Pioner 13 is planing hull and Max HP is 15. It states ..easily planes
Vids on utube show Pioner 12 at displacement speeds
Vids on Utube show Pioner 13 planing
Based on that I suspect its a displacement boat and my 12ft displacement boat has a 4hp.. and goes 4-5 knots. Displacement speed is generally dependent of the length of the boat..so suspect it will have similar properties to my Highlander Family Fisherman 12ft. If I put a 6hp on my displacement.. all that happens is the sea gets churned up more at the wake..and its bow rises higher..but speed stays the same.
Of course..if it planes..it a different kettle of fish..but I can find no reference to that boat planing ? Did you ask if it planes when you got it ?
