SKATER 588

In process right now is an “Extreme Skater”.  As usual, this is an original design for the “Ultimate Cat”, a running length of 54’8” would make this hull the largest yet produced. The goal of this vessel is to achieve unsurpassed performance with 2 or 4 engines and a fuel range in excess of 500 miles while transporting 8-10 people across the most challenging seas. The 548 has the same unique hull design as the 438 which has proven itself to be the most efficient, load carrying cat of all time running up to 180mph with a full load of fuel and passengers with the Mercury 1350’s.  Quite an achievement.
