Powerboat Fuel Efficiency List

Hi,
is there a list of powerboat fuel efficiency that would contain boat model/manufacturer and the fuel efficiency of it, which would tell me how much miles per galon can the boat do ?

Thanks in advance

found just what I was looking for
Fuel Economy of 30-40 Feet Boats | Boat Fuel Consumption

if there is any other list, please post

Interesting array of numbers but you should take them all with a grain of salt (water). There are so many variables involved in fuel consumption that those numbers should not be relied on completely if you are planning a cruise. Cruising speed, weather, water conditions, condition of the hull bottom, boat weight and loading, engine tune, propeller diameter, pitch and condition, tides, wind, and current are all factors. My heavy 28' with twin Marine Power EFI gas V-drives probably gets 1.15 mpg at cruise on a good day which is about what my colleagues with similar hulls and power report.
Best thing to remember is the rule of thirds for fuel consumption, 1/3 out and back and always keep 1/3 in reserve

With the exception of two that are "close too", those are all boats that "cruise" at 20+ knots, some as high as 40.

In my book, that's not really "cruising" <d,rfc>

If you take a look at trawler types that actually "cruise" at much lower speeds, the numbers will be very different.

My 14-ton motor vessel cruises at 1.5 GPH for 4 MPG using an 80-horsepower diesel engine.
