How many hp are recommended for a Liberty 440?

How many hp are recommended for a Liberty 440?
Length 4,40 m
Width 1,75 m
Wight 275 kg



I use it to go around in the weekends, not too far. I don't need high speeds, just to move the boat kindly with 5, 6 people on board.

Could you give me a range, i.e. between 10 and 15hp?
On the website they say no more than 15hp: Liberty 440

thanks

with the weight of 5-6 people I would think you'll want all 15 hp. Otherwise a 9.9 might do, but why?
