I like the 1/4 can. but the pleasure deck has a small cab. we run a boat alot. Not just poker runs and bar hoping. We go to the beach 1-2 times a week.

36 Skaters are hard to sell without #6's. Are you looking at the 36 Pleasure at Pier57? Last I knew they were pretty firm around 150k. Do not spend that much on a Spectre! I wouldn't spend that much on a non 6 Skater either when you can find one for 175k asking with 6's. If they have come way down on that Skater then maybe its a different story.

At the risk of sounding like I'm tooting my own horn...I would (and did) buy a Motion over a Spectre. The Motion will do everything the Spectre will, and, without a tunnel tab. A few people on this site with experience in both a Motion and a Spectre who have been asked have pick the Motion over the Spectre as far as handling but they are very similar, ie the Spectre is a Motion widened a little and lengthened a foot. My Motion is a #6 boat. Most of the Motions and Spectres have bravo style drives.

This is something I have noticed as well. Where most newer Skaters are #6 boats, the majority of Motion and Spectres are Bravo boats. Is it simply a different clientele looking at the different brands? Or is it the factorys pushing one drive or the other??

Different Clientele because they are in different price ranges. #6's are alot more expensive than Xr's. Skater, MTI, Nortech are building a boat to a 500k-1 million or so price point. They will have sixes with very few exceptions. Spectre, Motion, and the west coast boats are usually built to a little lower price point and usually have bravo style drives.

I don't want to sound like I am dissing the Spectre. There are ALOT of great boats out there that can be bought below 120k. ITS is a plus and I personally would pick the 525 over the 575. IMHO
