If you are looking for a unique Donzi 22C with a little more excitement, check out the Donzi 22 Classic Black Hawk edition. They redesigned the hull, put a 502 in it, and a Merc Black Hawk surface drive. I hear those are exciting boats!!!!

But it sure would be hard to beat the Sutphen if you want a new boat.

I have ridden in BLee's Cig 20. It is a super-nice boat. I think it runs low to mid 80s. It sure sounds good!!!

If you really know your boats and want something that gives you the “nerve endings in the hull” feeling, it’s hard to beat the 22’ Progression. I always say it’s like “driving a Formula 1 car on the street.” Mine runs just a tick under 78 MPH with a 240 HP Mercury outboard. Want proof it gets up on the pad and flies?

Yep, I hear ya on that. It takes some driving, but that is what makes it fun.

And on a semi-related topic, since you mentioned the V-King, I have always liked the Hydrostreams and Allisons with the loaded for bear outboard on the transom. Now that is cool, and I like the picture of the blue 22' Progression above. Looks sharp.

Not lookiing for a new boat (out of my snack bracket) so looking around year 1995-2005 (not $2000), a mint mint trailer queen.

I've talked to a guy with the Donzi Black hawk, and he LOVES it!

I asked about issues with the black hawk, and he had the drive fully rebuit, with better components and had external steering.

A bit, but that's part of what makes it a driver's boat. If you watched me drive it, you'd swear it didn't chine walk at all.
