Did they get rid of the rear casting deck by chance?

There is for sure a market for it and I think there will eventually be an open version with a little higher gunnel and no rear deck. I have no idea the timeframe, but I think it is a model that would sell very well.

I can't wait to see that, I like the hybrid approach but I prefer a little less 'bay boat' decking

How useful will that power pole be on a 28' hull? I hate the way it looks bolted to that boat.

Nope. Still has a rear casting deck.

You can see pretty much the whole boat starting at 12:14 here

Fuel capacity says 94 gallons. Figure 88 usable? Is this right? That's 44 per engine. Seems a little shy to me for twins.

This version of the boat was built for shallow draft and idealy a single engine. Obviously 94 gallons is plenty when the cruise mpg is almost 4 mpg with a single 350. When they do the open version, i was told the the fuel capacity will be increased to better accomadate twins.

It will have a higher gunnel and much less deck space to create a more open floor plan. So you will still have a hybrid type boat with a shallow draft, but it will be more set up for offshore fishing vs. inshore fishing.

It does not look like a boat that would have a very large market. I could be wrong, but why twins on a hybrid bay/offshore.

While I agree with you, we have had quite a few requests for twins. I have tried to talk people out of it because the boat runs so well with a single 350, but some people have in their mind they have to have twins to go offshore, yet they need a boat with a shallow draft for various reasons. The boat was built with the ability to have twins, so the factory rigged one out so they could do testing on it.

I demoed the 28 with a 350 Suzuki and it was a nice ride and boat, but to much deck space for me. I believe I was told the draft was 17” with the 350 single which would limit me to much. Hopefully the open version will draft less with a single.

i have been told the actual draft is 15"-16", but every situation and boat is different. 17" is a safe number for sure.
