Sollinger 4.9m with 60 HP two stroke

With regards to the above RIB and engine combo can anybody tell me:

- What will the fuel consumption be like?
- How fast will it go?
- Sollinger claim to be offshore, robust craft. Is this so?
- How many people can it carry?

Don't know about that particular rib but my Tormado, similar length and engine does 35-40mph and the outboard is rated at 6gph (gallons per hour) at WOT (wide open throttle). In reality I use on average about 6 gallons in 5 hours general use. ie cruising/wave jumping/showig off/pottering etc. It is rated for 8 persons but 5 is more comfortable as I only have one large jockey seat and passengers must sit on the tubes.
