When you’re building a SeaVee, the brand of motors you choose to hang is up to you. In the case of the 430SE, that choice includes triple or quad outboards between 300hp and 400hp, as well as twin inboard diesels turning tunneled props or Volvo’s IPS® pod drives. With quad outboards expect a top speed somewhere between 45 – 50 mph depending on boat layout and load. Inboard diesels yield a top speed of 40 mph and a cruise of 35 mph, while pod drives push the 430’s top end up towards 45 mph.
Top speed and range may vary significantly depending on sea conditions and load
