Valid point. I was back down to 1200rpm so would have only been going 6kn even on a millpond.

I think Catalinajack is on the right track . . . .
Did the broker have another, more expensive boat, or one where he was the buyer's agent AND the seller's agent that he was trying to steer the op toward?!?

That particular broker might be evil, or he might just be ignorant. Although I suppose it's possible to be both evil and ignorant all at the same time.

I thought it was 37K, it's a semi-displacement hull, 49' length & 15'1" beam.

Or he may be aware that the vessel could be optioned with much more powerful engines. Of course that doesn't make the lower spec underpowered.
