Pantera Boats Inc. announced today that as a result of a series of business transactions and agreements endorsed and sanctioned by the Miami-Dade County Circuit Court, the company, as successor-in-title, has acquired all molds and related intellectual property including trademarks, designs and copyrights, clearing the way for the rebirth and relaunch of these world-class powerboats and iconic brand.

Pantera Boats Inc. is headed by Cam Heaps, founder of Carbon Marine, Inc., which introduced the world's first 100% carbon fiber exposed powerboat hull at the Miami International Boat Show in 2016. "It is an honor to be a part of preserving the Pantera brand and heritage built by the Nunez family. Today's announcement is the beginning of a new chapter that will see Pantera Boats available again to customers around the world," said Cam Heaps.

Pantera Boats Inc. has established a manufacturing partnership with Jaguar Powerboats, which will provide decades of race-proven production experience. "Jaguar's incredible history of world championship victories and indestructible hull construction makes them the perfect manufacturing partner for our new company," said Pantera's President Jeff Howat.

Coupled with the advanced laminate production expertise provided by Carbon Marine, Pantera Boats Inc. will have manufacturing capabilities in both the United States and Canada. Pantera will build models from 24 to 38 ft, including the classic 28 and 36's in both regular and twin stepped hulls. New additions to the lineup include outboard center console options, as well as day yacht versions, with walk through integrated transoms and luxury cabins.

"We look forward to utilizing the race-proven Pantera hulls and adding new and exciting models while harnessing the most advanced composite building processes available today. With high-end fit and finish and refined interiors, a new era of Pantera is born," said Cam Heaps.
