Default What is this boat ?

I traded for this boat the other day and I'm not sure what it is, I can't find and association of the hull numbers with a manufacturer, here is a link to the pictures of the boat, I think it's a Pantera, it's 28ft length 7' 10" beam. and weights 3660 with no motor or drive. any help would certainly be appreciated. Thanks

Im not exspert yet far from it but from the shape of the rear it seems from the pad, design, and deck with grab bar velocity.

It doesn't look like a pantera or a saber.
There's no stamp on the upper right corner of the transom?

I dont think its a Pantera. The 28 Panteras have more freeboard. Could be a 28 Cig knock off or something like that. Looks like it could be a fun project.

Looks like an Aero Tek.

I'd put money on it that it is a 30' Webcraft. There was an old "A" class raceboat called "Duces R Wild" that was the same hull. The flat pad on the bottom runs forward 1/2 way to the bow. Also the deck near the stern is the same as the Webcraft. This might even be the Duces boat-no interior, lifting eyes on bow and transom, and the original dash has center steering. Definately NOT a Pantera.

Yes, here's a picture of the numbers, 889 28 .. I couldn't find any that matched in the apraisal guide.

I'm not an expert either, but I'd be surprised if it were a Webcraft. The bottom seems kinda similar (from what can seen) but I was a dealer for them in the early eighties and I don't remember anything with a deck like that. My guess is Aero Tek

All I know is that is entirely too much trailer for that boat!
