Ribeye for sale claims 70mph top end

http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F99528

This advert is claiming 70mph+ topspeed, Im not sure it would even do the 62mph? Is this possible or is the guy talking rubbish, I thought Phantom Evolutions only did around 68mph,they are not going to be slower than a Ribeye surely?

That's with a 225, so the extra HP on the Ribeye might just do the job. I believe that the 750/760 sport has a planing pad so it'll be quite quick, maybe high 60's although 70 might be just a tiny little bit optimistic I reckon! But I'm just guessing here... go test drive

No Chance. A Phantom 18 with 235hp would just nudge 70mph and that weighed about the same as the lardy seats in this thing! Anyway, don't Ribeyes fall to bits over 50mph?

My 750 has recorded 42 knots on the gps as a max speed. ,i hasten to add i haven't seen that speed myself yet,but i do wonder if 100hp more could give 26knots extra!Sounds a bit optimistic but then it does seem a quick planing hull.

I didn't post this to start a slagging off match of Ribeyes, they may not be my thing, everyone is entitled to spend their money on what they wish.
However, 70mph not a chance! My moneys on 60mph tops, maybe 62mph absolute max. As Alice mentions there are many hard boats that won't touch that speed.
