Default 22 Pachanga (now 201 liberator see 2nd page)

Ok guys, I have wanted one since I was a kid and I found one in Akron for a decent price. The only unfortunate thing is that I can not find a whole lot of info on them. I know about all the options, sizes, years they were produced and so on, but I don't know if they have common issues or not, key things to look for so to speak on this particular model. Anyone out there a pachanga gooroo? I have always been an avid boater but I haven't had a boat in 2-3 years and this came up and caught my interest.

Take a look at the add and tell me what you think...

The add is WRONG!!! The boat is an 86 not a 96 and its a 22 not a 20 (they never made a 20ft pachanga).

Even when I had my searay (not a performance boat) it would take me that long. Boaters seem to be one of two ways (that I have noticed) anal or just plain don't give a fukc... I am anal...

that doesn't look like mice, more like normal wear and tear from the driver. it is really nice though, put some downriggers on it after you buy it.

Well not all owners..... About 5 years ago( before I was married and had a child), I was on a pretty big boat kick. I always wanted one, still do. I looked at a ton of power boats, baja, checkmate, liberators, sunsation, formulas,ect, and over half of them were beat to shit.

Pachangas weren't too common. Sea Rays were seen as an old man's boat at the time, so a lot of dealers didn't carry them.

They were pretty beamy for a go-fast, and as Sea Rays were pricey for a 22 - especially compared against the competition at the time (Four Winns Liberators, Wellcraft Novas, Donzis, Regals, and a host of lower-priced boat makers that are out of business now. They were priced up with Formulas and Cobalts. A particularly cool boat of that era is a step-hulled Larson Senza. Unique, fast, nice-looking, and nice-riding.

Like any Sea Ray, they're well-made with quality components. They made a few with big blocks, but they're not common around here.

those pachangas have always been bad ass. with those go fast boats though they tend to be a little more beaten up as well as cared for. so make sure the structure of the boat is all good, transom, stringers, the works. a clean bildge mean's a clean boat.

Totally... I am waiting on more pics from the dealer since the boat is in akron. I don't want to drive down and be disappointed. As far as the "wear and tear" I guess it was coons, that is why the floor boards and carpet were replaced last year.

This has been the boat I have dreamed about since I was a little kid, I hope it works out. I am a Searay fanatic, what could be better than owning a searay go fast!!!!
