This Gladiator is for sale in the in the OSO classifieds. This boat has to be seen to show how beautiful it really is. The owner is HOTDUCK form this board. He is from Ocean City, Maryland . I believe the boat is still at Tres Martiins shop in Ft Lauderdale, Fl.

For the same reason:

Fountain 38 owners don't
OL 37 owners don't
Pantera Survivor owners don't
Formula 382 owners don't
Apache 36
ect. ect. ect.

Maybe you can compare a 36 Skater to a 36 Nor-tech or a 36 MTI

Get real

I believe nearly all the 36’ Gladiators come with Bravo’s and the Skater does not, according to his description of the boats he is looking at.

Being that and the fact that the Cig’s typically run in the low 90’s with the same 500 ish power, the Skater (115 ish) will be the faster boat even in the rough. The Cig will have to slow to stay in the water and to keep the drives under it but the Skater will have to slow even less than that as it does not have the weaker Bravo’s. (The deep tunnel helps a lot also)

Now change the drives in the Cig to SSM#6’s. But how fast is the boat then? The negatives of the drives will offset the rough capability as the speed will suffer dramatically more than the drives can make up for in durability.

Hands down you can not compare Cats vs V-bottoms which you are trying to do in this thread. Both are great boats. A cat no matter what is going to be faster then the V-bottom with the same power. I think you will have to be more accurate with your? Such as what kinda of things you are looking to do with the boat and so forth.

The guy is deciding between a 32 Skater and a Gladiator, That is why we are comparing the two boats. I guess some people don't read the entire thread.
