    Re: 24 Pantera or Baja 25 Outlaw?

    i don't think anyone can disagree[sure someone will] but the pantera is just a better built boat, not to mention the customer service and personal attention from the nunez family is very well known to oso folks who have delt with them. That said i'm puttin' around in a citation cc 230, but after spending 4 hours at the pantera shop i have vowed to buy one as soon as i am able!!

    Re: 24 Pantera or Baja 25 Outlaw?

    I have two little rugrats and I can tell you from experience get the boat with the tallest Freeboard. In the pictures posted previously it looks like a good percentage of the driver and passenger are above the top of the Freeboard. Bad news for little guys. Granted Pantera is a wicked Offshore boat, there comes a time when one has to rationalize. Just for the heck of it I posted a pic of my wife driving our 29 Baja. Notice how tall the side is. Oh yeah, make sure you get the boat with the biggest cabin. Just my .02

    Re: 24 Pantera or Baja 25 Outlaw?

    I would get the Pantera. I have a 24 Superboat which is just like the Pantera. With equal power, the Pantera will blow away the 25 Outlaw in ANY water. I have two small kids (8 & 5) and the freeboard is no problem. The above pics, the lady is standing, I would consider the Pantera a sit down boat. I NEVER stand in my Superboat. If the cabin is most important to you, get the Baja. My kids rarely go in the cabin and when they do, they are happy. I never use my cabin except to store stuff.

    It's a tough call. There is a really big size difference between those two boats. The 25OL is just BIGGER all the way around. Sounds to me like a 28 Pantera is in order. Best of luck.

    Re: 24 Pantera or Baja 25 Outlaw?

    They are completely different boats. My friend had a 24, it's a sports car where the Baja is a Sedan. Both are good but to compare them is silly. First figure the type of boating you want to do.

    Hard core sport or sport-cruise....

    Re: 24 Pantera or Baja 25 Outlaw?

    I've got a 24 w/ 3kids (6.5, 5, 10mo).
    If the pantera is a 3man bolster, the kids won't even see over the dash.
    You need a place for them to sit. I've fabricated seatbelts so they cant get up under way. Family boat??? If your family goes on it, then its a family boat.

    BTW, I only have a 55gal tank. not 70.
    With great power, comes great responsibility.
