I don't know about MAX cruise...just cruise. These engines should be quite happy at 2400rpm. I would guess that to be right in the sweet spot of 70-80%. And I have since run the boat there....and I have to say that I am becoming a Cummins convert. They are quiet sweet running engines. Nothing but a low hum at that rpm and a solid 19 knots!!! Now I need to go to boatdiesel to check out the fuel/power curves to see what it is really doing.
