We had 37 point something on my first 4m. Side by side seating, two fat blokes on board (although I may have been slimmer 15 years ago than I am now).
50hp all manual Yamaha.

I had the wrong prop. It was a Yamaha prop but the pitch was too big. Really poor acceleration. It was all I could afford at the time!

I did see 38 Kt yesterday but this was with the tide of about 3 kt

Love the Sr4 for tearing about one up more bangs for your bucks than most boats!
