Does any body have any experience with repowering any of these 44's and getting a decent cruising speed out of them. Most of the ones I have looked at had 892's in them and were 9-10 knot boats. I know they were overbuilt and are heavy hulls. I also know that Detroit 892's are heavy engines.

I worked on a 44 for few seasons that had a 460 lugger in her with something like 10,000 hours. we would easy cruise offshore @10-10.5kts at about 1mpg give or take. No floscans but we ran her enough to get good idea the fuel burn. To go 16+ knots i would say you need some big HP. She was a wicked good seaboat. The more weight on the boat the better she rode and hauled. wasn't too bad to work on backdeck compared to few other boats i been on in 20kts wind in the 40 foot range. In my eyes the 44 Stanley is a great work boat not ideal for sport fishing if you want go fast. reminds me alot of the 39bhm I'm currently working on. Heavy beasts. I believe the stanely i used to work on is up for sale.

curious to see if anyone has any high horsepower reposers in these boats, were looking to re-power mine with something between 700hp and 1000hp. geared down for towing.
