Quick-Planing CC w/56.5 MPH WOT

Pronautica 29 Open
Pronautica 29 Open

The Pronautica 29 Open planed in just 2.7 seconds, which might be evidence of the efficiency of the duo-prop system of the twin 350-hp Suzuki outboards on her transom. Her top speed, 56.5 mph, is also impressive for a center console fishing boat of this size. She has a 22-degree deadrise, and the hull is reinforced with carbon fiber. Read about the details here...

Hatteras GT45X Flybridge
Hatteras GT45X Flybridge

The Hatteras GT45X Flybridge is a serious offshore battlewagon equipped to get to the fish fast with the optional twin 1,136-hp CAT C-12.9s diesels, which delivered a top speed over 40 knots in company tests. Trolling valves take the boat’s idle speed from 7.2 knots to 3.1, ideal for presenting live baits, and the flying bridge design puts the skipper in great position to keep an eye on the wake.

Evinrude E-TEC G2 300 HP

In our tests, we find the Evinrude E-TEC G2 300 equal to – or better than – most 4-stroke engines in the mid-RPM cruising ranges on models that we have tested or surveyed. At trolling speeds and at idle, the Evinrude G2s are almost always significantly more fuel efficient. More...
