At a good 2500-2800 rpms we do 15-17ts and shes very very comfortable. Even in 3 chop shes quite smooth. Which is fitting because her hull is solid mahogany and 3/4 to a full inch thick fiberglass. She weighed in at nearly 14k pounds when they loaded her on the trailer and crossed state lines!
My 1970 Egg Harbor 37 weighs about 20,000 lbs.
According to a sales brochure from the company, boat is able to go 24 knots, cruise at 15. But I have never been able to do that. I am the fourth owner. I cruise around at a slow speed of 6 to 8 knots.
