Default Pulsare 2400 Speeds

Thought I'd pick the brains of you 2400 owners. Two questions:


A) What kind of speeds do you think a Pulsare 2400 will run with a Verado 275??

B) What kind of speeds are you getting with your current setup??

Jup, you disappoint me. The questions should be:

C) What kind of speeds do you think a Pulsare 2400 would run with dual 300XS Mercs??

OR

D) With dual 400R Mercs??

It holds aprox 450lbs of fuel. Do you want loaded numbers or light fuel one person numbers?

I have a 2400 BRX & when I had the Verado 300 Pro on it my best speed alone & 1/3 tank was 71 mph, with 5 pax on board cooler & toys it did 63, with my 400R now I do 81 alone & 74 average loaded, I'm at 12" of set back. I think with a Verado 275 hp it would do 67-69 empty & 60-62 average loaded.

I followed the same path as Hayabusa going from the 300 Pro Verado to the 400R and have very similar results. Right now I'm running 78 mph with a light load, 400R, and Bravo OB/F 24P. JJG has the 2400 LD and may have some similar numbers because he also started with the 300 Pro Verado and went to the 400R. I would think 25HP amongst friends is not much of a difference when you consider how each boat is loaded.

I would agree the 2400 BRX with a Verado 275 HP should get close to 70 mph with light load.
