It looks like a performance boat. 2 works better than 3. To go fast, you need to push the water backwards fast, to go faster, that means spinning the same prop faster, or a steeper pitch on the prop. Both those need more power. Adding an extra blade will use more power, but probably not usefully. There is a trade between final speed and acceleration, user choice.
