Default Donzi ZR Comps are back!!!

Donzi is now going to be making the ZR Comps full time again. They have a new four step hull that totally kicks ass. The first boat done is Bob Christies with 700's and NXT's. Out of the box the boat ran 115mph. They think they can get a couple more mph out of it. They are now priced lower than before, around the same as the 38 ZR's. The boats are a little heavier for added ride, but are faster. We crawled all around the Red boat in the show which had 600's. This boat is a hit with the new bottom as is every Donzi in the line up. Gene Weeks also tooks us on one hell of a ride in the stand up 38 ZR. This hull is truly amazing!! WOW!! There were all big cruiser wakes etc from all different directions, and the ZR just ran right through it, better than everything we've owned and been on. It doesn't feel like a tank and has a great ride. It's fun to drive. The handling in this boat is great!! It just sticks in the turns, if not the best turning steped hull. If your looking for a great boat give Donzi a call. The whole staff is great and the boats are even better. Donzi is definitely in our future!!
Also check out Fearless boats. They debuted at the show, in front of the Lowes hotel. The boat was designed by people at Porsche but being built by Donzi. The boat has amazing craftsmanship and quality unsurpassed. The boat is 28 feet and stunning. Donzi is capable of great things.

In my experience they are not bad, but I didn't get the same ride you did. Fit and finish in the demo was suspect at best but the blue one in the show was a lot nicer. I would suggest checking out some other boats if you fell in love with the demo. They are priced well...Everyone likes what they like and I can respect that.

I am not a big Donzi fan but everyone that I have spoken to that has "seat time" in the 38ZR says it ROCKS and runs better than anything in or near it's class.

I think the Donzi's stood out in the show. Very classy looking lines and graphics and great handling.

I have not been in the "new" ZRC but have been in 2 different ZRC in the past! Great boats!! If I ever decide to step up to that class it will be a Donzi ZRC!

I also heard something between Teague and Donzi is in the talks....not sure what but I would say it will be a good thing!!!

He's refering to the same model that you have Omerta. Vice a sit down model which is the 38ZR COMP.
