Cruise averages 15mph @3200 rpm. That is usually with 5 guys and gear. 2.5-3 mpg at that rpm. MPG goes way up at trolling speeds. Stock the rating is 135 for the engine, however, with the aftercooler addition probably around 150-165. Never had it on a dyno.

Sorry for late reply, been busy with newborn twins. Top speed varies, max rpm rating is 3600, at WOT with the full load I mentioned, full bait tank, and over 3/4 tank of fuel it picks up to 18-20mph. I never push it though, will run 16-18mph @ 3400 and engine sounds great. It is a heavy hull and I always have 5-6 grown men on board. When I go light load with 3-4 guys and run with less fuel in tank (short island trip for example)performance significantly increases.

95 gals and I calculate range from 210-240 mi depending on how heavy the load (# of fishermen), sea conditions, rpm (trolling, running & gunning, etc)
