Keep up the great work.! The new design looks awesome and I suspect it will run better than it looks! Nice to see some two sided innovation in the performance boat world.
No luck needed here just your usual results!

Best Regards,

This new 28' will be powered by a single Mercruiser 525 EFI package. Customer has been kicking around the idea of putting more HP.

Thanks,

JO

Hi Ray,

Hopefully we will be doing 1 of these soon with your 625 HP package.

Regards,

Jo

Boat looks fast!!!!!!! I love the side coves, gives the boat a Corvette or Viper look. The LED lights would be a really cool touch highlighting those coves at night. Really impressive new factory as well. Thanks for giving Kirk Jurinek, myself and our wives a nice tour last month.

Jo,
From the pics in the Pantera forum, it looks like you did the cove on the SB side while the boat was in the mold, and the Port side has all the backside of the cove glassed in, but is still a straight side. Is this correct? I assume you just remove the skin over the cove on the Port side once popped right?

Hi Sydwayz,

It was done the same on both sides in the mold just the picture taken at different times. Here is a picture of the lamination. Alot of work and thought went into doing this process with the recessed hull sides.No room for error !! My Father did a great job of coming up with the way to make this process work in the lamination. For the last couple of years I have thought that hull sides on boats look to plain and wanted to add a unique style to them. Thinking of doing the recessed hull sides on our 36' and new 41' model also. Customer can order their new Pantera's with or without them.I personally love the agressive look.

Brad, good seeing you guys last month. Glad you enjoyed the tour of the factory. Maybe we will meet up at a Race or Poker Run this Summer.

Regards,

Jo
