At the helm, I found the hull so responsive that I was reminded of how much fun it is to run a boat. With perfect cruising conditions, she reached a top speed of 27.5 knots. Running at 2100 rpm, she hummed along at 25.4 knots, and with her tanks topped off at 1,982 gallons, allowing 10 percent for safety, I calculated an approximate range of 300 nautical miles. At 1900 rpm, where I noted she settled into a 21.2-knot speed, her range came in at 350 nautical miles. She tracked straight and true during my time at the wheel.
