Seems kinda cheap for a skater with twin inboards and I've heard its been for sale for awhile. Anyone know its history or anything about it? Wondering if its something to avoid.
Boat was at LOTO for years... Originally had 540's w/ prochargers I believe. Boat was sold new and rigged by Gruningers Performance Marine in Pontoon Beach, Illinois.

Skater has stopped building boats with Bravos years ago. THEY WILL BREAK!!! Not if, but when. Breaking a drive at high speed can be dangerous. Do the math. Used Bravos are 10k a pair. Used Number Sixes are $50k. Shogren's 32 Skater with the Sixes is a bargain. It also has 700EFI power. It also has 1/4 canopies!! Anyone that has run a boat over 100 mph for any length of time will never buy a boat without wind protection. Cats with Bravos and no windshield are a tough sell to informed buyers.

That's your boat? Its badass for sure! I saw the ad online and it took me an hour to stop going over it. Its not that I wouldn't love Shogren's Skater thats for sale but I just can't swing that kind of money right now. Got alot of irons in the fire right now and I don't wanna stretch things too thin My wife also dipped into my boat fund a few months ago to buy a new Lexus RX350 cause "we need a SUV for Mikey" (my newborn)
