Virtually every newer CC design will be self bailing, as the manufactures are finding easier to get the more sophisticated tooling to mold proper inner-liners, deck hatches and drip rails. It also makes for easier and faster construction when it's done right.
The performance levels of CC style boats are improving every model year. It's absolutely realistic to expect your 35'-38' modern outboard CC to have equal or even better cruising speeds compared to alot of boats that we see in poker runs.

Call Mike at www.adrenalinepowerboats.com .....he builds a super strong 38 with triples and an awesome 31 with twins. Been on the 38 many times and has all of the amenities that any offshoresman would need.

The cons of a performance CC is much much much and I can;t say much enough less maintanance with the over all boat and the engines. Also shallow water is no problem even in my 38TE Fountain I can get through 2 feet of water at idle no problem. Also my gas mileage with the new modern outboards is better too. I have a 425 gallon gas tank and can cruise at 50mph for many many miles.
What did "FeverMike" mean by this? I think he meant to say that the maintenence is much less on a outboard powered CC.

Do the Concepts have a forward cuddy?

Out of the 9 boats I've owned, by far the best.
That's because you're a crazy man!

The larger ones do. The 23' & 27' do not.

Check out the Spectre 24, it's got a great layout and runs really good from what I here.

I don't see a 38 open on the website. Is it a boat that he has not built yet?

This thread got me poking through the classifieds to see whats out there. I bet an unrigged 33 powerplay sportfish would make an awesome boat. put a pair of 300x's or 300hp yamaha hpdi's, and have an offshore shop build some secure passenger seating into it. I wonder what it would run with 300's?
