Panga Marine 22' ft Boca Grande

Anyone familiar with Panga Marine's 22' Pangas? Looking to talk to anglers who fish out of the 22' ft Boca Grande by Panga Marine or their 22' Marquesas. Thinking about making a jump to a boca grande with a F150 yamaha. Any thoughts?

Here is the manufacturer's site:

looks like a cool boat. Your request is posted many times on people looking to purchase a new boat. It all depends on your fishing likes. Some like rod boxes, others like a big live well and others like storage etc. Some like a pad on the bottom and some like it flat or like deep V. Some like a roll boat and others like a cap. This is not easy but nothing is more upsetting to have a new boat one month and say I wish I had not good.

Those things are everywhere in the Caribbean and Florida. I'm sure they would work well in LA as well. Everyone here loves the low profile bass-boat style hulls on their bay boats but they really don't offer many real advantages.

if i remember the story correctly the Panga was designed by a group, maybe in the US, for fishermen in third world countries. designed to be shallow enough to run up on a beach or skinny water yet able to handle a decent sea and designed to be able to build on a dime.there are tons of manufacturers out there and lot's of homemade boats using the design, i think this one or another licensed the Panga name for US production. i've run around and fished in them plenty of times, they're a great no frills boat. i guess the closest thing to a Reno or lake skiff we have in SE Louisiana. don't see many or any around here but go over to orange beach or down the coast of FL and you'll see some. easy to customize add decks, rod boxes, really a lot you can do with it.

No. I ended up buying a used 24' Blazer Bay model 2400 cc. Great boat. It was perfect for black bay, lake pontchartrain, close rigs out empire / grand isle, and inside delacroix. Even did a little shrimp trawling out of it. Down fall for that boat was you needed every inch of two feet to get that big bastard up.

If you got the coin to play, the Blazer 2400 is a solid boat. I would just buy a new one next time and slap a yamaha f250 on it. I was running a suzuki on mine. These days the blazer bay and black jack boats are catching my eye.

I recently sold the blazer and down sized to a 18' Tims custom flat w/ 3'ft fantail. You rarely can find a used one. A new one rigged out will run you $26K+-. I got lucky and found a 2004 model which is rare. If you find a used one they are typically 1980 models. People build the to order and keep them. Since I fish alot by myself during the week. This boat is perfect, economical, and strong. Perfect for Delacroix where i mostly fish.

I would love to have a panga 22' but the 18' tims flat is hard to beat for what i do. The narrow bottom, high deck, and speed of panga kept me mostly from buying.

I hope this helps.

when i was down there i rode in a 22 with a 140 suzuski--i made 36 mph--now there were 4 adults-tee top--and all the live wells --it was loaded down---im getting the 22 out of perry---he is lots cheaper--it will be a few more weeks before i can pick it up.

That is good numbers for me. Post a photo once you get it. Where you plan on fishing? I seen they have a yellow one running down in delacroix and they have a blue Andros out at west end, New Orleans harbor.

I would like to see a picture too. Do you know what the main difference is between the pagna marines out of sarasota and the ones in Perry, FL? I have seen a lot on the web about PM and Andros, and the barebones hulls from abroad, but I haven't seen much on the Perry, FL ones.
