Well we took our first test ride in a New Donzi 38 ZR with 700 Mercs and NXT Drives. We ordered this boat for a customer and we took her out for her first maiden run, Mike (Customer) and myself had a last, Mike is use to a 38ZR because allready owned one that ran 90 but this is a whole different ball game: First I want to say a special thanks to everyone at Donzi who puts this awesome boat together, Especilly Gene Weeks from Donzi who worked hard on making this package work so well on the ZR,Mercury for coming out with a 700 package.
NOW THE FUN PART: I love the 38 ZR the way she handles, runs and rides! I didn't know what this boat could do with 700s but I found out, the 700s with Staggereds gets on plane instantly. The torque is unreal and at 4600 RPMS runs 90 MPH. Once you throttle up the torque pulls you in the seat from 90 and your at 100+ with in seconds we didn't run the boat fully out yet so we don't know top end yet, we are also waiting for new wheels form Donzi because with 17X37 Herings are hitting the rev limiter, we had a full tank and at 5000 Rpms hit 104 MPH and she was stable, Donzi had her up to 110 MPH with test wheels and we are waiting for the new wheels to come in. She Ran stable in 2ft chop and we caught a couple of big wakes from boats and the boat at 100 still didn't feel like she was getting loose. All I can say is one of the nicest packages I have seen in a long time and really makes the 38ZR come alive!
beautiful. Congrats to the new owner

Very SWEET What does the 700 package retail for? How many hours before a rebuild?
Is this it ? Is this what I work for...
4x4 is PRICELESS when you are slipping down a ramp backwards with no help in sight !
Very NICE!!!! Good luck to the new owner.... Frank how would a 700 in a 22 classic run
Nice work Frank. That's a sweet ride Mike.
Now all you have to do is convince Gene to put a 700 in a 27zr.
3 days later, and I'm finally almost right.
