I had a chance to check out the 38 ZR up close at the PRA run in Sarasota last April. What a sweet ride, not quite like anything else out there.

Sean and I saw it this afternoon at the show and it is indeed an impressive boat.

I especially liked the fact that you could look in the through the deck hatch and see the construction quality. Really well done.

The picture doesn't do it justice at all.

It may just be me, but the 38 ZR sure looks like a Donzi Criterion that they made around 1979 I believe. I think the Criterion was the slickest looking boat Donzi ever made. It is based on the same hull as the 22 Classic.

I see some family genetics in the old boat passed to the ZR.

The 38ZR is pretty neat,not a lot of boats out there quite like it. We've run ours in several poker runs and had lots of fun with it,awesome in really rough water. Ours will be in the Birmingham Boat Show Jan 29-Feb 2. If any OSO members plan to come I can supply free passes.
