Sounds about right compared to what the zx250 is doing. Might raise your plate for a little more rpm.

Doesn't sound right at all to me. 67 is unacceptable out of a 225 in my opinion.

I have a 2015 ZX225 and that is just about what I'm seeing. 68-69 by myself and 65-66 with full tournament load.

The new zx225 is a different hull. It's 19'10". Gas tank under the seat is what killed the performance. IMO.

Yeah what you need is almost a 22' boat that runs 82 with a 250

Or buy the Allison XST, their entry level boat at a very respectable price. You could put a 225 on it and run in the 80's or slow it down to an easy 70 mph and double the fuel mileage your getting now. It will ride night and day better in any type of water you want to run it in. It will near double the storage you enjoy now, and a 24 volt trolling motor is way more than efficient in them. Or stick with what ya got and be happy. I'm not trying to stir a pot, just throwing out another option that most would never give another thought, until they were in one.
