1997 zodiac Milpro 4.7 with Rigid Hull Max Engine Size

Hi guys new to the forum i had a search for the topic but couldn't find it.

I have had my Zodiac Milpro 4.7 for a few years now i use it for spearfishing mostly and am looking to put a bigger engine on it. I am currently running a 30hp Suzuki Oil Injected 2 stroke and it maxes out with 2 of us onboard about with gear at about 24 notts. I go offshore a bit with it and getting out to the outer islands where i live is a bit of a pain (its 10km offshore).

I want something a lot faster and was thinking a 60hp just so i don't get another engine then wish i had more power again. What do you guys think?

I also dont know what the max engine size is for my boat its a 1997 mk3gr that was fitted with a ridgid hull by zodiac. The current model has a max hp of 65hp without a rigid hull.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there, I have just sold a Zodiac 4.7m PRO, not sure how they compare but mine was rated max hp of 60. Mine had a 50hp Suzuki 4stroke and was good for 30+ knots. Advice to me was that 60 made no real difference as the weight, drag etc soaked up the power. Cheers.
