seems a little underpowered for a boat of that length. but hey it would get good mileage per gallon.

I'm no expert on this particular boat.

I’d guess it depends on how you intend to use her.

I'd think for cruising with all the stuff that goes with it and for getting out of trouble in heavy seas the engine seems a bit small.

For fair weather day or coastal sailing it may be fine.
