Default 2004 Donzi 38Zx

Does anybody know this 04 Donzi out of New York that is on classified page on this site? I boat out of loto and is a long haul to get boat and just wanted to put feelers out to see if anyone knows anything about boat?

And how the ride would be on the rough waters of LOTO?

And if I should definitely do a sea trial or just rely on a boat survey?

Mine has 525scís
it likes the fuel
seems to do better on fuel if you let it run and free up the hull from the water
3500-4000 rpm Iím guessing
Iím at the 13 mm even with a boat that big your still not going to run around full speed on the weekends
it a better ride than the 35zr I had
but not as good as the 36 spectre I had before this one

Yeah I'm just looking for a boat that's heavier and can drive on LOTO on weekends and not get beat to hell. I originally was looking at a 43 BT because I usually have a fair amount of people on boat but it sold on me.

I ran one for 5 years on LOTO. The boat is built extremely well. Solid. Run around 50mph during the weekend under the 20 mm and very seldom have to adjust throttle. Buy it, you wont be disappointed. Fuel is around .9 - .6 MPG. Cruises the best around that 50 MPH and 525's will run just under 80.
I had a 01 Daytona with 575's. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...D&&FORM=VRDGAR

What did your Donzi run on 575's ? Looked like a super clean boat and i'm guessing you sold it?

whats' your thought's on the 43 BT i'm getting older and just liked how much room was in the engine compartment to work on it and was ready to make offer and it sold on me.
