    Dan Arena Custom 21XL

    We just found this sweet little 21XL and I couldn't resist. I've been wanting one of these since I first saw one in the 1973 at lake Tahoe. As luck would have it it's the very same boat. We're doing some work to her now but all in all still very sound.

    1976 Dan Arena Boat

    Hello: I need info on my 18' 4" 1976 Dan Arena boat (pictures included) - I have some info, but nothing conclusive. I would like to know how many of these boats were built? Engine size (I have been told Ford 294)? And anything someone else may know -
    Thanks guys I really appreciate it -

    You're is a 78', I thought they only built these until 74'? Ours is a 72' with a 540. What power do you have?

    Very nice. Mine was built in Pacheco with a 454. I'd love to see some more pics. I'll post some more of mine soon. It's getting a new trailer just now, next is the interior.
