The boat's 140-gallon fuel capacity is huge for a fish boat of this size, but it's a great advantage for boaters who want to go longer distances and not worry about finding a marina to refuel. Plus, we'd much rather go long in a dual-console boat with bucket seats and a full windshield for the comfort and protection. It helps to have a reliable motor doing the work, like the Yamaha F250 on our test boat. We recorded an economical 8.3 gph at a cruising speed of 4,000 rpm. Top speed with the V-tech hull was a hair under 50 mph. For nearshore or freshwater boating, we could see dropping down to a 200 hp motor.
