It looks like they are jets - so the engine will under the console and the helm stands over the jet / jackshaft. The hull would be deep enough to sink a fair bit of the Yanmar - it's not an overly tall motor.

By the time they've had to re-engine them to make up for the weight increase due to the ever changing / increasing specification, the 225k will seem like a bargain.
