Default 1972 19ft Sea Ray Pachanga

Bought it used in 1976 from the VP of Johnson&Johnson in Chicago for 5000 dollars. color was white with a grape fruit color interior, and a black racing stripe off centered on the bow. The boat had a 460 hp ford engine, and a Berckly jet, Hydrolic trim tabs. Boat drafted 18 inches,and a 30 gallon fuel tank. came with a tandom axil trailer with serge brakes. A very heavy, but stable boat. Top speed 74 mph,and would seat six adults. For its time that was a very fast and sexy boat. I was told by SeaRay engineers in Florida that it was a proto type, and they wanted to know how i got the boat, and asked to drive it, they told me how rare the boat was, and how lucky i was to own it, this was in 1979.iam sorry that I sold it, Now I have 2 Bahas

Had an '88 32 Pachanga w'454/330's. Was a quick boat for what it was back in it's day. Ran low 60's with a fairly comfortable ride and one hell of a great cabin. Had it for many years, ran over 500 hours on it, and enjoyed every minute with it. Moved on to the Velocity when I felt the need for more speed, then to the Fountains for more of the same plus the better ride and handling. The Pac was a great boat, still miss that cushy cabin.

In their day they would hold their own with most out there with equal power. Sea Ray just got out of what they felt was a small market segment. They did bring it back a few years ago, it was just a
Sea Ray 'ised version of a Baja hull, Brunswick family cross over deal. Never did much of anything.

Dont want to steal this thread bu I have a 1990 260 OV that I was told has the same bottom as a pachanga. It is heavy but rides like a caddy & the overall design is cool

What do you mean the bottom was replaced 3 time the fiberglass or do you mean the lower ends? I just picked up a 88 pachanga 32 and it seems to be a great boat just not so smooth in real big waves.

My friend has owned a 27 for 10 years 550hp single runs mid-60's any day and rides well for it's length. I believe they were wood free construction, at least the transom. Certainly would consider one, roomy for a 27.
