Definetly check with Magicfloat (Robert). He is a dealer for Formula and Donzi, and a great contributor to this board. I know he is at the races in Daytona this weekend. I wonder if he's rooting for Donzi or Formula?

Von Bongo you said it not me, I only wanted to speak about boats that I had first hand info on. After the 32 I didn't want to look at anymore.

It's all in good fun, I used to have a beaker so I feel I have earned the right to poke a little fun at them.

Still nice boats though.

The D effect

All the boats mentioned are great boats, you need to ask yourself if you want cabin room or top end speed. Hustler, Velocity, and Fountain are going to be the fastest only by a 1-3 miles per hour, but you sacrifice the cabin. If you are not over nighting its not a problem, but for weekend trips you may want to look at a more spacious boat like a Cig, AT, or Sonic.

Take a look at the 41'velocity the velocitykendo has posted in the classified section. I know this is more boat than you have listed that you are interested in but it can be bought for $194,000. that is less than what you want to spend a a great boat. I have personally ridden in this boat it is awesome and only has about 50hrs on it so it is not hardly old enough to be used.

Default Great Boats

Everyone of the boats listed would probably fit your profile. I personally would have to go with the Velocity because I have been in each of the boats listed and I can say that the Velocity has the cabin room that will compare or exceed most other boats of equal size. Also, don't expect to pay the prices you suggested. I am sure if you are interested in a 39 or 41 Velocity, you should call me or Ken @ Velocity or PM us. Speed will be up there with the best of them, I guarantee

A 39 or 41 has the same you as a Sonic????? no Velocity has near the room of a Sonic, a good boat but not roomy.

I personally have not been in a Sonic so I could not say. I have a friend who has just bought a 42 Sonic and will have it home soon, so I will have the opportunity to check it out. They are very nice looking boats.

Ok then I'll go easy on ya, I'am 6'6" and can almost stand up straight in the head. if your 5'5" you can walk around in the cabin no problem. I have been in the 39 and 41 they are nice but the low head room and small head is what kept me from buying.
