The 35 ZR is an excelent boat as soon as I sell my 26ZX I am buying one, I have had the pleasure of driving the 35ZR many times, once in a Poker Run and tested many for customers, the 35ZR with 496s runs 82 solid mph ad with 525s runs 90+ mph. The 35 rides like a bigger boat she is a full 35 and solid she handles roug water well. all the 35ZRs I sold the customers love them so far I haven't heard any complaints. The biggest downfall of the boat is the low cabin but if you are not living in there who cares the boat is built for speed. she dosent chine walk, very easy to operate and she can run.
