Don't know where any are at the moment, but I'm sure someone on the board will have some leads. I looked over the past year here in South Florida, but found none. Last time I saw some up close was in the back of a used boat shop in Pompano back in 1988 or 89 and they had two each having a pair of 420's and GIL exhust. They were sweet. For that time a 26' with twin 420's was impressive. Today is as well, but more common.

Good luck on the search

E.S.

I think the old Fever boat might be available. I believe it's a 28 Manta.

Tommym

Go over to www.taber2boat.com/

At the beginning of the summer Phil had one listed for sale. It is'nt showing on his current listings but what you are looking for is unusual / rare enough that it warrants checking him out . At least find out what happened to it !

Good luck /steve

The Monza name has been used twice by south Florida boat builders. The first was early 1970s...built in Lauderdale by a guy named Steve Weinsier...made a 19 and a 26. I had a 19 as my first performance boat. If his 26 is what you're after, good luck...they have to be scarce. He built a 26, bright yellow with an all teak deck...at the time it was bad ass. The second Monza builder is still in Miami but builds only fishing boats now. Don't remember if his "larger" boat was a 26 or not.
