When I had my yam 90 on a 5m humber assault it would do 42kn on gps, the same engine on my 5m destroyer only does 38 but is much nicer to be in.
The destroyer feels like it would be happy at 50/60 kn in flat water with a suitable engine however presumably transom weight would be the problem.
My old Concorde florida race hull with a 115 Suzuki would pull 50 plus but then started to try to chine walk into the next dimension.
If I can source a reasonable 140 yam next year I'll bolt it on the destroyer and report back !
