What does "P & D" stand for? (NOT Prototype & Development I hope!) What year did they first come out? Does anyone have pics of them to post? How about the BRT? There is a 26' 1986 Monti Cristo for sale in NJ...ad says it is a "Superboat replica". (boat is on the NJ Yacht Sales website) Can't tell what the deck/cockpit looks like because the cockpit cover is on in the photos. Anyone know of these boats or have any info on them? Any pics?

That Monti looks more like a 24 footer. Closet thing I've seen in a 26 footer is the older 26 Corsa or 26 Martini, which look just like each other except for windshields. The Martini's winsheild I think was taller - looks little like a 28ss cig. Here's pic of a 26 Martini with #6 drive, huber trans, 555ci blower motor good for 112mph

I quickly measured my 1987 Firefox and it looked to be 7'6" at the widest

Last year or maybe year before, Pepe Nunez did an interview on Talkoffshore. I believe he said the Pantera was derived from a Magnum.

Hang Time 27,

Is that Martini on the Chesapeake Bay somewhere? Is it for sale? I think someone here is looking for one.
Do you have more pics of that one? That's got to be one of the baddest ones around! Could you post a larger pic (your avatar) of your boat? THANKS

OK, I'll give my .02 on Pantera vs. Superboat

Disclaimer: I have a 24 Superboat, never rode in a Pantera

Superboat
-400 pounds lighter
-A couple MPH faster (mine runs 77-78 with a 496HO)
-Can probably be had for less $$
-The entrance to the cabin is better. You step down, not a crawl through. Twin settees with a v-berth forward.
-I like how the dash is integrated into the cockpit liner.
-Easier engine access, the back of the back seat raises with the engine hatch allowing complete access around the motor.

Pantera
-Cockpit interior is nicer
-Conventional v-hull, I know some do not like steps, pads, etc
-Probably if I spent time in one I would be able to list more pros

Not the greatest cabin pic but if you look at both boats you will see the diff.

Bottom pic, I don't think the step does much on a boat this size but I think the pad makes a diff.

Dash- I just like the super's better.

The Old Master Harry Schoell Who built the 27 Magnum (was 28) also built a Mica faced mold for a 23 foot boat to be given to Doctor Magoon. from that came most of these 24' Boats.
