The 480 Panga is designed for commercial divers in mind. The robust hull is built with 5mm bottom plate, 4mm structure and 4mm tread plate. The main features of this design is the flotation collar which also provides a wide comfortable gunnel seat for side entry for divers. The beam is 2.3m wide, which offers an incredible amount of stability for a small boat. The wide body transom allows several guys standing at the transom fishing, or getting in and out of the water. There are two boarding platforms and one very robust dive ladder that makes getting onto the boat very easy. The aft seat allows several tote tanks under it as well as a small sump with bilge pump. A large removable bait board slides over the aft hand rail. Access around the boat is comfortable leading to a generous forward seat which has plenty of storage for life jackets. The helm features a large windscreen and a custom made soft top could be incorporated into the boat for some shade when required. The boat is designed for a 60 to 90 hp outboard. As you might see in the photo we did test it with a 15hp and it went surprisingly well. If you are a diver, this boat must be seen to be appreciated.
