What's you displacement ?

Raven is 34' displaces about 8 tons in the old imperial scale, 7 tonnes metric.

Relatively easily driven hull, fin keel.

Our Bukh DV24 is quite sufficient for our needs. Yeah, maybe I'd go up in size if buying a new one but its basically cool as. No turbo. We run a three bladed fixed prop btw. Would prefer folding but can't be bothered to pay the dosh.
