From my experience with full-scale boats, that hull design is actually not particularly good for high speed. The curve instead of a Vee up front means it won't lift out of the water properly.
You can use whatever motor you want, with the appropriate gearing and propeller geometry for the application in question. Ask around on RC boat forums, or get a few options and try yourself.
When you say "wired," what does that mean for a boat? High-current wires (16 ga and thicker) will be pretty stiff, so how could these be trailing the boat while riding around?
I googled "rc boat forum" and found lots of forums that can answer these boat-specific questions for you.
