Pangas unique ride is due to a pad keel which starts at the stern, roughly 16 inches wide, and tapers to the bow. This is one of the reasons why it requires so little horsepower for this size boat. The 22 is CE certified for up to 150HP, however it can easily carry up to 8 persons and provide very economical and quick boating with 90HP. The Panga is your all in one solution for inshore and offshore fishing.
High Bow Design
The key features of the Panga 22 design is a high bow of almost 4’6” with a beam of 7’6”, gunwale height of 2’3” at the front and 1’10” at the cockpit. The high bow and gunwale provide buoyancy and elevation for casting and retrieval of carrying heavy loads and minimizes spray coming on board. She only draws 8 inches and can customize a jack plate to take advantage of its shallow draft.
Superior Self Bailing
The boat is self bailing and its recessed drain design is far superior to most boats and proves it to quickly drain water and easily remove all dirt from the main deck surface. Everyone hates spending 20 minutes in the corner of a boat trying to exit the dirt, soap, and water from the poorly designed drains. You will not have to worry about that with this design.
Seating and Storage
The raised bow area with large storage hatch below makes for a great casting deck for fishing or if you are just out cruising it becomes a very comfortable sun lounge deck with custom made cushions and fully removable, adjustable height & adjustable angle, fwd facing backrests. Sufficiently recessed fwd and aft seating is an option that many bay boats are lacking, but you will love the perfectly recessed seating options of the Panga which allows for family and friends to safely lounge up forward and back aft while running full speed. The aft seating has custom cushions and quick release backrest options leaving a clean stern for fishing when removed or for easily storing when not in use. Underneath the stern seating has storage, battery/bilge pump/live well pump access and a live bait well. Seating also exists on the forward part of the center console with storage underneath. The helm seat options include stainless rocket launchers or a reversible seat upgrade with individually reversible seats which is a great option for one person to drive while the other watches the kids tubing or the fish biting. Cooler inserts or other options could be customized.
Custom T Top
All Banks Pangas T-Tops are custom built right here in the Carolinas to the highest quality and strength using heavy duty polished aluminum. All tops are a 100% welded piece. They are custom fit for the boat and console then mounted to both the deck and console in eight locations.
