i've checked out the rigging on various eliminators and they seemed rigged for general/family use; entirely appropriate but not quite skater/nortech/mti standards.

Have owned and sold Nortechs both, the 36 is a great all around cat, very solid hull, handles great, has unique styling, and is much faster than most people think, with merc 850's runs 137mph, It has a nice cabin with a queen berth, a head, sink, shower, and sofa, It can also be bought with air conditioning, resale is very strong, I would buy another 36 no problem, The MTI is also a super cat, top notch quality, and smoking fast, now have a six seater available, cleaned up in its race categories last year, high dollar, hold their value the best of all listed. Skater is a long time winner all around, takes quite a while to get one new, now have full windshields, alot better than the canopies, high dollar, Spectre, Motion, Eliminator , good cats for less money not as good in rough water as the others, smaller beams, freeboard, and can be ran with bravo's as the other 3 really need 6's and can handle bigger power, my experience and opinions, have driven all except the eliminator

What price range are you looking at?Could narrow the search.

Ive owned Warlock,ShadowCat,Skater and have never needed a cabin for my kids.If you need a cabin go V with some nice head room and A/C because without it you will never use it in the summer.
