I think either way--they are both great boats. If you were looking at the "sitdown boats", I would get the Donzi over the Gladiator.

otherwise, I would go for the 39Top Gun with the 700's.


****If "reslae" value is aconcern (it should be) then why not buy a low hour, clean boat that will cost you $100K less than new? This will reduce the "depreciation" factor considerably.

New boats are hard on the pocket book - better resale and more buyers on the cig, but higher price - good luck with the decision
Randy, were you down at the lake this past weekend?

If you like black and green on a 39 Cig, we can take your boat in on trade. The Donzi is no slouch though. There is one coming in with 700's as well. Both are great boats. It's up to you!

I thought I saw you at the trade show. I said something to my wife that I thought it was you, and she just kept walking on towards the exit. I should have stopped.

The boat is on the way back from the Atlantic City show to the factory. They are going to put a generator in it and then return it to the lake. Not sure about the timeline, but it should not be too much longer.

Have a good trip down to FL. We will hook up this spring.

Anyone have any thoughts on this? I'm just not really seeing the the difference/benefit of the Cig for the dollars.
Just beware, once you buy your first cig, you will not buy anything else, its a drug.
Once you are in the family there is only one way out (in my best mobster voice)

Have fun testdriving both, see you at LOTO

If that is your plan, go with a Cig from Phil. It's alot of fun building a boat with Phil, Neill and Skip. Keep the boat at Spinnaker/TNT (Phil's) place in the winter where you just call and let them know you're on your way, the boats in the water and you just drop it off at Phil's dock when you leave. Your boat will always be like brand new! Best boating I've ever done. 39TG with 700's/NXT (no problem with the drives) is big, no hassle, fun.

Do you pay a little more... probubly. But when you decide to let it go, there is no better used boat to sell than a "Lip-Ship" Cig.
