The 43 ZR can not be compaired with the 39 Cigarette, two different boats all together. the 43ZR is a wave crusher our 43 runs out with number 6 drives and teague 900s at 105 mph and solid as a rock, the 39 TG is a great boat boat but can't run the big water like a 43ZR with number 6 drives. Either boat is a great choice but don't look at resale the ZRs are holding value pretty well: Omerta One if you would like a great deal on a 43 contact me I will give you a great return on that ZR.
Not that it matters what I think but DONZI zr38 is doing well across the pond racing and they did kick azz in F2 here in apba when they came out racing in rough or smooth water

Donzi's do nothing for me but the important thing is essentially what ever rig makes YOU happier with the dollars in mind obviously.

I won't talk about re-sale or ride or whatever, that is for you to evaluate... all boats are freaking money pits form a bad degree to an atrocious degree, so passion should prevail above all...

Its not the the lower gearcase shape or design of the NXT-1 that is causing handling issues, its the skeg/rudder-length/depth on high X dimension/tight staggered hulls, Fountain and Outerlimits in particuler, look @ the #6 skeg and you could use it for plowing your fields
