The Skater Legacy

Skater Powerboats / Douglas Marine

After starting with the Skater 18 in 1974, Douglas Marine now offers more than ten sizes of catamarans in various models for race and pleasure use. No catamaran builder has won more world and national championships in offshore racing or set more kilo speed records than Douglas Marine.

Founded and led by Peter Hledin, Douglas Marine prides itself on being the leading edge of technology. The Douglas, Michigan based company that covers 91,000 square feet was the first to perfect the use of vacuum-bagging technology, S-glass, Kevlar, epoxy resins and other construction techniques in the high performance industry and we use those construction techniques on every boat we build. Douglas Marine has a full service rigging shop and we even build our own high quality trailers so we can deliver an exquisitely prepared turn-key package anywhere in the world.

Douglas Marine will also customize a boat to an owner’s needs. Whether you want the deck sculpted in a certain way or fitted with a four person canopy, we’re more than happy to oblige. We’ll even help you design a one-of-a-kind graphics and interior package that’s guaranteed to catch the eyes of envious boaters at your local marina.

Douglas Marine, the only name you need to know for high performance on the water.
