As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, Sea Ray Boats is reintroducing a venerable runabout from its history — the new 22 Pachanga.
The first 100 will come with a 50th Anniversary Limited Edition (and retro) package that includes Ultraleather HP upholstery, red gelcoat and accents, and a numbered builder’s plate.
The original Pachanga was introduced in 1969 and designed for boaters who were more attracted to speed than to size and amenities. The 18-footer could exceed 50 mph and had a low profile, rakish windshield and prominent racing stripe. The name, which means “lively party” in Spanish, was brought back in 1986 when the 22-foot Pachanga II was launched. It pioneered the 260-hp MerCruiser sterndrive.
This latest version of the Pachanga, measuring 24 feet, features a flashy exterior, sleek windshield, reverse sheer line and stainless-steel hardware.
The new Pachanga features six lifting strakes for quick planning. Standard power is a MerCruiser 350 Magnum MPI Bravo III sterndrive (300 hp) with an optional 496 Magnum HO Bravo III (425 hp).
Pricing for the 22 Pachanga starts at $63,789. www.searay.com
