Catmando, No plans for a 47' at this time. It is a BIG 41' footer. That particular turn was not very fast. I did turn it a few minutes after that picture was taken right around 70 - 75 MPH and it turned and handled perfect. I know when we race it next month in Italy we will need to be much more agressive with the turns in confused water. Looking forward to it !

Just went on your site and I get the error page for everything I try to look at. Does your site not accept Firefox server?

Feel free to ask me any questions you may have. [email protected] or call me at the factory at 786-331-7100.

We would of liked to have raced the Bimini race but in order for the boat to race in Sardinia, Italy on July 9-11 it had to ship a few days before that event. Our customer wants his new 41' to attend the Italy race. This new 41' arrives in England on the 3rd of July and then a 3-4 day drive to Italy. Our customer has not even been in the boat yet. We only tested it here in Miami for no more than 30 minutes so we look forward to testing the boat in Italy the day before the race. It will only get faster with more prop testing.

This is about as much fore play as I can take.. Nicely executed, came in weight where I wanted it to..not too light.. performs slightly better than expected with 525's and 6's and looks Damn good doing it.. That solid color is pure Heritage... I could care less if it wins any races...This is the total package done by one of the best..., can't wait to see the plearsure version..

I figured the guy with the Cigarette was selling his to buy a 41 Pantera after a disappointing run across the ocean!

That Bimini crossing isn't Loto water!

WOW! I can't wait to see the pleasure version as well!
I love the blending of old school looks with just enough modern cues to make it look new and exciting! Obviously the steps are working perfect, now I have a new favorite "next" boat! Maybe a pair of 600hp diesels for Island hopping!

Disappointing? Actually the water was a lot like LOTO that particular day.

That Pantera sure is sweet looking; can't wait to see how it runs.

Just messing with you......You had one of the best looking boats out there! I wish more pleasure boats would make that run!

The race boats are expected to be fast and reliable but the pleasure boats are the real deal. I can't believe with the amount of fast powerboats that attend S. FL poker runs that this event doesn't have two dozen pleasure boats out there!
