Under power. Max speed under sail can be more, depending on the conditions.
This is generally correct. Do be aware that most of the time they compute max speed based upon the simple water line formula. Almost any boat can exceed that when surfing, and some boats (high performance race boats) will certainly exceed their hull speed.

I would not put too much stock in max speed. It is just a generality. More important to realize that in general speed is based upon water line, where some boats will perform better than others.
