Calling all Westerbeke 40 owners

I have a Pearson 365 with a W40 I am currrently not exceeding 2200rpm when under power but my boat speed is only around 4.8 knots. The question is can I run this engine at higher revs the rated HP is 37 at 3000rpm I have run her up to max revs to see and she will hit 3600rpm.

This boat is new to me and I have sailed her across the Gulf of Mexico from FL to TX but did not use the engine that much but now she is here in TX we will be doing much more motoring.

Any help will be appreciated.
