Plans to build the 12' [3.7 M] Bahia Mini Panga

One of my customers wanted one of my ultra efficient Pangas in a diminutive 12 foot length, so I drew up this mini-panga for him. It features a very efficient v-bottom to handle rough, choppy water with ease, but in a very efficient underwater form so you can power it with minimal horsepower and fuel consumption. It's also very easy to build, so you can knock one out in not very many hours. It's the perfect little boat to use in big lakes or fair weather coastal conditions, able to handle a big load and not kill you with gas costs. It would also make an excellent tender for a bigger yacht.

About Pangas

Plans to build a panga fishing boat

The Panga is a type of modest-sized, open, outboard-powered, fishing boat common throughout much of the developing world, including Central America, the Caribbean, parts of Africa, the Middle East, and much of Asia. Pangas are commonly operated directly off of beaches. The name comes from the upswept bow of the boat which resembles the machete or knife called a panga.

The panga design is a happy combination of a very efficient hull requiring minimal power, a hefty load carrying capability, and excellent seaworthiness, making them an ideal choice for commercial fishermen in developing countries requiring economical, but safe commercial operations. Though most pangas have solid fiberglass hulls, the basic design is readily adapted to glass/epoxy covered fiberglass over inexpensive dimensional lumber framing.
