Where this boat truly shines is when she’s pushing herself to the ragged edge of performance. During my wheel time, I took the twin ZF single-lever controls and flattened them to the pins. The optional 1,550-horsepower MAN 12-cylinder diesels quickly spooled up in sweet synchronicity at 2,330 rpm, which is well within the 2,300 rpm rating, as the 55 shot in the direction of those calling canyons. (MAN 1,400 hp diesels are standard, and 1,800 hp MANs and 1,625 hp Caterpillar C32s are also options.) I checked the center 17-inch screen of this boat’s three-display electronics setup, featuring the optional Furuno NavNet 3D system, and noted the speed on the GPS: 42 knots!
