Just picked up an 89 that spent its entire life owned by the same family in Michigan. Pretty much unmolested with only a VHF being added. Currently powered by a 150 blackmax but I am looking to go bigger. Quick question, has anyone had to replace the windshield or have any recommendations on who to call?

Once I get to 10 posts I will add some photos of her. She sits in my slip tied to my Ocean 55 SS. They look great together.

Looking for a 21, complete or just a hull. Preferably one of the non-wood construction boats.

Myth, they pretty much all have wood, there was one here or there custom built with foam, but not the norm. Even into the 2000s right before the end, they were wood.

True story. I have an ‘04 21’ paramount and has wood stringers.

Yep they all had wood I think the confusion has to do with liner vs no liner boats. Liner boats started in 99 if I remember right. They are less prone to rot unless some idiot puts in a dog shit bulk head and blocks a hull drain when he foams in a new gas tank like my old paramount.

1990 was when liners first started, some were built both ways that year.

This project 21 is on Miami craigslist for $4k. Assuming the seller did a good job a lot of the heavy lifting is done. No affiliation with seller

presumably he's looking to recoup his costs in it. But I think 4k for a hull with no floor and tank, is rich. Honestly 2k is more likely the right number to s fairly specific buyer.

Hi Guys, long time lurker. I have been eyeing this boat, the owner calls it a "bararacuda" but it really looks like a paramount to me. But the console and bow are different...do you guys have any info?

Best way to tell if it shares any lineage is to look at the transom/pad area. Strakes, pad, etc will tell the truth

mom so here are the photos I have so far. I may go have a look it’s pretty close. Let me know what you think. I checked the Hin and it was made by barracuda boats in Naples. Let me know what you think.

Nice looking boat, but that isn't a Paramount hull.

Any of you gentleman, have any insight on what to look for when buying one of these boats?, is there any access to see inside the hull through any compartments?
also from what I understand there were 3 companys making the mold paramount, Caribbean craft, and one other Company ? Are there any major differences between the boats made by diff companies? Also if anybody knows of one for sale let me know, thanks
this is in regards to the 21

Only two companies built it, the original and now Caribbean Craft. You can access the hull now only through the transom, bilge access, and anchor locker in the forward line bulkhead. The biggest difference with Caribbean Craft is a higher floor height to allow self bailing and revised liner adding additional storage. All of those compartments are finished off as well with liners. It is my understanding that they will still build a non liner boat as well to save cost and provide a more utilitarian/commercial grade interior.
