Default Crevalle 26 questions

Been trolling the 26 bay and open threads and havent found exactly what im looking for.

Owners of the 26 bay or open with 350 Vrod and hard T top but NO 2nd station, whats your best top speed?

Do the scuppers ever back water up into the boat? Do the drains work well at rest?

Are the dry storage areas actually DRY?

When going over of thru waves,wakes does the hull fell solid with no hollow banging noises?


Thanks in advance

The boat drains pretty well and I haven't had any wet feet yet. Part of that is because the drains are set in the recessed area under the rear seat, so an inch or two below the rest of the deck. My dry storage compartments do stay dry and the hull feels solid and rides well. I can't comment on the 350 question as I only have a 300 on mine.

I get 52mph with second station, Verado 350, and half tank with a 16x17p eco enertia prop. Boat will run close to 60 with a 19p prop. Drains well and the scuppers have duckbills to prevent water back up. Hull feels solid and rides very well.

I bought a 2016 Bay 26 last Fall. I have a Verado 350 and do not have a second station. In calm water with a little engine tilt I have gotten to 57-58 MPG. Without tilting engine around 55. Regarding the ride a couple of notes. It has big trim tabs and reacts very well to using them. No stepped hull which gives you better control and allows you to drive at lower speeds better than stepped hulls. With a stepped hull I imagine would gain a few MPH. It does have a solid ride (not as solid as a SW 27 Carolina which was other boat I was considering). I have noticed sometimes with a lot of chop it sometimes has a very slight sound you referred to (emphasis on slight). I then realized it was the side panel doors that you can store your life vests and fire extinguisher and not the boat itself. I will take that light sound occasionally to have that very well thought out storage area. Have had no problems with Boat staying dry and never accumulate much water in bilge area. Feel free to contact me if more questions.
