    That is a beautiful boat! All rigged out and on a trailer, it had to set the new owner back more than $200k. The OB version makes a great recreation boat. A friend of mine had the standard deck version w/ 300XS's on it and it ran a best of 104. As for those 400 hp motors....... I keep hearing all these stories, but I've never heard of anyone running any big numbers with the XS motors. The 300X is still the faster motor - no matter what you do to the XS. Though I'd rather have the XS to save half the fuel! Awesome rig and I hope he posts on here so we hear how it runs!

    This boat is the boat going to the Miami boat show as one of Skater's in-water show boats. These motors are supposedly some brand new Mercury motors rumored to be around 400 horsepower. It all sounds too good to be true! I know that when I ordered my 30 Skater (#1) back in April of '04, Mercury was heavily rumored to be coming out with a new 400 horsepower outboard motor. Stepping up from my 28 with 300s, my original intent was to build my 30 as another outboard boat with these new 400 hp motors. However, when these rumored 400 hp motors never appeared, I decided to go with the Sterling/Arneson setup. If these really are 400 hp motors and they've kept the weight down in the current XS range of 500+ pounds, this boat will be AWESOME! I'm guessing it should run a best of around 120 mph with a solid 90 - 100 mph cruise. Great, great boat! BTW - after talking to Rik, it is verified that this boat on a trailer is well into the $200k+ range. You get what you pay for!

    I would take this boat at say +/- $275k any and every day over either the 28' Eliminator Speedster ($451K) and any of the 31' and under DCB's, I'm just sayin'....
    In fact, I am calling Skater to confirm pricing as I may just order up one of these...

    As much as i love Skaters and a previous multiple owner , they are a pretty basic boat IMO , i sold my last 30 a little while ago and havent jumped back into another bigger boat yet??.

    sent an e-mail (w/picture) inquiry about the price of a similarly equipped boat, guess we will see what the response is.
