I just bought one. A fixer-upper, but she is good. I think she can move along between 8 and 9 knot/hr. for fuel economy. A Detroit Diesel chart I came across shows best fuel economy at 900 rpm. I saw cruising speed is 24 k/hr. The notes I found in my boat shows 1 gal/nm fuel consumption. I like the boat as they did not try to cram a third cabin in her. Two queen bed staterooms is perfect. Additional guests can sleep on the dining table and anywhere in the salon.
