Thumbs up Big News From Spectre!!!- Watch Out West Coast!!!

For Immediate Release
February 22, 2006

SC Performance Purchases
Spectre Powerboats High Performance Catamaran Line-up


SC Performance Marine out of Huntington Beach, CA has recently closed on the purchase of the highly acclaimed offshore performance Catamaran line-up built by Spectre Powerboats, Pinellas Park, FL.

Both principals involved, Scot Conrad, SC Performance and Jay Pilini, Spectre Powerboats are very excited about the mutually beneficial opportunity.

The acquisition of the current performance line consists of the legendary Spectre 30’ Cat, the high performance Spectre 32’ and the race proven 36’. Conrad will take over the completion of an all-new 42’ Cat, which has a hull that has been cut by a “state of the art” CNC router. Conrad plans to work diligently on the deck design, which will be CNC finished as well. The 42’ will be offered as a pleasure version first with the option of a shaft drive with rudder steering or a conventional stern drive configuration. Conrad remains committed and focused to continue all of Pilini’s efforts for the expansion and improvement of the Spectre Powerboat Catamaran line.

Pilini’s primary focus will be on the building, growth and distribution of the all-ready popular center console Spectre Sportfish line. The current Sportfish line consists of the widely sought after 24’ and the very exciting all new 34’. The new 34’ features a roomy 10 ft beam with a 6’3” stand up head in the center console. The first of these will be built with a variety of engine configurations including Yanmar Diesel. Everyone is looking forward to the day they hit the water to see how they demonstrate and perform.

WOW a 42 cat from Spectre love to see it, I just hope it is more like the 42 MTI pleasure, w/ bolsters and cabin. I love the spectre 36 but no bolsters and no cabin on newer model

I think the new 32' Spectre is one of the best looking cats made.

With Scott's experience this should work out well.

Congrats to Spectre!

I have owned 2 of them and enjoyed the factory support and sharing the knowledge.

Look forward to seeing the 42 Spectre Cat!

The Spectre 32 is one nice cat.
