Bayliner Bucaneer Cruise Speed Under Power

I have a 275 bayliner bucaneer with volvo penta diesel that max revs is 2500 rpm. At cruise I run 1800 rpm and get 4.7 mph under power measured by GPS. Does this seem, slow? Wondering if changing props would really be worth it. Just had bottom done and new paint put on. Max hull speed is suppose to be 7.29 mph. Would a new prop be worth it and if so how much would I pick up speed wise at cruise?
