does anyone know who makes this type/style of boat

Here is a random question. When I was down in the Caribbean a couple of weeks ago all of the resorts had a certain type of work boat that I am trying to identify. Every resort, dive outfit, parasailing company uses them. I know if you have been down there you know what tupe of boat that I am talking about but they don't appear to have any manufacturer's markings on them.

Here is the description:

Open bow power boat.
Usually a 50-100 horse outboard
Heavy fiberglass construction
Deep V bottom
The seating is usally four or five bench seats.


I tried to google it, look on yachtworld, image search. Considering that they are everywhere down there I assumed it would be easy to find out who makes them. I would post a pic but I can't even find one that comes up in an image search.

This is just a curiosity question. I was bored and decided to do some research on them. When I couldn't find out anything about them I decided to post on here.

Most are "Panga" style boats. They are made by several companies. A quick search will find several makers online. Sturdy boats. A lot are used as fishing boats and as general purpose boats.

That's the one. I don't know why they never came up with all the key words I tried on google.

Just type "Panga boats" in your search bar and then hit enter.
