HI
I would guess arround 20mph.with 2 adults aboard With any more it won't plane and goes down to about 12mph. and up goes petrol consumption.
Regards,
John.

Hi, i have a pilot 460 cathedrel hull coupled with a 60hp yam and i love it, i've owned it for 12 years and i have no intentions of parting with her yet!
It's a great fishing platform very stable with enough room for a couple to fish comfortably.
The only downside is if it's a bit choppy it does slam quite a bit and can get quite uncomfortable.
my brother had a deep "v" hull it was great when you were moving but rolled quite a bit at anchor.
Just my 2 cents!

As in you need new knees and have to see a dentist to have all your fillings put back in. :D

Great when it`s flat calm though. :)

hi johnn, wilson flyer 15ft 40hp goes very well ideal inshore. wilsons are around with inboard but are the bigger boats. how big do you want to go?
you can phone the maker of wilson flyer he is in portsmouth. are you going to tow or berth? lots of things to think about mainly what use !

regards

great in calmer weather not good at all when rough and uncomfortable when riding at anchor in any sort of rough sea
