Congrats on the new boat! Yes, it will be thirsty. That is about as big a boat as you could get up on plane effectively with the 7.4 engines. Later with the 8.1/8.2's the efficiency became much better. Make sure your hull condition is optimum, your tabs are big enough and your weight distribution is perfect. Don't carry any more fuel/water than you need. That last bit alone will save you a bunch...

A very useful gage for a thirsty boat is a Floscan that is tied to GPS.
You would be surprised how much a slight trim change can make in fuel mileage.
