Anything between 115 and 150 hp will be fine. Had a 2stroke 115 V4 Yam on my 5.95m Viper for 5 years and it was an great choice.

I ordered a 5.75 to replace my 5.25m in 1994. Only the 5.75m mould was in use so they used the 7m mould but miss judged the were the insert needed to be set. Only found out when I got home and it wouldn't fit in the diving club. A tape measure revealed an extra 20cm. It was a superb handling boat and I regret selling it to Rene.
