Hi

I am thinking of buying a Birchwood 25. It has a Transit 2.5D inboard engine fitted. I know nothing about these engines but am I right in assuming it will do about 8knots (10mph). I am going to be using it on inland coastal waters, maximum 2 miles offshore, and am not sure if the engine is ok.

many thanks for your time

It does not have a sea going hull and unless a flat calm prevails..........stay inland.

Hi

Thanks for that. I have also seen a Birchwood 22. It is semi planing hull and has a Volvo Penta petrol engine. Would this be better for the coast

thanks again
