Better speed under power for E-32

our E-32 equipped with factory 2qm20 engine only allows us to cruise at 4knots in calm conditions. I worked on a Morgan 36 with the same engine that the owner claims will do 6 knots in calm conditions.

Does anyone know if I could change the prop to get better speed without makeing the engine work harder and or giving up good fuel consumpsion?

We motor as little as possible but at times it would be nice to have better speed.
