That thing looks huge, kind of a cross over for a CAT.

Wow, kudos to them for pushing the design envelope! There are allot of things to take in when looking at the pics.
With an outboard setup, it appears that the rear steps become a bit of a moot point, as with outdrives you have a tie bar to step on to get you up onto the first step. Also, not sure how you get up on these steps. A guy would probably get used to it, but that windshield setup, in my opinion, is probably more unique than what I would like.

Cats usually have something like a 14* deadrise angle. You would need about a 2.5-3 midsection difference between motors for them to sit evenly with correct x dimension to the bottom.

verados come in 5 midsection increments and this appears to work correctly for 24* deadrise with normal distance between motors.

So a quad setup CC uses the Shadow controls for controlling the motors jointly or independently for mostly docking situations. Given the cat hull, and the distance motors are separated, seems like normal DTS would be a fine setup. And look a LOT better.

That cockpit brings to mind the delta wing race car.

so basically the outside motors are shorter lowers but too short so they dropped them a little to get the right height
