Default Donzi 27 ZR, Pantera 28, Apache 28, Cigarette 31 Bullet???

I have recently sold my Donzi 26 ZX to a fellow board member, Thanks OSO for helping me sell it, he got a great Donzi and deal. My problem is I cant seem to find a good used replacement boat. I have tried to find a 28 Apache, they are hard to find in good cond. I also like the Pantera 28, but there are not many of them for sale at this time, I also like the Cigarette 31 Bullet, but I am not totally convinced it is the boat for me or the area I boat in( shallow water), The most logical choice to me is the Donzi 27 ZR, There seem to be some good ones for sale, but nobody want to deal right now, I would think with the market and economy the way it is dealers would want to move thier inventory. I really dont understand? I think all the boats I have named have good point and bad. Trying to find a replacement boat is not a much fun as I thought it would be, I dont want to wait to buy before summer. Any info or help would be app. Thanks everyone here on OSO , and happy new year to all.

Look on the OSO classifieds. There's a 28 Apache for what looks like a decent price. Also, a Cig Bullet isn't going to draw any more water than anything else. I'll bet there isn't 6 inches difference in depth draw on all 4 boats you listed. And the Cig will have the nicest cabin of the 4 you picked.

It's all about the famous "special use" chair in the Bullet, huh?

Buy the Apache.

Why?

Because Apaches are better than Cigarettes.


(what better way to start the new year?)

Here we go Chris now this post is going to be about which, or who's boat is better. Well I would love to here everyone opinion on which boat is best form personal experiance. I dont really dont have a budget in mind, but I want a great boat, Turnkey, that may need some work, at a fair price, that reflects the market's value. I do love the Cigarette Bullet, and Apache 28, but I also have only owned Donzi's so I am kinda partial to them, I have owned a 22 Scarab, 18 Classic Donzi, 22 Classic Donzi, a 22ZX Donzi with a 454 mag EFI Procharged, and the 2001 26ZX I just sold. The Donzi 27 Zr seems like a great all around boat, space, speed, value, and stlye.
