Biggest engine that can fit on a P 23?

Postby Steamboat07 » Sat Jun 18, 2016 8:44 pm

First time sailing purchase boat came with 5 HP motor. I'd like to go up to 25 HP but wasn't sure if that was too much power for the boat? I didn't see anything in the specs regarding how much max power can go safely with the boat does anyone?
know?

Why do you think you need 25HP? I do fine with a 6HP Tohatsu Sail Pro. In most conditions it drives the boat near hull speed. Larger motors add a lot of weight on the stern which will affect the boat's balance. Unless you expect heavy water or current I'd suggest something smaller.
