Why bother calculating engine HP when tou could harness the wind. Renewable energy instead of polluting with exhaust but yes MF is quick undersail. I seen video clips of the Mirabella V sailing doing about 17-18 knots and it is a blistering pace to see a 240 foot yacht blitzing through the ocean like that. I would love to see the Falcon doing 24 knots in person, would be an awesome sight.
