“If you’re in search of a Panga, I strongly suggest checking out After tedious research, I opted to purchase an Eduardono Panga through Jim Novak at in Orlando. Jim informed me about a dealer closer to my location compared to Florida. However, upon discovering that the alternative dealer didn’t have my specific boat, Jim proceeded with my order.

Jim discussed all options after learning my wishes and recommended what options would be most beneficial or not. Having ordered the boat from a distance of 1200 miles, my reliance on Jim for updates was crucial. There were no unexpected fees or price adjustments to the initial quote. The final completion occurred just a few days beyond the original estimated timeframe.

Despite my initial apprehension about having a boat built so far away, the overall experience was excellent and straightforward, thanks to Jim’s exceptional communication. If you’re looking for a Panga, I highly recommend considering and Jim Novak without any hesitation.”

“Jim, I wanted to send out this letter of thanks and appreciation. My 25’ Eduardono Corvina Panga arrived safely and she is beautiful. From the initial phone call and first introduction to final paperwork your customer service has been exceptional. I have been looking for an Eduardono Panga since 2012, and finally own one thanks to you and your efforts to import in my opinion the best built brand of all pangas, Eduardono.

My experience with Eduardono Pangas began in November 2012, while in the Navy as a Special Warfare Combatant Crewman. (SWCC) assigned to Naval Special Warfare Development Group. The goal was to develop counter piracy training after the kidnapping of Captain Phillips off the merchant ship Maersk Alabama in 2009. The Navy requested a similar vessel used by the Somali pirates,so the chosen boat was a 32-foot panga with twin 250HP two stroke Yamaha outboard motors. At this time, I had never heard of a panga. When the training boat arrived, it was extremely damaged including fiberglass repairs from bullet holes from the U.S. Customs or USCG. It was a bare hull with fiberglass ribs and a makeshift console from previous owners. The hull had an Eduardono sticker.

Training began just south of Chesapeake Bay in winds predicted to blow 25-30 knots with 8-10 ft seas. However, the weather was worse and having a crew of three, we were in awe of the panga’s agility. We tackled 10-12 feet high from trough to crest waves. I was astonished at the nimbleness and seaworthiness of the panga design. The rest of the afternoon and next few evenings of training were a pleasure even with the large seas. The bare bones basic hull at first glance was underwhelming, but after that few moments of warfare with the sea, the steed became much more beautiful to me.

Please note I would not do this today with my personal boat but when you’re young and duty calls, a few will answer. Uncle Sam owned it, so we drove it like we stole it.”

“I was looking for a Panga and found MyLastBoat online. After speaking with Jim, I was glad I called. I knew I made the right choice.  Jim was always willing to answer any question I had. If he didn’t know the answer he would contact the factory and get the answer.

He always returned my texts and calls. It was a pleasure working with someone who wants to work, that’s a rare thing these days.

If you are looking for a Panga, don’t hesitate. You will not find a more honest and knowledgeable person.”

“Give Jim Novak a call – by far the nicest and most honest fella I’ve ever worked with. Not to mention he is 400 miles away from me and I bought this boat sight unseen. Had a small issue with a pump and without hesitation I get a check in the mail from Jim for a new pump and installation.”
