So just for the sake of conversation here what is the target price for this 28 footer, assuming it's to be a single engine rig, with say a Merc 525 XR ITS Sportmaster set up? Keep it simple, basics and no 50K paint job, where does it land on the old dollar meter?

Forget the cool factor of an arneson.......the boat is cool, thats enough. I'd be putting the most popular engine package for 28-30 footers so you have a realistic comparison. Putting up big numbers in these conditions will put out the biggest statement to the public.

Merc 700/ NXT drive...
150K cost...

I dont think Outerlimits has the current production capabilities to build enough... there would be a waiting line... the things would sell like hotcakes!

Every one you built would be sold before it barely got started being built.

Otherwise put a 525 with a Bravo XR Sporty package, it's a 28' boat which means that you need to be somewhat competitive with price/options/power/drive(s). If you start mucking up the power/drive package people will just gravitate to a bigger boat because they'll be in that price range anyway. If you put the bigger power/bigger drives on it then I think you'd shrink your pool of buyers for a 28' boat.

The 700 would deffinately be optional, the target price of 150k would be based on 525's or the Ls package.

For a normal boat builder, I'd have to agree with you. BUT, I think in Outerlimits case the price is not as big as an issue as it would be with comparable 28-30 footers. I would just expect that someone buying a 28 outerlimits probably already has one, which is obviously within the 37-52ft range. The 28 would be a great boat for these owners that get home from work, take the cover off and go for a quick ride. Easy to launch, clean, flush and trailer for one person.
