It has a 5.0L and the boat has a sweet spot at about 3600 RPM. it seems to come off plane a bit at around 3000RPM. I'm curious what RPM other 2655 / 5.0L owners cruise at ?

Also, what does your temp run. Normally it is around 175, it went up to about 180 while trollig at 2000 rpm. and would drop to 160 when geeting back to plane and would then go back to 160. Is this normal or is my water pump in the outdrive starting to fail?


Ww have a 1998 2655 as well with the 5.0. Here in the Columbia River I usually can cruise at 3700-3800 rpm for the best fuel economy. I installed a Floscan fuel meter last year and it has helped to find the best cruising speed. As for the temperature ours runs about 175 at all times.

I just completed installing my new 2009 VP 350 300HP w/ 1;195 DP outdrive. This is twice the engine my prior 460 330 HP w/ King Cobra outdive was. Twice as quick out of the hole, Two miles the gallon, Cruises from 3200 rpm @ 22 mph, To 3800 rpm @ 28 mph and top speed is 38 mph. As you can tell I love it and did it all myself. Gary

So I bought the 88 2655 that Golfnutt has advertised in the "for sale" section.
Towed it home today, Note to self- being used to a Ciera 2155- 2655 = Big D#*$ boat lol.. wow. Alot bigger.

He gave me a great price on the boat and it is as clean as it looks in the pics and just as advertised. Nice guy too.

Anyway. I will be updating this boat as I did to my 2155 as soon as I can some warmer weather.
Will strip all decals off, very good buff out and cleaning, redo arch uphostery,
replace the teak rails, carpet it on the sunbridge like my 2155 as that was a great upgrade on that boat, build an aft bench like the 2155, replace the hatches, and minor details. The upholstery in this boat is in fantastic shape and the color is great, dash is clean, gages clear, deck very clean, all new canvas and many upgrades already done.

The greatest thing of the whole experience over the past couple of days,
When I got it home my wife came out, in 30 degree weather all bundled up
and jumped in it for an hour with me to dream about summer for a bit.
She, never being too emotional about things, gave me the nod of approval and said " I like how much more room we have in this boat" so, thats a WIN !

Neighbor and I have a '96 2655 Ciera w/ 5.7L MerCruiser and Alpha 1 outdrive. Still in the shakedown mode as we purchased it last month and then some idiot ordered winter. Snow, ice, freezing temps., etc. Been on the water only once, but it was a hoot. Beautiful boat and we've heard nothing but good reports. Talked with the salesman who sold the boat originally. We're the second owners.

She's been renamed. Neptune/Poseidon have updated the ledgers and received the legendary Champaign. So did the captain, admiral and crew. :)

Extended swim platform is the most expensive addition yet, want to get A/C and genset some day. I'm going to Afghanistan for a year, any advice on storing it for that long? I have a boat cover and it will be in a barn.

1992 2655. I've had small bow riders and cuddy cabins before but my 2655 is HUGE in comparison. Got a great deal on it mid June. I think the prop is wrong as with a good tune up it only gets up to around 3600 rpm's WOT but still runs great. Needs some minor cosmetic work like a good buffing and repair to L seat(rip in back) and fresh water pump but all in all it's a great boat!

Hi,

we puschased a 1992 2655 Sunbridge with
Merc. 5.0 V8 and Alpha One Gen 2. 280 hours.

Great boat so far except for the upper swivel pin that leaks and the fuel consumption (approx. 1,2 MPG).

Tom

Hi Gus,
We bought a 1989 2655 Cierra Sunbridge last spring. 460 OMC. We sold a 30' sailboat last winter. It's been a sticker shock on the gas bill, but still less that what we were paying annually for moorage with the sailboat (trailer the 2655). Since they didnt consider the bowpulpit or swim platform in the legnth, the 89 is actually about 30' and very beamy - over 9.5'. I'm liken it! We live in NE WA state, so summer boating season is almost over. Just thinking about what I will do for winter storage.

The previous owner took out the dipstick, left the sleave, and installed an oil pump for quick oil change. So I'm still searching for parts to re-attached the dip stick sleave. Any help on where to find those parts would be greatly appreciated.

Also will need to re-seal the side windows and top hatches. Hope to find some info on how to do so in a quality manner.

Great boat!
Fred
