I have been a Skeeter fan since our first one back in the early 70's ( bathtub ) up to the one I own now. It hurts to see the company go corporate and allow only a very limited number of color schemes (8) on the new boats, no more customizing it to be your boat.
I am going to be in the market for a new boat soon, and if they stick to that policy, I see a Bass Cat in my color choice sitting in the boathouse smile

Buy a plain white and wrap it to your special color

Just called my buddy that outfits at Dawson's in Jasper and he said that the LE's and the stock 8 patterns are all we can get, cannot order a plain white or any options for that matter as far a color. He said 6 color choices on LE's and 8 on all others. and that is it. ( Huge Sigh )They even deleted the Build Your Skeeter off of the website. Just another reason I hate corporate ownership, things get streamlined and eventually fail.

I never thought I'd see that. I wonder if they are prepping for change of some sort with Johnny Morris snatching up more brands? hmmm

I think the two brands go well together.

Well I understand why they did away with the custom colors and all the choices it cost a ton of money to offer a wide variety of colors. We have about 4k color options where I work and I don't understand why they don't cut it back to 20-30 colors a year. I work in the paint department and I can tell you first hand it's a pita to offer all the different choices.

Skeeter isn't the only manufacturer doing this in the boat industry and the others seem to be making do with the limited color choices.

I can see that point to a certain limit. If I am going to drop nearly 70k on a boat, I want it to be my boat, my colors, not what the factory thinks I should like. Sure, have a limited palette, just let me choose what color goes where at the bear minimum. I love Skeeter, just hate the new policies and I do see that losing them some business, not that it will hurt them none what so ever. Skeeter will survive based on Yamaha motor sales alone.

I understand you point completely about the color choices, but I'm just stating from a manufacturer standpoint it cost a whole lot more to offer a vast array of color choices. Plus longer turnaround on custom colors, they can just keep building the color options the have available plus it's easier on the dealer to have most of the color options in stock this way.
