I agree 9 KT would be way to fast for economical cruising.

Some European boats go to extremes that wouldn't fly in N America.

But the Bartender has this basic hull w/o the huge swim step.

Look at the Italian boat and see that beautiful curved windshield. Only very high end speed boats like Century would have such a pricy feature here. But perhaps this Italian boat IS a very high end boat ....

Still love those curved windshields. Big time class. No special function .. just style.

I guess 9 knots is a bit high for that boat's cruising speed, more like 6 or 7, I guess is realistic.

MY boat is the exact same size and I also have twin screws but I would imagine this one has 380 hp turbo diesels and I have 80 hp each..

I can't afford to own a planing hull cruising boat.
