This is the boat that started it all, the P1 28 Panther, in the fully loaded LX configuration in outstanding condition, with a fresh survey, on a Myco Aluminum trailer.
This is a 275 Verado powered DTS boat, with 350 hours on the powerhead, and fresh steering as well as trim rams. Full 300 hour service just completed.
The boat is complete with 12” Garmin display, Vessel View 702, RacePac data logger, depth, and LED trim indication. The engine is mounted on a hydraulic HD Bob’s Machine jack plate, capable of up to 450hp, and this is the only P1 boat to have Livorsi trim tabs.
The boat also includes the race faring, which goes over the rear seats, changing the configuration to the race version…

Although the Panther was conceived as a race boat concept, one of the key initial design criteria was that it be easily convertible to a pleasure boat.
Many manufacturers have tried that approach, and typically end up with enough compromises on both the race and pleasure side that the boat is really not outstanding in either category. The Panther is a striking exception, because once the cowling is removed, and the rear seat re-installed, it truly takes on a completely new persona…
The upholstery elements blend into the race styling of the forward cockpit seamlessly, such that once you remove the cowl, it is difficult to tell that it is a full bread race boat (aside from the potential graphics)!
The LX version takes the racing pedigree, and expertly blends it with the pleasure amenities that you want. Great performance, eye-catching appeal, and the feeling of driving a sports car.
