Call the factory and talk to Craig Barrie, the same Craig Barrie that put Cigerette on the map.

Thank you for posting this gentlemen, the bs quotient around here is WAY more than knee deep sometimes..

I had a 38Zr 525 boat before the 39Tg 700/Nxt.

The Donzi is a fast hull but does not ride as well as the Cig. The Cig is considerably more stout. Fit and finish goes to Cig as does paint. The difference in price is obvious. The Donzi is still a lot of boat for the money though.

Check out the Donzi 38ZR Comp. I doubt there is a cig that tough.

Best looking V made, in my opinion.
