To add to the question about why outboards, (Susan pretty much covered it) but I'd like to add that you can put many many more hours on an outboard than a big block. With the Concept 30 closed deck you have a boat with twin engines that if one engine breaks you still have one to get you home, this boat will do about 80, you can put around 3-4 times the hours on outboards over I/O's and you can get into shallow water with outboards were a I/O can not. To me boats like the Concept 30 closed deck are much easier to own.
I agree! On smaller boats less than 30 ft, or center consoles, they're an excellent option. Pretty much trouble free operation!

When you get into bigger boats I feel you need the torque of an inboard motor or you have to start putting 3 or even 4 motors on the back.

Concept, very nice boat by the way!

The 30 enclosed Concept is Sexy and brings back the 80's VICE days to me.
I know this was the first boat but I do believe the interior needed alot of work and re-developement. The rear seat bolster were cheap looking and the arm rest looked like glued on "wrap arounds" and then covered. More attention to detail and finish on the interior.
Hull and engines look really good .

Just got back to the office. Thanks to all the OSOers that came by the display.
Here's a few close ups of "Miss Aqua Doll" from Monday.

The cockpit interior will have more attention to detail before the boat is released for production.
There will be optional rear bench lounge seating, walk up dash to reach the bow and lay in cockpit carpeting.
The Focus was, introducing this exciting new 30 at the Miami Show and enter offshore performance market as a prodominate player.
