Hi everyone,
I visited the Wauquiez factory today to have a look at the Opium 39 - a sexy boat...

They have two available, one with 29 hp engine and one with 40 hp (Yanmars). I know it has been said in tests that it is slow under engine, at the same time Yacht had it at 5,5 knots at 2300 rpm which to me, and also as the german dealer was told by flex-o-fold, indicates a too small propeller rather than to small engine.

Any other tests that you know of saying the same about speed under engine?
