its an Osprey.
Osprey Ribs started life as part of the Northern Diver company, and Offshore Components.......Hence your Offshore 4.5.

A 90hp on a 4.5m should give you over 40 knots

Edit: looks bigger then 4.5m though...

Thought so, but a SR5.4 with a 90 does around 40 knots so you should be pleased
