Damn Donzi was not a 27 Zr. & Donzi's spinning out?? Something is being misunderstood here..


I am Donzi all the way.. But Baja builds a good boat that works for many people too.. Jamie

Even though you are a first time boater, I would still go look at each boat closely yourself and if possible take along a non-biased, experienced boater to help you evaluate which boat is right for you. Part of the equation will also be the selling dealership for each brand. Service after the sale is paramount in the boating world. i don't see buying either boat as being a mistake. Good luck with whichever boat you buy!

The 27ZX that spun out was a 1998 and that was the old step bottom boat, The new 27ZRs are built on a completely different platform, They are made the same way the bigger ZRs are made, Low in design the 27ZR is a fast boat she will run 72-74mph with a 496/HO there is a big difference both boats you are looking at are good boats, both have different needs. The 26 Baja is a Deep V runs solid and tops about 66MPH big cabin, and high freeboard. The 27 ZR is made of a Kevalar lay-up lower cabin, long and sleek with twin steps. the difference in price can vary depending what your needs are. On the 27ZR I can't tell you how resale will be because no one has one for sale but if its anything like the 35 and 38 ZR they have a very good resale, I know the 25 Outlaw has a real good resale so I believe the 26 Outlaw will be the same.

While Baja did a nice job with what I seen at the Chicago show on the 26, the Donzi 27 there was clearly better in attention to detail from the sharpness of the strakes to gel work and neatness in the engine compartment.

Donzi would be my choice easily if price was anywhere close. Bonus is, you won't see many duplicates of what your motoring.

It's been for sale at the same place, at the same price forever.

I believe so.

I would still want a Donzi over a Baja though.

I think the fit-n-finish of the donzi is a bit better. Little stuff you will notice. Everybody has a baja, get the donzi and be one of the few with one. Faster too. I dont like the high back head rests though.
