As to the guy who said Sonics are sleds, this was taken in 4 to 5 footers at over 70 mph. This is in my opinion one of the best built boats out there.

OK guys I've owned three Sonics including the last boat, a 45' Sonic Pay2Play triple 575s. They are good boats and Jay Ross is one of the best. But if you want to go fast you will get your tail kicked by any step bottom boat. This is A FACT ! I now own a cat and I go fast! really fast!

One thing to keep in mind about that Donzi is it is over 9 ft wide. Friend of mine has one, and had to put prochargers on it to make it go. I also know a guy with a stepped 35 fountain with 500s. Less than 2 footers, over 80 boat. Over 2 footers his wife won't even ride in the thing. 'Course it's a Fountain. Can't blame her for that.

maybe there is nobody out there like bobby S. anymore...
racing a boat has alot to do with the skill of the crew.
IMHO......

Sonics are, and have always been one hell of a boat. I was Jay's GM in 82/83. Ive seen alot of changes through the years, but one thing stands alone... JR has a creative nitch in this industry that many have tried to duplicate. I have a 45 for sale, trip hp 500's if anyone is interested.

Sergiolanc, the newest post on here is 14 years old. XCAV8 hasn't been here in a decade. Enjoy your 33, they are a good boat.
