I've been on the 35ZR and was impressed immediately (after honestly not having very high expectations). VERY nice boat. solid as a rock. I would own one in a heart beat.

A staggered 35 Fountain will beat a 35 Donzi Zr with the same power. A side by side 35 Fountain will be about heads up, especially if there is a good chop. If you go staggered you will loose a lot of space on the 35 especially because it is a small 35.

Have you taken a look at the 33 Active Thunder?

Side/side 525EFIs is 92mph+, and will have a cabin bigger than any of the boats you have mentioned. It also has more freeboard than any of them as well. With the bolt on swim platform, its the same if not longer than the 35 Donzi and 35 Fountain. It can be built with side/side front bolsters or split front bolsters; your choice.

Some specs:
50" of freeboard at the front windscreen
42" of freeboard at the backseat
67" of headroom in the head at its deepest point (with side entry cabin)
74" long V-berth; 69" at widest point to 22" at narrow point
66" of headroom in the cabin as you enter (deepest point)

Here is the latest one:

Ping me if you want more info. You won't be disappointed.

Brian, I was starting to worry about you. This thread was 2 days old, and you hadn't flogged the benefits of AT yet.
Glad to see you're still around.....

Just to keep on topic, here is the 35 ZR that is now owned by one of the guys from the NJPPC (Gerry). I was lucky enough to navigate it during the the 2006 1000 Islands with Frank from Typhoon, and we were pulling in boats all day long.
With 525's it flys.
The second pic is to give TomA something to aim for this year.....

From A Boater and a Dealer I sell Fountain Donzi Formula and get the question all the time what is the best what do you like. All 3 boats Top of the line Great resale Great Ride Great quality..... No whats the difference they all cost about the same Fountain Speed... Donzi Very Sexy.... Formula Lots of Room... So what are you looking for 100MPH Go with a new 35Lightning.... 90+ Donzi.... 80+ and lots of Room Formula.... Nobody spend much time in the cabin all 3 boats have plenty of room. All 3 in stock give us a call

Oh I ment to also say...I love the 35 Donzi ZR...great looks and love the flatter looking deck. I like the looks of the Donzi much better than the 35 Fountain.
