What is a Panga Style Boat?

The Panga boat is not well understood in the United States, however they have been used for commercial purposes for decades now. It’s not uncommon to see a fisherman in a Panga 100 miles from shore fishing for days at a time without issues. These boats are extremely reliable and seaworthy. This is why we consider them to be some of the best fishing boats out there!

They are also long and thin and extremely efficient with lower horsepower. Many people are afraid of the narrow beam and there is no reason to be. It’s not “tippy” as you would think.

While on a plane, they ride flat and can access the shallowest places that any backwater fisherman can find.
