Do you mean like this?
It goes all the way back to the actual transom. Everything else is the overhang/ swim platform.

Yes, but I can see w/ the drop in the shear you loose cockpit depth, possibly too much to fish from comfortably.

But I have to admit... its a great boat that can do a little of everything.

The boat shown belongs to Adib Mastry of Mastry Engine Center. It's his demo and available. Other than that there are none currently for sale. Feel free to contact me.

We were able to get out in this boat at Miami. Very impressive! Tons of torque. It just got up and ran. Felt like a heavy boat, it crushed the slop in government cut. I think forget the light layup, give me the weight and the ride. I was really surprised at how well the ASD's worked around the dock.

Actually a inboard boat is preferred my hardcore fishing enthusiast. Outboard can tangle your line and they are in the way back their.

I have 3 275 Verado's on my Fountain 38TE. The Fountain is a very efficient hull but at cruise 4000rpm I am going 46mph and burning around 28 GPH with an overall average of 1.4mpg. This Nortech is faster, bigger and burns less! Imagine that!

I have a Concept w-ob's they do get in the way. But nor-tchs inboards put that engie comp. between you and the back of the boat.

Not quite true. The engines are under the floor. The only thing between you and the water is a built in locker and then the molded platform. I'll have the boat here late next week and I will get some very detailed photos that will make it more clear.

Ok,
Here's some better pics to explain the layout of the engines under the floor/hatch.
After the aft leaning pad you have rod holders, the molded swim step/ platform and then a tube platform. Great for diving and you can pull the fish up right onto the platform with no obstruction.
