Hardly any drag at really low speeds or when on plane.
IMHO - the 18-19' RIBS like this one really strike the sweet spot between too small to be really versatile and too big to be easily used.
Our 19' RIB with 115 Yamaha could carry 8 on plane, reach low 50's and tow skiiers and wakeboarders with ease. It was great to go exploring or use to get back and forth from beaches , stores, towns etc.
