Fifty Shades of Grey, Skater Style

Is this fifty shades of grey, it very well may be and we will double check with the paint designers. But Skater is, with this 50 feet of fulfillment (as Christian Grey says in Fifty Shades of Grey), “Raising the ordinary to extraordinary”.

Skater's All New 478 Raised Deck Vee

As we spend time at Skater watching custom boat after custom boat being built, every once in awhile a completely new design floors us. This has happened recently, as you are aware, with the Pure Platinum 388, the 50' Shades of Grey, and the all new 318 wide-body outboard currently beginning its rigging process. Now, Skater has done it again. The new 478 we have watched for the past 8...

Bobkat Offshore Racing "STIHL" 2015,...

A couple weeks ago we had the opportunity to chat with Bob "JR" Noble, Mark Kowalski, and Dave Hutchinson while they were visiting Skater to check up on both of their team's boats.

The current boat, damaged in Key West as most will remember, was almost ready to take home for final...

There are also several questions begging to be answered. Like: What is more...

Pure Platinum, Refined Perfection of An Earth...

Many times we hear about “The 1%” in today’s news stories. When it comes to scarcity however, Platinum is found in only .01 parts per million of the earth’s crust, making it one of the planets most elusive elements. In the 18th Century, platinum’s rarity made King Louis the XV of France declare it “the only metal fit for a king”. So, when Bill Pyburn collaborated with Peter Hledin to produce...
