2013 Panga Marine 19′ Niente Build
Building a new panga and thus far my experience with Rob & Tom over at Panga Marine has been 1st class all the way. Tom hasn’t missed a detail as we’ve been spec’ing out the boat.
We had a pretty challenging task spec’ing out a boat suited to my family needs. We wanted a boat that was both family & fish friendly. Family friendly in that it will be outfitted to accomodate beach & island hopping family fun in and around Tampa & Sarasota Bay. Fish friendly in that it will be outfitted to fish both inshore & nearshore, and on a nice day a bit of offshore. Needless to say, in the end it came down to lots of compromises. The good news though, I think with the help of Panga Marine we’ve come up with an awesome boat outfitted uniquely for my families diversified needs.
Here’s the short list of what’s been spec’ed:
Ice Blue Hull, Oyster White Deck, 90 HP E-Tec w/ iCommand, Minn Kota RT 80 w/ iPilot, Garmin 740s w/ thru hull transducer, 8′ Minn Kota Talon, Center Console w/ Bench Seat & live well, Bow & CC Seat Cushions, removable Bimini, Livorsi nav lights, stainless rub rail, swim platform, amongst other assorted goodies!
Here are a few images capturing the build thus far.
ed note: As of May 10th, Ray’s boat is in its new home!
