Easy trailer boat too.

They could do a BBC too, i believe they have.
I tell ya, the Pantera does look very nice. I had been looking at their web site previously. I know *nothing* about their boats. Are you sure they can do staggered twins on the 28? How is the bottom design?

Do you have a budget limit on this project? $300 G's or so?

Haha. No real budget limit except common sense. I don't see a reason why it should cost that much...

Just curious, why is a staggered setup a must? We've built ATs both ways, and we much prefer the side/side setup.

My bad.

Is the 36 boats 36' with or without the platform? It sure looks like a sweet ride. Would be awsome with 725's and Indy drives.

With. It is their 32 hull that has been expanded in the cockpit and engine compartment and the bottom was modified and tuned with input from Tres Martin. It screams and is on rails. I agree I would love to see one with the Ilmor setup.

36 with the platform. I could be wrong, but it basically looks like a 32 with larger area under the hatch to make room for the stagger. Deck and interior specs look the same to me.

the title says "looking for the fastest 30-33 foot twin engine vee-hull"

my .02 - dont waste your time trying to figure out which one is the fastest! Some one will always be faster. bigger, better, badder, etc... just get yourself on the water dude!

From the fairing forward it is identical to the 32. There is more space between the rear bench and bolsters even with the staggered setup.
