According to the new CE Marking of the Balistic 7,8 it will take a single 225 HP
CE marking rules for boats under 8 meters
(Length * Width * 10 - 33) * 1,36 = HP
(7,8 * 2,54 * 10 - 33) * 1,36 = 224,56
Taking a twin outboard installation the CE marking is very strict, 225 / 2 = 112,5 HP pr. engine
I do belive you could put a 300 HP on the back of a balistic 7,8, but you would be breaking to ce marking, and there by you insurance might not cover the boat.
