Just quoting a past post here, They ruled until Outerlimits showed up!! Back on topic the Donzi 38 ZR is a great boat. They handle and run great!

Your are so right about the dock, when you get passed on the water its a different story.

Dan.... you don't have to promote outerlimits every chance you get. It gets a little old-- though I agree with your statement.

Are you serious??? Go back to the little Kryptonite forum! I was responding to an older post a while later since now Outerlimits/OSG is the P1 champions!! Also that the 38 Donzi is a very nice boat!

Ahh, agreed Donzi is a nicer boat. No need to show your jealousy of wanting a Kryptonite. I'll make you a Kryptonite hat and shirt so you can ditch that 10 year old worn out raggy cigarette wear.....

I'm so confused, if you're talking about who's faster in any water conditions look and see who has won the most races and holds the records. If you talking about what boat is best for your specific use... opinions are like (you know) everybody has one. By the way, Fiore hasn't been anywhere near the kilo course in a long time

I have a 42 Ex w/ standard merc 4 blades and my friend has the 38 ZR w/ 6 Blade Herings. Both boats are 525 Staggards. The Donzi has the ITS , the Fountain has standard XR's. The Donzi runs at least 88,89mph from what I've seen while my Fountain runs 82. The Donzi and the Fountain both seem to ride really nice. The bed in the v-berth of the Donzi does not have much head room. I'd be happy with either one really.
