these boats are not your typical 15knot lobster boat. you can make em go as fast as your wallet will let you. i think i read that the hot tuna had a 830 detroit and was cruing in at 22 knots. everyone always associats lobster boats as being slow but up in maine there is something called the lobster boat races and the fly around a course at 40-50 knots. its all about the HP. when you get a boat built you can put what ever kind of motor you want. most boat that are commercal lobstering arent looking for speed but rather a fuel effcient, reliable ride
