Hello my name is ***** ***** I will assist you. So for your engine you should be having approximately the following consumption:

2000 rpm 8 l/hr

3500 rpm 18 l/hr

4000 rpm 24 l/hr

5000 rpm 47 l /hr

6000 rpm 67 l/hr

These values will vary according to the sea conditions and the load of people etc... on the boat but they are very close to average consumption.

If you require further assistance let me know.
