I have not been on either boat, but from a "guesstimate", this is my choice.


Skater- performance and resale value

Nortech - comfort level

Skater,faster but no cabin. What about a 39MTI?


Would a 36 Nortech break a 100 with 525's?

The first question we should ask is why the Bravos? That is going to kill resale on either of them.

Neither with Bravo drives. Buy for the future.

Agreed, no bravos!

Performance Skater.

Looks, depends on how you outfit the skater. If its a 368 with a wrap around windshield. Skater.

If not, NorTech.

Skater with # 6s,bullet proof especially since you are always in the Ocean and you know that OC is never very flat.

Nortech 36 with 525's/ Bravo's will run 108-110mph, but don't believe they will even make a 36 with Bravo's anymore, won't hold up very dangerous plus almost no resale, Skater 36 is a nice ride, a little faster, still no good with bravo's , no cabin at all, both of these boats are solid cat's, I like the looks, cabin, styling of the nortech with the windshield, just don't like the skater 1/4 canopy's but for raw speed go Skater , although a 36 nortech with 850's runs high 130's and high 120's with 700's, which would be my choice.
