Was looking for anyone on the forum that might own a 410 Sport Bridge and has Diesel engines. Would like to know the fuel burn rate and cruise speed.

Also any likes or dislikes

How is it in chop and rough seas.

Thanks

Saw your post about engines, so I understand more now. With our Cummins,,and a heavier boat, I can cruise at 20kts, and burn about 31gl/hr. We have more weight in the stern than a 410, and I have box tabs, to give me as much lift as possible. Since fuel increases we take our time, and enjoy the ride. Burns very little fuel at 10kts. That is a slight bump above idle.
We have been in some unexpected horrible weather of lg. breakers,bow dipping stuff, and the boat handled very well. Chop isn't a problem at all. Following seas are probably the most uncomfortable. Mostly Bay boating for us//been to Hilton Head and back,but has been a great boat for 10yrs. old now.
