Actually I own a ZX my wife loves the cabin but The ZX is a heavy girl and crushes waves. The ZX is in a class of its own not a big fast performance boat but its not a cruiser, She is the perfect blend with all the amenties, Microwave, Fridge, AC, Heat, full head, shower, Plazma TV, Sony Playstation and High cabin.

Hey Robert good call, I know my wife has a sense of humor and likes a good laugh " Heck Shes Married To Me" so I did edit it to be safe

GOT CABIN??


Seems like the Donzi guys broke out the comp ZR when the pleaseure versions can't keep up. Want to compare a comp ZR, compare it to a 38 Race version or 42 PR.

I do this for a living, Donzi's are very nice boats, hell their knocking my door down to pick them up as a line at Smith Mountain Lake. 38 to 38 >>> or comp to PR edition, the Fountain is going to be faster, period. However as I stated in the beginning, their are more factors that should/and do go into buying a boat, and what is best for one is not always best for all.

So Frank, again just to be clear, when you say she is the perfect blend with all the amenities are you speaking of the boat or the wife ?? LOL No more edits required.

I can say both, I have never ran a Poker Run without my wife since 1998 she has been on my side and at one time wanted to race a boat with Candy Kennedy all girl crew. When we drove the 38ZRC the day before the Poker Run in Sarasota she was my wheel girl and I was at sticks, she had no problem handling that boat in the gulf at 115 actually she loved it. Mike Fusco has Jet Set 40 Skater with twin Turbines she has been on that boat several times and says there is nothing like going 196mph in a boat.
