a mate has a 6m Humber Destroyer, its adequate without being a hotrod. Fuel wise it seems OK.

More power is always nice but from being in his boat its fine with a 90, a 140 would be better but it depends what you want to use it for. Low 30's speed wise is about right but we went to Scotland from Ireland in his with 4 adults on board in a lumpy sea and held it at 28 knots no problem. Fully loaded with about 8 on board it still planes but can take a while.
