Power options for 6.2m Brig falcon

Hi all, im in the process of ordering a Brig 620 falcon here in Ausralia, im trying to ascertain if a 115hp 4 stroke will be adequate power, the Brig hull only is around 500kg(1100lb), im guessing at the most my biggest load would be 6 divers with gear, bar crossings would be the most often type of access to the sea. Any thoughts from you all out with RIB experience would be appreciated.

it was a looong time ago but think i was on a 6.2 Brig with 140 Suzuki. Seemed to go pretty well but it was rough as old boots so wasnt the best test.

If you are having 6 divers and kit i would think you need as much power as the boat can handle to give you most comfortable transit over a bar and out to sea.
