Hi Everyone, I just purchased a 1995 Cabrio 280 and love it but have a few questions that I can't seem to find an answer for. What is the  size of the gas tank, depth of draft and  speeds able to reach. We just took a long trip and I was only able to sustain 10-14 knots, I think that is a little slow. I am new to boating and am still getting use to trim tabs but if there are any other 280  single engine owners who could give me a few pointers I would appreciate it.

Larson has a archives page, that boat will hold 125 gal. of gas, the draft is 31", depending on your motor, and your max RPM there should be a sticker with that info on the valve cover. You could have the wrong prop. I have a 1984 Larson 25' Delta Sport Cruiser and was only able to get 22 mph, till I changed the prop, now I get 34 mph.

Here is the link to Larson's archives page http://www.larsonboats.com/_download/_brochures/1995.pdf

just scroll down the page till you see your boat the info will be there, its a little hard to see.

Good luck.

Thanks Denebuff,

 

I had the Cabrio out the other day, calm lake and was able to get 31 knts at 4000 rpm, out of it. Not sure why it worked so well this time. On our maiden trip there was 4 adults and 2 kids plus supplies, perhaps we were too heavy. I have the Brovo 3 drive and like I said, it worked very well the other day. I guess I just need practice qand more time on the trim tabs.
