Default Redesigned 2005 Skater 24'

Was checking out listings on the Lake Cumberland Marine website and I noticed a 24 quarter canopied Skater on there. Really kool looking with the new lines of the Skater Cats. Here are some pics. There was no price listed for the 24. Enjoy and congrats to Peter and the rest of the crew at Skater for redesigning a classic.

Having the cut down deck probably improves visibility a lot when you're all trimmed out and screaming across the smooth water.

But, I think it makes the boat look pretty ugly from the side.

Maybe it would look better in the water.

I bet that boat runs quite fast. That looks awesome, wonder if they will change the 28?

Looks like it could stuff very easily.

Its the decks that changes, not the hull.
It is a bit of an odd look though.

I am sure that Peter has a reasoning for the slope design. I would tend to think that the slope actually makes the boat more like a wing as that is what the tunnel basicly is. You can see that he does the same thing on a few of the other models.
