Thanks for your reply! The boat weighs approx. 7,200 lbs. It is about 600 lbs lighter than a standard 33' Powerplay--because it has no cabin and no benchseat. It is a 3 man with a full stagger.
The engines are Mercury Racing HP500's that are fresh rebuilds. The engines have 8 hrs. since being rebuilt. They have a hotter cam, so the power is more like 515hp per motor. The boat has mufflers on it (by law it has to in California) so it's running approx. 82mph on GPS. It is only getting 4,900rpms with the 3 blade 29 Mirage props--this is because of the mufflers. I think a prop change would get the rpms to redline (5,250 rpm) and get speed in the 86-88 mph range. The drives are Bravo1. The engines and drives are original, they came with the boat. The boat doesn't break anything, not even drives!!
It's an awesome boat, I am selling it because we used to go ocean boating (poker runs) and now we want to have a few kids
so we need a boat with a cabin and a normal cockpit. This boat makes you feel very secure in big water. I have invested approx. $30,000 into this boat since I bought it 1.5 yrs ago. Please go to the link (at top of this page) to offshoreonly and see all the improvements I did to the boat. Please ask any other questions you may have.
Here's a picture of the staggered motors
