I do like that one, but seems a little pricey for stock power. Its a gorgeous boat, I told the wife i wouldn't mind this in place of a Hi-perf. boat. Its fast and has a classy appearence with out the yacht bulky look.

They had one at the Grand Rapids show last year... I thought the helm seat was too close to the wheel, especially when you put the bolster in the "stand to drive" position... thought it odd that the bottom came UP instead of dropping down....

Frank, if you're ready to get back in a V bottom, that new 35 Donzi is your ticket. 80 mph with black motors.

I do have some pics I will post.. The one w/600s is in route from cobalt due weds.. the cool thing is the one I drove Is Hull #1 and is in the brochure for the 343 we have 5 of these of them (all sold now) we have hull 1-3-4-5. I think the 1 warparty ran into is #2 Im still a fountain Guy but pretty impressive for a family boat!!

The one that got me was a test boat for Pac St.Clair. I assume it was a 343?
