As a Fountain owner I have to say that Fountain is last on my list. This is mainly due to personal experience and speaking with other Fountain owners. The lack and total disregard of customer support Fountain is a direct result of my opinion. Cigarette owners have had the most good things to say and seem to be the happiest with customer support from the manufacturers and mostly there dealers. Bravo and Kudo's to the Cig folks. Vee Bottoms only here.

1. Cig
2. Apache
3. Outerlimits
4. Nor-Tech


91. Scarab

Come on now. This has been an amazing hull. Going from a Donzi to this was like using a knife to cut butter over a 2x4. I still cringe on a few waves but I always land smooth.

FB Design by Fabio Buzzi. Why? Because they don't break, structurally or mechanically, and that's a pretty damn good reason... something like 1300 hours on this baby and never had to do anything but routine maintenance.

Classic no nonsense V bottom wave crusher.... Apache.

I guess if LUCY had been posting more pics recently, the vote
may have gone another way.

When talking favorite is one thing, When showing hard facts and numbers it's a whole nother ball game! No recent V-Bottom has made more of a splash in offshore racing than the Donzi 38 ZR. By Winning back to back APBA offshore National Titles in 2002 and '03 and by currently holding the top point standing positions in both APBA & OSS this boat has been a champion since the day it rolled off the line.
