welcome to the zoo Marcel..
top speed really depends on a lot of of which is how heavily loaded the boat the water conditions are...winds....etc....
lets say the water is perfect...nice and smooth....the boat engine is in good tune....and lightly's not unheard of to see that boat hit about 50mph.....

I'd go with about the 50mph mark and anything over your getting a good deal..

a friend of mine has the same set-up
the 4 cilinder isnt powerfull enough for a boat of that size (not for a high topspeed)
he has a highfive prop and makes 68 kmh on gps
no more
if yopu want more give me a yell
have a 2050 bayliner with a 5.0 V8 230 bhp for a soft price for you
if you want topspeed you wont get it better

Here an owner from Holland as well, i think the boat is sold already now, cause i can't find it anymore
I have a 1900XR from 1992, probably the only one in holland... i now run it with an optimax 2003 150 and with a vengeance prop, top speed is 79 Km/h
But my boat is longer and heavier...
a friend of mine has a 1800 XR from 1990 with a 115 mercury 2 stroke with a hi-five, and it runs 72 km/h
