Incorrect. They are building a new 28TS SR w/ twin 502s.

"We are very excited about the new Pantera 28' SR we are going to be building for Mark in Michigan. Powered by the new Mercruiser 502 / 430 HP ( twins ) with our new T.S. bottom. Should be very fast !

Plans are to spray the deck and hull sides in Silver Metallic and the windscreen possibly in flat black. We are putting together some new paint designs now. It will be an incredible boat.

Thanks the post I deleted was an Email Jo sent to me I did not feel right posting it as it was sent to me.But it said pretty much what you posted
As for the porpoisesing I have never heard that can't believe that a little tab or bringing the drives in won't stop that.It should go away after 50 by itself.

Did not know that. The original plan was for it to be a single engine only. Personally, I think twin BBC's are going to throw the balance of the boat off too much.
The key in a stepped boat is the center of gravity and making it ride level.

I have a 27' Fountain for sale. Single and does 69 but a hell of a lot cheaper to run and will fit in your slip well too

No comparison to a 28 Pantera in rough water. My 28 Pantera was a foot longer than a 29 Fountain.

Something like this might be a good option.

Sorry I didn’t have the auto notify on my own post. I have done some research what about an open bow cat? I did some research and the eticketboats web site. Cool boat might be more than I want to spend on a boat 175k new 125k for 05 used. I do like the idea of the space in a cat. Any disadvantages? Dislikes?

After looking at a lot of boats. For our needs it’s going to have to have seating up front. I might be a little to claustrophobic not to be able to walk up front. Also must have a low swim platform because it seems like we are in and out a lot.
