Our test boat ran verywell with a single 225-hp Yamaha, posting a cruise speed of 27knots at 4000 rpm, and hitting a wide-open 39.5 knots at 5600rpm. The 2400 has a deep-vee hull with 19 degrees of deadriseat the transom, so it handles chop pretty well. We ran it on a verywindy day in Miami's Biscayne Bay, and found that the boat would pound ifyou pushed it too hard. However, by backing off on the throttleand finding a slightly slower cruising speed, we stayed dry andcomfortable at every angle to the waves. Incidentally, the enginebracket will also accommodate twin outboards.
