As I recall, the 24 Python is/was a splash of the Pantera. Yes it should fit no problem. Your beam is 7', correct?

I always wanted to put on a swim platform. Boat looks great. I would call Extreme Marine swim platforms. Assuming they have made one for a pantera and a python then they should know.

wow, how are you gonna clear the exhaust?
it just seems the top of the exhuast is right at the rubrail at the corners of the transom. Will a platform clear the pipes and make it to the outside of the transom?

Yep 7' beam.

The wife is whining about having to step on the outdrive and climb over the transom to get into the boat from the water. Can you imagine ?

She suggested I find a platform or else ...

I hear what you`re saying. From my measurements, it will fit --- it is CLOSE, but will fit ...

I agree. Like I said in my other post it should fit but IMO the steps would look much better.
