    I found that if you go to Mercury's Website and then to their prop selector program you can enter your boat weight, motor, prop and it'll spit out your top speed. I did mine and it was accurate within a half mile per hour. Mine is a deep vee bottom and I don't recall if the pontoon is different, there may be a pontoon option. It'll also give you some options for a different prop and what they will produce as far as top end speed.

      I went and plugged your boat in with the basic info of length and motor and it said 22.2mph was the top speed.

        Welcome to iboats!!!Pontoons are not notorious for being speed demons, they are more of a "take a bunch of people on a cruise around the lake" kind of watercraft. Most that I've passed with a 60 HP or similar seemed to be going about 18 or so.Sit back and enjoy your cruise!!! Find a buddy with a speedier boat if you want to do some watersports, everyone else can hang out on the 'toon while others take turns on the wakeboard! That's not a bad deal!
        The wetter, the better.
