XS 530 with 80hp Mercury Fourstroke

Hi. Does anyone have any experience of these boats? What is the likely performance with this engine? And final question, are they hypalon? Cheers Will

I have a XS 530 with a 70hp Yamaha. It's built by some of the people that where working for Tornado when it was built in England. XS 530 is very similar to the old Englsh built Tornado of the same size. I can highly recommend it for it's excellent quality and sea handling.

Standard is PU which I choose, hypalon is a cost free option though. Laurence at Barnet Marine, the producer, prefers PU so I went for that.
