I have sold (3) 27 ZRs they run excelent, I own a 26 ZX and the ride is no comparison the 27 ZR tracks real well she is not as bulky as the 26ZX and runs rough water real well, I delivered a boat last summer in the worst conditions possible, my wife came along with the Customer and myself we had to go 70 miles by water through some of the worst conditions you can think of, rain on and off fog, N/E wind and the bay had 2ft- chop we ran the boat on top at 70mph, my wife was in the back and she even said this boat rides better then ours. when we got further south with the fog so bad we figured lets go out in the Ocean before the fog rolled back so we headed out the inlet (This water wasn't good for a 43ft boat) we started with 10ft rollers that turned into 15 real quick, we had fun going out the inlet but turned around once we got out. going into head seas we had as much air as we could stand under the boat and I didn't want to run side ways with these big waves but really never felt uneasy the boat flew straight, so we headed back in felt more like we were coming in for a landing a couple of times. I run a lot of bigger ZRs and let me tell you the 27ZR is a great riding boat.

Frank, is the 27 a sitdown boat? always thought it was, but then after looking at pics, it seems to have standup bolsters.

Yes she is a stand up sit down bolster seat, the boat is actually great to drive sitting down or standing up she has great view either way.

k... how fast you wanna go?
I think mid 70s is pretty good for a 27ft boat.
But a 525 would command more on resale than a 496 that has had mods done to it.

Thanks, that's my new baby! Actually bought it in February but let Mike keep it in the showroom 'til I needed it. Took it to PK last weekend for the first real trip. Great boat! Also, Frank is dead on re: speed. Mike & I saw 72 out of the box in some chop. She's running against the rev limiter w/the 26p prop so that's the first project. I really think with some exhaust & the right prop you could see 75-76. Not 80-82 but, a heck of lot cheaper then $ 30k too. Either way, you will love the boat!

PS: Here's a quick pic:

I would get the h.o. Wait until the warranty is up and put a Raylar 525 kit on it for 5K... save yourself about 15K. If the money isn't an issue get the 525..
