Powerboat P1 is proud to reveal that the P1-28SS Panther has received certification from the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), an association that helps manufacturers ensure their boats are built to applicable standards set by the American Boats & Yacht Council (ABYC).

To receive certification, the P1-28SS Panther demonstrated that all production units were manufactured in compliance with the certified design. As the industry body which oversees marine manufacturing in the USA where the Panther is currently built, the NMMA requires boat manufacturers to submit applications for all models, and to undergo a physical inspection by an NMMA inspector annually.

'Receiving the NMMA certification is a very important step forward for P1 and shows the high standards to which the Panther is built,' said Robert Wicks, Powerboat P1 chief operating officer. 'It was important for us to highlight the safety of the boat and the quality of work that goes into our manufacturing processes. The certification will further boost consumer confidence in the product which has been sold to and is raced in a diverse array of markets including the USA, UK, Canada, China, India, France and the United Arab Emirates.'

The P1-28SS Panther was designed in-house and features all the latest in racing safety standards and technology as well as the ergonomics, luxury and environmental stewardship expected in a state-of-the-art leisure boat.

Manufactured in the United States in Florida, the base model retails at $100,000 plus shipping and taxes. The boat is the exclusive race boat for the P1 SuperStock World Championship series. Powerboat P1 website
