The fountain is a solid performing boat , If you aren't willing to dish out the cash for a pantera or a cigarette i would buy a fountain .... That donzi zr is one of the worst large sports boats i've ever been in

What didn't you like about the ZR? What drive/power combo did it have?

So what's the verdict, Fountain or Donzi? The only thing I don't like about the Fountain is the left hand throttles, other than that I think they make a great boat. The Donzi looks AWESOME and the performance #'s seem to be there.... just not alot of info on the Donzi's 38 ZRs.

Default Go Ruff ...........

Top speed don't mean squat, especially when its only a few mile an hr ....... It sounds great at the dock, but the rough rider's going to be the faster boat in reallity ..... Back in 03, when Donzi campained the ZRC it was slower than any of the fountains in the kilo runs, but smoked everything on the race course, completly domminated ...... That's when I saw the light ............LOL...
