For me, no. For my Dad, yes. He has owned many black boats and loves them.

The Miami Vice 38 ZR Donzi is still all black!

Did it get interior color change ? I remember a thread on here about it and thought they said they were changing colors to help it sell.

They did change the interior from black to silver but not the paint.

Well they are half way there. The deck would look good in silver with maybe a dark red boot stripe

How can you say the movie was stupid? Any movie with hot boats and hot chicks is 2 thumbs up in my reviews! (what was the movie about?)

I'd be much happier if Mirage did the side of my boat black all the way to the back. Guess I stuck with the 1990 look , unless spend some $$$ to redo the gel . Black is beautiful !

Fred you are correct they repainted it black because it was scrached up from the movie we used it for the islemarada poker run rite after that, Donzi told us you can walk on the deck with shoes, were repainting it... Really was not to scrached but they wanted to sell a nice clean boat. the deck was so hot you could not walk without shoes and you could feel the heat in the cockpit coming off the boat. not for me.
