Our test craft was rigged with triple V8s, which produced a top speed of nearly 55 miles per hour. That's pretty impressive for a boat of this size and weight. Equally noteworthy was the fuel economy (38.0 gph) while making nearly 34 miles per hour at 4,000 rpm. Pursuit design engineer Eric Hess told me that performance with twin F350s was projected to be 48 miles per hour, top end, with a cruising speed of 35 miles per hour. So there's not really a huge difference between triples and twins, although when we tried to get on plane on a single engine, we couldn't quite break over.
