How about the narrower Humber 6.3 Ocean Pro with a 150hp?
Nice boats but they're not fast for size and power. Deep V and tube tails drag.
You may want a shallower V and point boat with tapered tubes that don't drag... Revenger?
All about balance for what you want.
Our 6.3 with 175hp optimax did 53mph on GPS.
