What [email protected] said is 100% true. You loose about 3' with the beak and platform. Same goes with the platform on the Sunny, so that'll be about 34' for the 36' and 30' for the 32'. It's not badmouthing the Fountain, just info. If the O.P is talking "true" 30-33 feet of boat, this is info worth having and the 35 Lightning is within that lenght. Just stating fact, and I like Fountains.

The old 32 running length minus the platform was just under 30' which is why they were able to run the F1 class.
The newer 32's are I beleive 3" longer ?. That is what allowed them to run in the F2 class. Also the new 32's are not 32', they are 31'-7".
They all lie!

So it looks like Pantera is offering the smallest boat with twin engines. Right?
I bet that 28 Pantera with twin 525s is a nice piece. Apparently they built at least one boat this way - what does she run?
The Pantera looks like it has a reasonable hull weight. Anyone care to comment on their bottom design and also the true length of their "28"? It looks pretty big actually.
28 Pantera Staggered 525/Arneson setup......that boat would break a lot of big boats hearts
The Pantera 28' model is a true 28' to the transom. With the optional aluminum swim platform installed overall length is a little over 30 feet.These 2 new 28' SR are being completed now. One powered by a single 525 EFI and the other with a single 600 SCI.

jo did you guys build anything bigger than 28 years ago??? I know about the newer twin steps, but im talking prior to that.
We still offer the 24' 36' and new 41 model'. We also did manufacture a few 38' years ago.
This new 2012 Pantera 41' just headed overseas. Came out awesome !
