Default Donzi or Cig/Banana, A dark horse enters the frey

I was about to pull the trigger on a 24 banana (cig mold) w 225 Merc OBs and tonight a Clean Donzi X18 w SBC/TRS shows up in nice shape.
The 24 needs cosmetics, take out the windshield, paint next year, new carpet and full interior vinyl.
The donzi is running a bit slow for my taste at 66mph but it is a roller cam and headers away from 420 hp and that should spice things up a bit.

I boat on rivers w wakes and 1 foot chop/cross chop and don't need max offshore capabilities, but was looking forward to boating standing up in a Bolster.

The Donzi is better known then the Banana and everyone wanted one when they were a kid, and is much cleaner.

I'm leaning toward the Donzi, and the owner is ready to go.

The Banana owner has been dragging his feet for 4 weeks and I sold my boat yesterday and need to deliver it this week in the same location as both boats about 12 hours from here.

The Donzi may be the easier boat to close at this point as well.

What do you think?
I'm really asking your opinion =)

Thanks
Evan

Can't go wrong with a Donzi, but it IS a small boat. Not much storage room, or moving around. But, I love my 18... the sensation of speed is amazing that close to the water...
