If you run boat boats at the same speed, fuel usage will be similar. Hp required and therefore fuel usage is based on length, weight and hull type for a given speed. Less important are number and size of the engines.

But fuel usage per mile goes up exponentially with speed, so you will not use the same fuel by running one boat slow and the other boat fast for the same miles.
