Quicksilver 430 HD

Hey guys! Ive been saving my money and hope to purchase a small inflatable around 4m next spring. I wanted a RIB but now I realise a SIB is the way to go for a first boat for me.
I just wanted to know how fast you guys would think a Quicksilver 430 HD would go with a 25hp 2stroke on the back (with 1 person) Just need some sort of idea of the speed were looking at. Thankyou

I'm guessing around 25 knotts.

I used to have a Quicksilver 270 AD and it felt like it was racing through the water!

Not sure this will really help much, but I also had a Quicksilver 270 with a 5hp outboard which would go to 13 knots with one on-board.
