The Concept 44 Open can be powered by up to three 350-hp Mercury Verado outboards.
Concept Boats (www.conceptboats.com) displayed its updated 4400 Open before it moved onto the Palm Beach Boat Show. The boat had three 350-hp Mercury Verado four-stroke outboards that push it to 65 mph plus. The 44’ boat has a beam of 10’9” and weighs 13,350 pounds.
One of the many upgrades made on the boat is the new leaning post with a sink and bait prep station on the aft side. There’s a dedicated compartment for the Rigid Frigid cooler down low and space for additional storage. Because Concept is a custom builder, the bait prep gear can be swapped out for a grille and a blender. Up front, the bow seat has full length lounges with pop-up angled backrests and belowdecks, there’s a cabin with a small berth and a private head.
