That will be quick, about 35 knots but it wont be very comfortable at that speed, adventurer's don't have a good rep on here due to their shallow V hulls.

Do you already own the boat?

If it helps, my 470 with a 60 4 stroke does about 33 knots - which is pretty hairy in a small boat, or I might just be getting old.

I get 30 odd knots out of a 1989ish engine on a 5m "deep V" for what it's worth...

Absolutes are a variable in this game...

My 5 mtr Humber Destroyer 60 Etec hits 30/31 kts flat out now it's prop'd right. Deep V though. A couple of the boys we knock about with in the summer have Zodiac Pros that size (shallower V) with 60HP four strokes (1xYam and 1xMariner) they get a couple of kts more.

I have the 4m which starts to 'twitch' at 30knts which I feel could get a lot worse very quickly if you're not 100% in control. I think the 4.5 is just the same hull, but longer ....

Not sure you'd ever use all 60 horses to be honest. Its not a big or heavy enough boat to get the most out of a 60.
