6.5m Hysucat ... a bit weird but handles very well. However I would go for more horse power. Twin 50s will not give you the same a single 100hp, and on a 6.5m boat that seems too small.

EDIT

Bugger just noticed you have already made you choice ... Hysucat ... good choice!! You will have lots of fun with that.
