vaccuum injected vinylester plastic... I love the engine, great power and acceleration compared to any 4-stroke..http://www.dahlnaval.se

it's the violent side to side wobble you get at max speed with the motor trimmed right out, which makes you poo yourself the first time it happens

I paid around 29000 EURO for the boat with the engine so i guess the boat would cost around 14000 EURO without the engine. Itīs built in Nacka in Sweden.
