This is Boat # 001.This was the first 24 Pantera ever built.It was 1974.It was powered with a Ford 351 Commander and Volvo 270 outdrive.The boat was Black and White and ran like a Champ.

29 years later and still running like a champ.

On the First picture going out Goverment cut if you look by the big ship there is a yellow boat number P- 24 that is John Carbonell from Super Boat International fame.

My Father is running the M-24 28 with triples and P-22 is a 24 Pantera.

I will post more pics. next week.

This is a 1980 24 Pantera powered by twin 235 HP Johnson outboards.This picture was taken coming back from Bimini right outside the Miami shore.This customer is a good friend of the family and has owned and raced many Panteras.That is a picture of him in 1980.His name is Marshall Ives and he is very well known in the boat racing circuit for many years.

This is a picture of My Father arriving in New York after Breaking the Miami To New York outboard record in a 24 footer with the number 2 and 3 2.4 Outboard Merc. ever built.

This was a very important accomplishment for Pantera Boats at the time.
