    This is easy because it is limited to just catamaran style hulls.

    1. Our boat 28 Howard Sportdeck.

    2. 50ft Mystic with gas motors if looking at used the Dave Scott Nautimarine boat will do in a pinch on second thought forget used I want it new.

    3. Revolution Performance Marine.

    4 Luxury Cat 70ft Sunreef or this Sebastian pictured in the photo.

    I guess it might happen--- you asked so here it is.

    That about covers it!

    KAP

    P.S. If someone knows how to enlarge the photo of the luxury cat it looks smokin hot blown up to full screen.

    Thanks! I knew you would like it Robin Leach talked me into looking at these types of boats not. Patyacht can be my broker of choice or at a minimum consultant that guy knows yachts.

    Hence the reason for the 26RPM it can go right underneath into the berth for use as a shore boat.

    When you roll in with that 70footer they know you have arrived---butler cabin personnel wheres my glass of Remy Louis XIII.

    First off, thanks for the kind words 40FD! Second, I have to admit that I am very partial to Skaters as my favorite cat, with Howard Arneson's 40' with twin GE T-58 gas trubines and ASD #8 drives as my all time favorite. That boat was WAY ahead of it's time and is largely responsible for much of the current technology found in the world's fastest offshore cats.

    As for being so partial to Skaters still to this day is that they are all great performers and the flat deck's are all so unique. Having gone through the build process with Pete and Rik on my boat, I learned that Skater and Burger King are very similar - you can have it "your way". Pete is the ONLY manufacturer to do this, even today! He will build you a boat any way you'd like it, and that is why every flat-deck Skater looks different from another. ALL other manufacturers still build their decks from a mold, therefore, the boats all look the same.

    As for performance, Pete's boats are still top performers in every class, ranging from 24' outboards to 46' turbines. I'm not saying they are all the best in any one single class, but his boats are consistently great performers across the size and horsepower range. You know when you buy a Skater that it is going to be fast for it's power, handle well and stay together! And if you build a flat deck, you can guarantee you will have a one-of-a-kind boat.

    RAYZOR , i agree 100% and having worked at Skater for over 12 years you are so very right when it comes to having it your way because it is whatever your wallet will bear and when it come's to a Skater forget the rest and buy the best SKATER ,SKATER ,SKATER , which means QUALITY , QUALITY & QUALITY !!!!!

    I believe there was a particular 368 Skater that we were both very fond of, why not on the list ?!?

    Thanks KAP for the kind words. For me, instead of posting particular boats that have been built, I think it is important to identify the manufactures that are pushing the envelope and making it so much better for us boaters. For when 1 makes something new, the others in the run, try to make it better and we, the boater capitalize off of the improvements.
    So my list would be, and not in any particular order BECAUSE I PUT THEM IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER:
    1. DCB
    2. DOUG WRIGHT
    3. ELIMINATOR
    4. MYSTIC
    5. MTI
    6. NOR-TECH (Forgot and added - Thanks Shock 'N' Awe)
    6. OUTER LIMITS
    7. SKATER
    8. TALON
