I think you're right - after Sean posted I Googled a bit and the MKII gives this on the manufacturer's data:

Outboard data
Shaft Long
Min recommended power (Hp - kW) 10 - 8
Max recommended power (Hp - kW) 20 - 15
Max power allowed (Hp - kW) 30 - 22
Max speed (Km/h - mph) 47 - 29
Folded boat dimensions (m - fi)

I think 25 kts in a SIB is more than enough!

Over to Fenlander - for the record my Zodiac Fastroller 3.4/Tohatsu 9.8 hit 17.5 or so (all these are WOT on a good day and maybe briefly - 16.5 is more typical) - my BAT and Merc 15 does about the same. Had a Yam 380 but that was slower with a 15, a Suzumar 3.6m did about 17 too with a 15.

25 will get you higher especially with the flat bottom Honwave but 25 kts is pretty fast - David?

Another very comprehensive Futura outfit with a 15:

zodiac futura s sport mk1 rib sib boat with outboard and trailer | eBay

Very easy to make money on these sorts of things - split and sell the trailer, engine, SIB, wheels, spares separately and after two or three like this you make enough to buy your own set-up for effectively nothing.

Max, that's the same boat you posted before but with a different engine:
