I voted eliminator because i like having a cabin and the eliminator has a nice cabin for a cat. They are very well built boats. But if money was no object and i wanted to go 150 plus i would have to go skater.

36 eliminator - canopies, 112 mph on 525's with bravos. and a nice cabin almost within your price range NEW.
36 skater - canopies, 110mph with 575's and bravos, no cabin, better quality? stronger? resale? a 2000 should be in your price range.
36 pantera - what is it even doing in this poll? slow (campared to cats) and youll be lucky to get it within a year of the delivery date.
I've been in a 28 eliminator at 98mph. great smoothe ride. took 2 ft wake like nothing. i can only image the 36 was better. the skater looks like it has more freeboard and may be better in the rough stuff. I would love to ride in both back to back to compare.

My vote would be a 39 MTI but there are none available even close to 250k.

36 Skater with 500 EFIs, #6s in race trim (read APBA HEAVY) runs 110. With Bravos it's much faster. In big water there is no other cat under 40' that will stay with the 36, PERIOD. If you want to boat day in and day out with minimal maint then I would do 600s with #6s. It's a package you'll never break and you'll out run most every boat out there.

I got to look at the Skater up close and It is nice as it gets. The two guys were from colorado and pulled it down for the Grand Lake Poker Run. The Guy driving said they got up to 128 and still had throttle. I think they were new to the boat.
