I think that the fact that you guys are introducing new models in these economic times is a sign of outerlimits ability to stay on top. I realize there are other companys doing the same but my hats are off to them as well. great looking boat! Goodluck with it

...Love the twin small block idea. Light and fast, reliable and no need for Sea Tow!

Stand up bolsters or sit down comfort with leg room?

I see it has a fancy smancy hatch. Atleast have an optional standard hatch with cushions so the average family is not stuck inside the cockpit like a prison when parked.

Also needs to have an option for twin BIG BLOCK engines.

IMO it should be setup as a family boat. Lets be real, if someone wants to buy a 90+mph boat, most are going to want something bigger than 30ft.

Deck looks just like the Apache rebel

That is the way I voted.. But I prefer twins, possibly small blocks, higher reving ..... with the asd-7's.. Candy Apple Red, black, pearl white and silver accents..and my cockpit White carbon fiber with red and black carbon fiber accents..Myco trailer...and hurry up cause I want to go boating this year....by June 1st....Good looking design..

The option for twin bigblocks is self defeating. Per the previous post "if somebody us going to by a 90+ mph boat, they are probably going to buy a bigger boat". This boat will go 90 + with a single 525, there is no need for twin big blocks, that would defeat the purpose of a well balanced, affordable boat.

I would like to see the LSA small block or a 525 & an Arneson or a Ilmore/Indy package.
Bravo's are just too easy to break.

With a 28' boat I would go with the Ilmor 650 and Indy Drive,
The 525 and NXT drive would be the reliable package and not have to worrie about the XR...
But the weight of the Ilmor and Indy drive will save you over 400 lbs and you would get more HP and have a bullet proof package also...not to mention the bad A$$ sound of the V10....

Very interested it that...

My first boat was a Donzi Z-25 with a single 454 Mag. It was a great boat. I think sticking with a single motor is the way to go. Absolutley make room for a sunpad.

Weismann Marine has built a 650hp small block and is testing a new twin-prop surface drive. Pat has avoided the Blackhawk issues and this drive makes the boat run straight. It can also be run as a single prop setup for twins;
