Reallly? I looked real hard at their 35. Yes, the cabin is unbelievably spacious. But the sun pad is not even long enough to lay out on. That was a deal killer for me.

I have owned two sonics and they both were great. The company has also made a turn for the best in the new layups, seem much better than mine. Good Luck.

I like the resale of a Donzi and the solid ride. They also have a great new choice of paint jobs

Well now. THATS important when buying a performance boat. Don't forget to get the cool looking speaker grills too!

And oh yea. I saw the 38 t/s Cig in Powerboat Mag. What a beautiful boat. I was suprised at the price with the fairly tame power. That boat with the same power as my 386 is 8 mph faster.

I wonder what the difference in ride is between a 42 step and the 38 t/s?
