Arctic 28 - Speed with twin Optimax 150 ?

Hi !
I want to repower an Halmatic Arctic 28.
I do have one Mercury Optimax 150 XL and have the chance to get a 2nd one.
Are there any Arctic experts who can tell me what top speed it will reach ?
Are 35kn realistic ?!
Best Regards from Cuxhaven - Germany
Andy

I'm not sure, but if it helps and I remember correctly an Arctic 28 I knew with a pair of 225 opti's didn't do much over 40kts.

Okay - then I can be lucky if they push it up to about 30 kts
