I'm about to purchase a '99 26' Sundancer. She has a 2006 5.7 L, 2 barrel carb, BR2. Some people are telling me she's underpowered. I have a Sea Trial scheduled, but does anyone have any thoughts on this one? Thanks,

I have a 268 Sundancer with a 7.4 (454) 330 hp and I would not have any less then that.  My boat is 27' without the pulpit or swim deck, it will cruise at 28 with a top speed of 40 running at 4600 rpm wot and 3600 at cruise with a 17 pitch prop.  It depends on what you will do most, if you plan on pulling a skier on one forget it. With that size boat you will really work that 5.7 to death. On mine if I have a full tank of fuel (100 gal)and a full water tank (30 ga) and mybe half a holding and 4 people on board she will take a bit to plane.

That engine is common in that size boat, and most people find it satisfactory.  It is not underpowered. If you want to go 40, it probably will not do that. But you should still get a 20+ cruise.  You may want to check the outdrive though. The Bravo II is designed for large heavy boats. I'm not sure it's best for this. But you may be looking at a Bravo I, which could work fine.

Well by now I would quess that you have "sea trialed" the boat and know about it's power. I had until yesterday a 260 DA with a 5.7 L 260 HP Mercruiser in it and a B1, 4 barrel Carb. At 7800feet alt. I could get 22 mph GPS out of it. And real good MPG. It had the 100 Gal. tank. We really like the boat but is wasn't big enought for what we wanted to do. And any thing else would be to big to trailer. Bummer! We still have a Sea Ray 2006 175 now to pull behind the 5th wheel.
