Wouldn't the 38ZR be a better comparison?

What are needed are some basic spec on each with equal configurations in order to make a fair comparison. How 'bout it, anyone got some numbers for a late model stepped hull Top Gun with HP500EFI's compared to the 38 Daytona or ZX? Oh what the hell. throw in the ZR too...

HARD FACTS FIRST
Dry weight:
Beam:
LOA:
Deadrise:
Degree pitch:
MSRP with HP500EFI:
Top GPS with stock setups:
Cuddy headroom:
Length/width/depth of cockpit:

THEN SUBJECTIVE OPINIONS
Quality graphic options: A+/-, B+/-, C+/-, etc., etc.
Resale value:
Notoriety factor: (this is really subjective)
Fit & finish: (whatever that really is)
Hull/build: (ability to take a whuppin' long term in the snot...)
Ride: (ability for riders to take a whuppin' in the snot...)

With that let the facts/comments begin......

The F2 Donzi has done well this year, all equally powered and we weigh more and are wide, I really think they have this Z Tech hull dialed in. Especially when you have a motor die, pack goes by, they restart a minute later and pass everyboat for the checkered flag, Savanah, I believe.

Cig, they need no words, they are awesome boats too, I would love to own either. In fact AWESOME is not even close to what they are, they are more luxurious than Donzi's for sure.

I would not pick the ZR over a ZX due to interior styling, I like the typical conventional lay out on the ZX boats and on Cigs.

Either one is a great choice.
What about prices? Do they compare? I haven't shopped either so would not know.

Great data Baja Daze. Thanks
Typhoon want's $399,000 for their ZR with twin 850's
