I agree that 15 pitch is way off!!! If you look at the test done on suzuki.com with the diff boat you can get a pretty good idea on which prop you will need!!!!!
I have a 24.6 boat with the same setup you are rigging and I went with 14 X 19 props!!!! ask the dealer to let you try diff props to find which work best for you!!!
That is what I would do!!!!

Here are some test results for a 25 Aquasport using 14x22 props. The results are inpressive. I'm running the same props on a 23 YF with DF140's.

I have Grady White 252g with twin 140 Suzuki's. the dealer put 20'' ss props on it and that seems to be right. He said I should be looking for a WOT rpm between 5800 and 6200 rpm. WOT with these props is 5950 which is just about right. That figures out to 41 mph (by my gps) and 5 gals per hour each (5 gals per hour at normal running speed which for me is around 3800-4000 rpm or 28-30mph. I have no idea how much fuel I would use at WOT but I bet it would be a lot). As far as the hole shot goes. What does that mean? I throttle up easy. Just my way I guess.
