That is no proof that the 60's VW is faster then the Porsche, only that it is not enough to have a fast car, it is also needed to know how to drive it. The same with the boats.
..and there are an awful lot of cruising folk out there who simply aren't all that interested in driving their boats fast - even in something like the ARC, since comfort is important too.
If you're only interested in driving fast - buy a powerboat.
