Inspired by pangas from Central America and around the world, a handful of builders make pangas here in the States. These are a far cry from the stripped-down 1970s versions, however. Many resemble high-end sport-fishing boats rather than the utilitarian little workhorses from which they are descended. U.S. panga builders have stayed faithful to certain design elements — such as the roughly 4:1 length-to-beam ratio and shallow hull — that preserve low running costs and seakindly handling. But they also are providing the increased horsepower, beefy construction and onboard amenities that contemporary American anglers seek. — Heather Steinberger
