What RPM’s are you cruising at with those 90’s and those numbers?
It isn't easy to arrange flat glass panels to match a curved profile.I know Irens designs have been mentioned here, but I can't remember if "Wilhelmina" has featured. Irens sums up the point of this thread:
“I’m on a personal crusade to help people understand that there doesn’t need to be this huge cultural divide between a sailing boat and a well-designed motorboat,” he says. “I believe a motorboat can give you a real sense of well being in the same way a good sailing boat does.”
To my eye the windscreen aesthetics could be tweaked a little.
The transom hung rudder is surprising. 0.4lph at 11kts is impressive. 25hp Beta on a 31' powerboat! Very cool.

Hmmm, they spent a lot of time on that deck to windshield design. I personally think it might look better with a 3 piece curved glass arrangement. It
It’s cool to see an old school transom hung rudder and stepped deck sheer though!
The figure I quoted is 0.4 Litres per mile, not per hour. A "94 nautical mile passage [...] at an average speed of 11 knots" is 94 / 11 = 8.54 hours; 37 Litres / 8.54 hours = 4.33 liters per hour.0.4lph at 11kts is impressive.
That looks like the perfect Catalina boat.
Interesting it has to use a stabilizer while at anchor.
Did I see Sarissa on SF Bay this last weekend watching SailGP?That looks like the perfect Catalina boat.

25kt, 4-5nmpg. Amazing if true.
