Maximum Horsepower

by Jay
(MGW, WV)

Curious to know why boat builders are limiting higher horsepower engines on new stern drive boats. I would like to purchase a Crownline 215ss with a 6.2 Mercruiser 350 engine and the largest engine I can buy is 300 hp. I own a Crownline 202BR (which is 1000 lbs. lighter) with a 350 mag / 300 hp engine. I don't want to buy a similar sized boat that won't perform as well as my old one.
