Just to clear up a few facts,
The Nor-Tech is a composite of glass and Kevlar using vinylester resin.
Although two race boats were built he have no real interest in racing, only pleasure boats.
Since the introduction of the 36 in 2003 our production line has been non stop. To date we are starting on hull # 75 and and have additional orders selling out the remaining 2008 production capacity.

You will find that there are positives and negatives to each brand. Your best bet is to go and take a ride in all three brands. I personally have driven all three and have owned two of the three. They are all good boats

The 36' Skater at our marina raced two seasons, world champion to boot, and has been converted and run as a pleasure boat for the past couple of years..... Never broke a #6, this is on 500 EFI's..

Maybe the 36's you're talking about have way more that 525hp's?

I've heard just the opposite....but that MTI doesn't ride as well as Skater in the rough.
