Default Crusier war Donzi, Formula, Fountain ??

I am now concidering a express crusier I have narrowed it down to 3. Each have there plusses and minuses. I have seen the Formula and the Donzi. I spent a little time on the Fountain last year but was not concidering these typs of boats at the time. I will be on one soon.

basic specs:

Donzi 39ZSC- 12'2 beam x 39' long - 55MPH 16.800lbs
Formula 400SS 11' beam x 40' long - 55MPH 15,500lbs
Fountain 38EC 10'6 beam x 37'11 - 65Mph 13,500lbs

Vote for your choice

I have been on all three, but not on water. Donzi hands down. Those speeds for the Donzi are for twin 496HOs, if I remember right. I know you can get one built with 500EFIs, and I bet you can get 525EFIs.

Offshore-Performance.com has a VERY NICE blue 39ZSC, on the lot I am sure they would be happy to sell you. I am pretty sure it has 496s.

The Donzi looks nice and all, but there is just something about that Formula...

You need to put a 43 Fountain to actually compare the same size boats....

Does the Donzi have more features than the Formula? I'm suprised.

The nicest "Cruisers" on Lake Travis are Formula.
