Not sure about the 24 but the 25 has been tested by both 'Hot Boat' and 'Powerboat' magazines.

Sunsation 25 (7.4L 300 shp) 65.9 radar Powerboat 3/96
" " (454 EFI 385 shp) 70.6 radar Hot Boat 4/96

I believe they have a fairly good reputation.

Matt might be able to help.

The Sunsation website has the full test reports I mentioned earlier in the thread.

If you have already been to the site, then you know as much as I do.

I ran a 92 25 aggressor, same basic hull as Pantera, P&D, etc
Great little rough water boat and no cracks after 10 yearsIt is a 24 ft hull but they call it a 25 due to the swim platform
It doesn't come with the hardcore offshore accesories like the Pantera, but a great hull
This is basically the same hull
