I agree. I had a 200hp on my 6.5mtr and the performance was about right. However, the transom needed strengthening to take the pounding. I don't think the hull is any heavier than other comparable ribs and the boat in the picture, with only a small console, will be fairly light.
Humber made different claims to the power rating of the Destroyer hull during the production run and I'd be very surprised if it was based on anything other than guesswork.
