    That might not help the OP so very much either, if his budget for fuel is very low.
    As an example, my current boat, a Nord Star 28 patrol (which is for sale), cruises at about 25 knots, and uses about 1,8 liter/NM. Not a big fuel saving compared to the Fairline Targa 34 someone mentioned earlier.

    That is not much more than half what my friend's BT 35 uses at a similar speed.

    Half of a BT35? Ouch. Still more than double of what I use at displacement speed.

    Best 35 will do on plane is about 3.3l/m at mid 20s. Interestingly it is less economical at low 20s. At 6 or 7 kn it will be less than 1l/m.

    Same as my experience. Between about 8 and 22-23 knots, the fuel consumption goes way up.
    At about 7,5 knots I get about 0,9 L/NM, dropping to 0,5 L/NM at 6,5 knots.

    When the op finds what hes looking for there will be a queue behind him to buy the next one off the production line. Sadly I dont think hes going to find what he's looking for for a very long time
