    I agree top speed is not all it's about. That said, brp HP ratings are not the only story... Many brp boats with way more hp go the same or slower than their Yamaha counterparts.

    The Scarab 255 goes in the low 50's. Larger boat than any Yamaha. Most 240/242 owners seem to hit around 50 mph or less with the occasional factory freak hitting over 50's consistently. With the new ACE engines coming out in the BRP boats they will be even better performing. Regardless I wouldn't want to drive any of these boats at those speeds in anything other than glass conditions. You'll just end up getting tossed around and guest looking at you like you're a mad man because they fear for their life lol.

    The chap 223 with twin 250’s will do 60-62. I’ve seen some guys on Facebook post pics of top speeds.

    You may be right now that I think about it I thought I had seen 60's reported here before in the past. They fly that's for sure! Of the BRP powered boats I like the lines of the Chaps the most.

    58 mph stock Chap 243 w/ the 250's. I imagine the smaller 223 would hit over 60 for sure.

    Quick comment re: AR195: Recently I had a heavier load with big cooler, 4 adults and 3 kids. Two of the adults wanted to sit up front (so like 350lbs). Wow, having the bow deeper in the water really made a difference. I was still able to go 49-50mph even with more of the boat in the water.

    So much so I am now researching a tilt nozzle or trim tabs for when I have rough conditions and 1-2 people.

    PS - I too love the speed. huge fan of SamCF and what he did with his 192, and hopefully will get my 195 to 55-60 with some mods. woot woot!!

    In a Facebook discussion occurring on new ACE equip Scarabs being delivered to Lafayette Power Sports Leonard made this statement:

    "Because of what is under those covered Scarabs You will see a 520 hp Yamaha with combined 3600 cc’s and superchargers in twin engine applications at the 2019 Miami Boat show in a 26’ 60 mph Boat!"​

    I'm not sure if any of that intel is new, but I think we can definitively say that the fun ain't over yet. Because all of the guest have yet to arrive to the party.

    Hahaha, yes this is not new. I doubt very much the 60mph aspect of it, but whatever - we are gonna need a new forum/subforum:

    "The Over $100k Yamaha Jet Boat Owners Club", lol.
