We were most amazed to still find out outrageous differences in fuel economy of different boats.
Bad Propeller Hits the Wallet
Usually more power means worse mileage and less power means better mileage. One suprising and rather depressing discovery of our study was to find out that sometimes boats straight from factory have so poor engine-propeller-hull combination that actually smaller engines consume more than big ones. For example 25 feet Yamarin consumes 0.4 Gallons per Nautical mile with 200 hp engine on it but much better 300 hp engine consumes only 0.3 Gallons per Nautical mile (THAT IS 25% LESS) and gives 10 knots better top speed and cruises 7 knots faster than 200 hp alternative. And this is just one example.
