I tested this boat before it went to to trial. It did i think 32knts ish. The only downside is it has been capsized a few times for the solas trial. The engine did have a drink. It should be fine as its been used a fair bit since then. The only thing i didnt like was the seats being so so high!! and it has quite a bouncy ride. Its running with an Alpha leg with a Jack shaft kit from the engine to the drive. Other that that it would make someone a great work boat.

Not much room in them due to the engine housing though..
You probably had the production boat which had only a 75hp Yanmar, which was pretty slow!

would it be possible to replace the ulmans with some sort of lower jockey and sell them on? Leisure user doesn't really need them, they make this think look/feel odd and you'd get a good chunk of cash...

Yeah, 110hp, the engine is pretty much in the middle of the boat and It handles like its on rails, probably one of the best turning boats ive ever been in. Full lock, full speed turns with no fuss. And yes i would take the ullman seats off and find something more suitable!!

Ah, I must have miscopied it then-google was saying 54 and 75hp to me.
