We each have our brand. Is it the ride in ruff water? Speed at WOT? Looks? Name? This is not a thread to compare, just to see why you folks chose the Builder you did. I look forward to your responses. DMAN2

I like the Formula because it has a great ride and is built like a tank. If it has lasted this long with no noticable damage then I am fairly sure it will go a lot longer

I like the BEAK, seriously, it looks like its going to jump out of the water, Also Top end is very respectable. And even a nonboater can pick a Fountain out of a group of boats

OK, from a gal's point of view -- always loved boats, skiing, etc. Met my hubby and he had a 18' Donzi ('69). The ride was OUTSTANDING, fast, sleek, handled waves and wakes. Moved up in size to 30' Formula (he kept donzi ;-)) Now 38' older cigarrette. That Don Arnow thing, my husband is hooked. I love the looks, ride, sound of motors....WHERE OH WHERE IS SUMMER??? I'd say looks and ride in big water. Size also does matter!
