Based on my last two Ocean runners.  The latest is the new 2020 hull design

2017 hull
Twin 200 Suzuki's fly by wire 4 Blade 24" pitch Suzuki props
Average fuel burn was about 2.0 mpg at 36 mph
Best fuel burn was 2.4 MPG
Max speed was 49 mph

2020 hull (Flat pad incorporated into the mold) Not the partial tunnel
Twin 300 Suzuki's fly by wire 4 Blade 24" pitch Suzuki props
Average fuel burn 2.0 mpg all day long.
Best fuel burn 2.25 mpg @ 38 MPH @ 3800 RPM
2.0 mpg @ 44 MPH 4400 RPM. (Perfect speed for this hull)
Max speed 64 MPH
Props turning outward.
100 gallons of gas
Navigates great in head and following seas.  Very little trim tab needed. 

Recommendations: Go with the 300's if possible. The motor runs 1000 rpm less for the same speed and the top end is much faster.


Best of luck !

    motors running 1000 rpm less in normal operation is part of the equation for a longer life?

    Nit picking 10th of miles per gallon on 2 different hulls even if they are the same brand length width is negligible.
    Unless they came out of the same mold it's not a fair test.

     I thought I overpowered the boat and was concerned about the weight of the 300's.   Turned out to be the perfect match for this boat.


    Best of Luck !
