Our Pantera 24' "Sport" model has a racier straight across fiberglass windscreen that we offer with custom race sitdown seats or stand up bolsters.

This is also a boat Ive been to Catalina and back on several times so although not the best big water boat,(what 20 footer is) it's one you can confidently go out in.

I lusted after it heavily during my years at Skipper Marine electronics and our best client camborac marine sold them so I know it well-

Do you have the round or square cuddy hatch?
I have the square hatch. My boat came with a 350 and Cobra drive. It now has a 383 and Bravo 1 drive. It is a fun little boat. Not too big for small lakes and just big enough to go out on Lake MI in average conditions.

Real offshore hulls, built with the right stuff available today.

Add pantera to that list, didn't realize they were also still offering their 24.

4 good companies offering offshores under 25 ft.

5- the Laveycraft 24 won offshore sport boat of the year in 03 (or 04 cant remember)

Now all we need to do is convince new boaters to buy one of the 5 (Im sure there are a few more) instead of yamaha and sea doo and these good companies can stay in business.

Since we cant talk about cats (Of course I would have picked the 24 skater) I'll have to go with the 24 Pantera. This is an old 24 race boat named "Plum Loco" here in my hometown, and runs STRONG. I have driven it, as well as throttled it. Great rough water boat. The hull is a 1992, and it still looks identical to the day it was new. Same paint scheme and everything

SKATERKAT, that is a Bad Asss 24 in that video. We are gaining a few Panteras on the bay where I boat. They are some nice looking boats!

Pantera24,

Nah, unfortuntly "plum Loco" is my friend Scott's pride and joy. He just put a new 600hp big block in it last fall, and is still getting the bugs worked out. Hes actually contemplating sending back to Pantera to put a new top cap and interior in it! He loves the boat. I have my 26 profile for sale on S and F if your interested. It is a 24 pantera popout that has been stretched. We run against each other all the time. The bottoms are IDENTICAL, and I've got priced to go!

I appreciate the offer on the Profile (nice ride) I saw it on S&F but I have my choices down to either another Pantera or Carrera.

Thanks
Angel
