Question Skater vs Mti

Let's hear people opinions on the comparison between a 40 ss and 42 rp . Speed, handling, rough water performance and looks. I still like my 36 Nor-tech but i think I'm ready for the next step in technology and performance.

I believe the Skater 40SS is a Higher, 5 Step bottom designed for rough water offshore use. I like that!

Let's keep in mind they would be 06 or 07 models. Don't have the coin to blow on a brand new model.

I have to go with Skater.

MTIs are sweet boats, but I just like the style of the Skater much better, havent driven either yet, but I just like how custom Skaters are. Just my opion of course.

skaters way to go been in as small as a 24 with 2.4s and big as a 46 with turbines .I thought mti was a splashed skater built over in the mid east in the late 90s. art ps I could be wrong.

Thumbs up phat boy

i previously owned a 42 rp with 1075 power and loved it. i currently own a 40 ss which is actually a cut down 46 skater. both are awsome. the 40 ss has the edge in rough water, but other than that they r both awesome.
