Spectre makes a great boat. I was out in OSO member Chuck (s) 30 with 496's a few weeks ago. What a gorgeous boat, and for the money? Even better! Obviously Skater is well, SKATER. It is the best of the best there is no question, but you pay accordingly. If money is no object...go Skater without a doubt. If the Spectre is more within your budgetary constraints, you surely will not be disappointed I can assure you.
