Its all in the set up.its basically the exact same bottom as the 26' American Offshore, 25' Talon, etc etc. Great in the rough water, takes BIG power to make them move. A buddy of mine had a 26' AO with about 750/800 blower motor hp and the boat ran 101 - 103 GPS. Put that same power in a 25' Daytona 110 ~ mph. put that in a HTM = 115 ~ Mph.
