WOT achieving 15 mph

Sea trailed a 1989 Gibson Std. 42 foot 12 foot beam with Crusader 305's (220 hp)
tach gages erratic but I think it only achieved about 2800 rpm on port in helm and showed 4000 on bridge. Starboard gauges dead but synced up and tracked straight. Obtainable topspeed was 15 mph. Does this sound reasonable for this size boat engine combination. Engines have 770 hrs on them start right up, idle smooth no smoke
