Ocean Runner 29 CC
Ocean Runner 29 Center Console

Twin 300-hp Evinrude E-TEC G2s delivered some serious performance on the Ocean Runner 29 Center Console, with a 3.6-second time to plane and a top speed of 57.6 mph -- enough speed to put her at the front of the fleet in many offshore tournaments. The fuel-efficient two-strokes got 2.0 mpg at 27.9 mph, giving a 400 SM range. See what else our test captain found out about this boat-and-engine package...
