With a 7½-foot beam and a swing-away tongue on the standard tandem-axle trailer, the Pantera Classic stores nicely into most two-car garages. With a 200 hp outboard, storage length is 21 feet 10 inches. However, where you’ll really enjoy the Pantera Classic is on the water, especially when powered by a Mercury 200 Pro XS, as was our tester. With two adult males on board, the single-console version (a passenger console is an option) bolted to plane in 2.5 seconds and reached 30 mph in 5 seconds, quickly airing out at 71.5 mph at 5,850 rpm. An R&R manual jack plate easily fine-tunes the ride, and SeaStar Solutions hydraulic steering keeps you in control. The console and bow station feature standard 7-inch Humminbird Helix multifunction displays, but you can upgrade to a 12-inch MFD at the helm. An interactive panel replaces the traditional switch panel at the helm, and dual USB ports are standing by to keep phones charged. You’ll have plenty of sticks to catch fish thanks to center locking rod storage that can hold up to 16 fishing rods up to 8 feet in length. Surrounding the center rod locker are three big stowage compartments in the 6-foot-wide-by-7½-foot-long foredeck.
