    They should....if they are geared and propped correctly.

    If they are the smaller 4 cylinders, I think they will be working pretty hard.....for 18000#, I think there are 'better' options available...

    thank you for the info they are 4 cyl turbos but i am paying 10k each for remaned no hours, all new other like alternator water pump ect and transmission's --- i think is a good deal. wont be as fast but will still cruise around 20 knots i think am i in the ball park. i am loosing 2000lbs replacing the crusaders and i removed the generator so i am around 15 k now. what do you think again thank you

    Boat is heavy but yes a pair of 225's will get you up on the plane I would expect. What engine model are they?

    I have the 41B engines in my 12000 lb boat. Great engine. 200hp each. Some minor mods were made.
    I run A6 props. You might consider A5 props. I get 35 mph top end at 3900 rpm loaded. Cruise at 30 mph
    at about 3400 rpm. Very economical and reliable. No rubber hoses or plastic like the P model all metal
    with O rings. Only question is your description was of a 4 cyl and the 41B is a 6 cyl?

    Hi cannot thank you enough. i have the 6 cyl 41b, my mistake saying the 4 cyl. so after your experience i feel much better
    my logic was getting me take out 2 crusader 454 at 350 hp and replace with twin 200hp makes no sense buttttt they are diesel and higher torque, so i got them again thank you so much for your input
