Pro 15 with Suzuki 250

As I am not Zodiac fan and even less fan of Suzuki I want to have your opinion on the following for a good friend of mine who is a proud owner of the package.

Zodiac Pro 15 with Suzuki 250, prop 16X24,5 (6.100 RPM WOT), the engine is offset by 3" and performs well not leaning to a side on high speed.

WOT speed is around 47 knoths

Is this speed satisfactory ?

For a boat that is under 21' long overall I would have expected more speed, but I am not familiar with the normal speed of this hull/power combination.

Gulp !!

Well considering that the boat is rated to a max of 150hp and the paper work sugests top speed of 52mph/85kph i would of expected it to go a tad faster on a 250 after the transoms been ripped off !!

Yup, was thinking the same myself. Max recommended power is only 115hp!!

Surely it would have been wise to check the transom pate for max allowed hp before throwing a huge lump like that on the back?!?

Is that really a 250hp? Looks too small to be a lump that size?

No way is that a 250. The DF 250 is a monster, that's a 140 or new 150.

As said before personally I havenīt seen the package my own eyes, here are two more pics showing the beast is 250 hp.

This boat along with Valiant Vanguard powered with Honda 150 hp will be used to cruise around Iceland mid of June for charity fundraising.
Their website is www.krafturikringumisland.com this website is only in Icelandic but nevertheless worth looking at.
