I know where there is a 36 Spectre that can be bought for $65,000 with a trailer, and yes the Spectre has alumium tanks.

Never had an issue with the boat, bigger is better, it is longer and wider, plus it seats six.

I'm obviously partial to Skaters but w/o seeing the boats you are actually considering here's some food for thought.

Many 36 Spectre's will be Bravo drive boats while the Skaters more than likely #6 boats. Unless special ordered or dual helm many Spectres have Starboard helms w/ LH throttles, Skaters Port or dual helm, RH or centered throttles.

Spectres tend to have more storage.

The boat is a 1999 with HP500s that have been rebuilt. The boat will be in Baltimore in a few weeks. New interior, canopies and tires.

I am still listening...thanks to everyone....seems to be alot of good deals on these boats popping up!!! I am a little nervous w the idea of a CAT but have a bug....i already talked myself out of a 28ft w a single engine as for saftey reasons 2 years ago!!!

Any YEARS of 32+ skaters to stay away from? or a particularly good year to look for?


There is plenty of good knowledgeable people on this OSO!!! thanks for everyones help!!!
