Default 28 Donzi vs 25 Outlaw

Im wondering which one has more cockpit space. I like the donzi because the option of having twins vs the single. Cabin isn't that important since I will not be overnighting. Also which will handle rough water better? Any other pros, cons on the two would be appreciated. Thanks.

Go with my 28 apache in the OSO classifieds. Much better rough water boat than the donzi. Doubt you'll see any noticable change in cabin space until you get to 32ft.

I love Baja's but if the money is the same I'd go with the donzi also. The y have a step in the hull too.

I'm kinda leaning towards the donzi myself. Money wise they can be had for about the same. @ Tex I would love to have a Brave, we had one when I was younger, it was a center consule with twin johnson 225's. Great boats, but I am finanacing and a 1990 would be tuff to get it.

just out of curiousity - why are you comparing a 25 Outlaw to a 28 Donzi? Donzi makes a 25' or 26' dont they? so you are at least comparing apples to apples...or compare the 29' Outlaw to the 28' Donzi if you want twins. Or did i just mis-interpret and you have two boats in particular that you like and one is a 28 and the other happens to be a 25.

I can help you get a loan. Just sat down with a few bankers the other day that are looking for anything they can get.

Two in particular. Both are about the same money and year.

Not trying to be a jerk, but if that Donzi is a ZX model, some boats in that series did have handling issues. Make sure you take both for a test drive and put them through some real turns before buying.
