    Looking to purchase the boat in the title. Does anyone know the cruising/WOT speed for this setup? I recently read, I think in Bertram Literature, that she should cruise around 23 kts. This seems ambitious to me. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Keep walking. Parts and service on those Cummins is getting harder these days.
    Invest your hard earned money into a later boat that has some service life left in the engines.

    Perfect opportunity to repower with Cummins 450C remans.
