In two days, the team at Eliminator Boats in Mira Loma, Calif., is planning to take the cover off of its all-new 25 Speedster catamaran, and Jake Fraleigh—the owner and president of the company that was purchased by the ownership group, RevLine, LLC, last December—is super excited to show off the outboard-powered catamaran.
The 25-foot cat, which is powered by a pair of Mercury Racing 300R engines, is the first of two new Speedster models the company is introducing this year—a 30-footer is currently in production. With much anticipation for the new 25 Speedster, Fraleigh and company decided to unveil the new boat during Thursday’s Desert Storm Poker Run Street Party, which is officially open from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m., on McCulloch Blvd., in Lake Havasu City, Ariz.
“We’re planning to roll out the red carpet for the new 25, literally,” Fraleigh said. “We’re going to take it off the trailer and set the boat on the street so everyone can get a better look at it. We can’t wait for people to see it.”
The Eliminator display, which will showcase other boats from the company, including a 25 Daytona cat owned by Florida’s Brendan Alvarez of PSI Racing—Eliminator’s East Coast dealer—that he plans to run in the event’s top-speed shootout on Saturday, is going to be located between Mulberry Drive and Acoma Blvd.
Fraleigh said the new 25 Speedster has spectacular lines that borrow some characteristics from the company’s popular 27 Speedster, except the 25 has an outboard-first design that will allow the builder to configure the cockpit differently depending on the customer. The first one is going to be delivered to a customer in Ontario, Canada, and, according to Fraleigh, Eliminator has several more on order.
