Hmm, wonder if he's biased?

$30K for 20 mph faster is a bargin every day of the week! As far as reasonable time, 18 months is a bogus statement! One can cut that in half and then some.

Tried to order one from Big Thunder last February for this summer delivery price was no options and boat runs 100mph with 525's and yes there is only 3 pleasure hulls built to date one was joint venture with baja. call skater and ask them when you could get one and add 6 months. cumberland has had one for quite some time call and get a price on one.I'll also bet your price will now be over 400k. I'm a little biased, but honestly feel the Nortech 39 is an awesome v bottom, thanks Gary for the comments on the girls saturday, it was a little hot for a couple of them to show, but we will have a couple more promotions at horney toad backwaters and our marina opening hopefully in august. thanks for coming. skater story is straight up thats why I called and took on Nortech.

Donzi seems to be building quite a few ZR's I have seen them testing at least 6 here so far this year1

I was quoted right at 400k for 525's in a base 39 without any add on's (the new design). The 600sc's were comfortably into the 400k range.

I wasn't aware that Donzi and Fountain were charging that much for their sit downs these days. That's actually hillarious. I was definitely off in my "double the price" exaggeration.

I would always take the Skater over the Fountain or Donzi.

You can get any deck configuration you like which is both good and bad as it can take longer depending upon your taste. There is currently one being finished with the quarter canopies.

The Ilmor 625's are less expensive than their Mercury counter parts and they appear to perform better also.

Those engines and drives in the boat are under 400 k on a trailer, you can add more $$ based upon the power and drive options. The Ilmors will push the boat in to the 110 range quite easily.

The one that Cumberland has is with a molded deck and the future ones will not have that deck configuration.

They have not done one with my drives so these are based off the Bravo's and the SSM#6 drives.
