Like was said before on here 28' is 28' if it's too rough for one too rough for the other - don't kick yourself no such thing as a "bigger" 28'er that would make a difference.

Pantera is a classic look Krypto to me is modern / Euro look. I would liken it to an Apache vs Fountain in styling.

I like the classic lines - Pantera

Dead on summary. I think the Pantera will always be timeless (desirable).

I like both boats, but I am going to vote Kryptonite.

If I am going to care for and feed 650 HP, I want to be running faster than the 70's.

Pantera, top speed is overrated.

Kryptonite.

It is by far faster than a 28 Pantera with same power and as said before, 28' is 28' so it will run anywhere a Pantera will. I know from experience.

The only factor that may sway you is sit down vs. stand up. I prefer sit down as you can see from my run of boats:
22 Donzi Classic, 29 Kryptonite, 38 Donzi ZrComp.

Agreed, 28' is 28' no matter how you look at it. IMO, 28 is a little short for a sit down boat if it's going to be used in rougher water. You're going to take some hits in either, so my spine would say stand-up. Given that, I think I'd take the deeper freeboard and stand-up found in the Pantera.
