I guess we could all argue the Pro's and Con's of both Boats, Style, Quality, Room, Construction, but your the one thats going to be laying down the "Cake" for it!!!
Go to the Plants, check out the Construction, Go for a Ride and Drive,, Who takes care of you the Best,, Warranty?? Who returns your Phone Calls?? 5 or 10 years down the Road, which one is still Solid, any Spider Cracks??? most return Customers???

My Buddy here at Ky. Lake Owns the New 46 Sonic,, I think its his Third Sonic,, its the First Sonic with a Staggered Set-up,, Its Awesome!! although I've never seen or Driven the 45 Donzi!!! Here's a few Pic's of Randy's Boat<<

Lots of good stuff here, though pretty predictable.
Sonic guys like Sonic, Donzi guys like Donzi.

Scott B: Gorgeous boat. Feel free to post more pix.

thedonz: Do you really not know who designed the Sonic and Apache hulls? And Formula. And Donzi. And Cigarette. And pretty much every deep vee out there. I assumed you were kidding, but if you're not....

I'll say this about Sonic; if you ordered anything from them before the personnel change, you better check and see if it ever got ordered.

This type of debate can go on forever, the bottom line is you are the one who has to sign your name on the dotted line and it is you who must make the choice. They are both great boats and I'm sure what ever one you choose you will have tons of fun with it, good luck in your search.

I like them both. But I'll probably buy another Sonic. 7 years of pounding the crap out of it on Lake Ontario and no stress cracks or loose components.

Sonic. At least they will take care of you if there is a problem.

Donzi, you'll have to fight tooth and nail to get anything fixed under warranty. Thier customer service leaves alot to be desired.
