Default Bravo Or Nxt Drives On Larger Heavier V-bottoms

Have a buddy that is looking at a few models, primarily same size boat as I have, 4300 Nortech. He is also looking at sunsation, and possibly Cig or OL, but I know he doesn't have the coin for these two. We both have had bravo boats before and our soured on their performance of lasting. With the newer style of bravo drives that have come out as well as the new NXT drives, can you guys share your experience on how both of these drives are lasting. Good or Bad....Give me the type of boat, power and drives as well as hours with out rebuild. Thanks Guys, I'm trying to get him straightened out before he goes to Miami. Jeff

The list-coin on the Sunsation is not cheap either. I dunno what real dollars are.

Jeff, have your friend drop me a line, and I can talk real dollars about the 43AT.

He wants something that he can get his hands on now. He is also very impatient and sometimes has more $ than brains. A very compulsive buyer.

If he wants something big in the 43' range why dont he look at the 43ZR Donzi. Nice boat and ride with the nice speed advantage.

Some manufactures are having problems with the NXT and some are having excellent luck. As to the Bmax and Teagues, No thank You, I have friends on this board with their products. As to the Weisman, I saw one on a Nortech that didnt impress me as to how a few of the lines came across one of the cases, rubbing when being steered. As to the internals Im sure they are stout like a #6, but where do you get them serviced at. Also there is no price advantage vs the #6. Maybe thats not Pats goal. Then there is the unfortunate percieved resale.

Who on this board, dealer or customer has a boat with the NXT drives and can share the experience. Whether it is positive, negative, poor set up, to high x-dim, and so on. Thanks Jeff

One of my all time favorite boats, I'm looking forward to them coming back into production. Just not quite there yet. Jeff

Trust me, if Pat had his 43 done, I would gladly be showing it to my buddy. Hopefully I will get to meet you on the next roll tossing Poker Run Jeff

I showed him 2 43's, via email...nice boat. The problem is...he is 6'4" and 265 pounds. The cabin I believe on the 43 Donzi's would be a little tight for him. He presently has my old 42 Sonic and loves my old 43 Nortech . Jeff

Love the paint on this 38 Donzi.
