Here is my Banana Boat...
I will try and give you some measurements on my 24 Superboat. These will be close but not perfect.
The bow down the center to the fairing is 12 feet.
From the fairing to the transom is 11' 7".
Between the cabin door and the rear bench seat base is 4'6"
There is 20" between the front of the passenger bolster and the cabin.
There is 17" between the back of the bolster and the rear seat base.
There is 33" between the back of the bolster seat and the back of the rear bench seat.
The sun deck to the transom is 4'.
Measuring across the inside of the cockpit is 5'6".
The swim platform is 26".

Love the old school stuff. Do you have a profile and transom shot?
What the he** is ESB anyway?
The 24 SE does "appear" to have a shorter bow, That is because of the v-shaped fairing, However the cockpit is no larger than the sport , You just have more room between theOriginally Posted by noboat
fairing in the cockpit, or fairing and dash, but no more usable cockpit room. Get on Pantera's site and check out the pics of the black & white 24 SE and you can see what I am talking about. I have a 24 sport with all new model interior if you need any measurments or pics. Just let me know. Oh yeah!
Its also in the classifieds for sale ( The yellow one with custom paint )
I may make the switch also. I wanted the 28 Pantera but I dont think I can swing the price unless I find a project boat. So I'm really considering the 24 Pantera. I hear what every body is saying about the ride. I have been in other 24-25 Bajas and Checkmates and a 23 worlock. I wish I can get a ride in a 24 superboat or 24 Pantera before I sell my boat. I would hate to go sideways again.
24' banana (i.e. 24' Cigarette) has a width of 7'11". I don't know why the Firefox specs from '86 would say 7' 4.5". Must be a mistake as it is the same hull...???? Strange??
Russ, I don't know where you are located. But you are more than welcome to set up a ride in my 24 Pantera, You can even take it home for a small donation!!! I am located about half way between Knoxville & Chatanooga, TN. Talk to you later , ScottOriginally Posted by Russ G.
Scott thats very nice of you. I live in New Jersey. Your boat is killer! Nobody can build a custom boat for less then you are selling it for. I look at your ad all the time. Thanks for the offer. Thats alittle to far just for a ride. Although if I was buying it would be no problem. I love road trips to buy cool toys!
Thanks for the complements on my boat. I have put alot of myself into it . Amen to the road trips. There is just somthing that makes those trips alittle more fun.Originally Posted by Russ G.
Cordell, thatnks for all the measurements! Scott, or anyone else with a 24 Sport, want to measure from the bow tip down to the top of the fairing like Cordell did?
And Scott, your boat does look great!
