For those who want to get to the fish – or the party – in a hurry, the Intrepid 407 Cuddy is the way to go. Powered with triple 400-hp Mercury Racing outboards, she topped out at 58.0 mph.

Bluewater 2550:
Twin 200-hp Evinrude E-TEC G2 Outboards Deliver 2.5 MPG at Cruise

Bluewater 2550
Bluewater 2550

Powered with twin high-efficiency 200-hp Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboards, the Bluewater 2550 had a top speed of 52.0 mph in our tests, and got 2.5 mpg at a cruise of 26.0 mph, giving her a range of nearly 400 SM.
