Best fuel efficient cruising speed?


Recommended Posts

I have a ‘00 Sunsetter and do almost all of my skiing (aka boating, not much for just cruising around) on a small lake.  Going to be taking a trip to Table Rock Lake soon and figuring on doing some exploring and cruising around.  I know it depends on different factors like prop and engine, but was curious if anyone had ideas on what speed they get the best fuel economy?

All planing boats have a chart that is similar to this (more or less.)  Your best MPG is idle, your best "cruise" is just after getting on plane, in my case at 26-27MPH.
