Default Buying a new boat, need opinions

I'm in the market for a new boat and I've narrowed my choices down to a couple different brands. I'm having a hard time finding any information about the boats to make a comparison. Any information about these boats would be helpful. The boats I'm looking at are the Dakota 36, Palmetto 36, Donzi 32 ZFO, and the Marlago FS35. Any info on performance, ride, stability, etc.. would be greatly appreciated

For info on the Donzi 32ZF go to there web site www.donzimarine.com

Personally I am not to familier with the ZF line, but as far as the ZX line I do have an opnion since I have a 2002 Donzi 33ZX for sale. Good luck in your research.

Just curious as to why not the Donzi 35 ZFO, since it's maybe a little more comparable to the others in your list? As a Donzi dealer, it's great input for us. Thanks,

You should add the 36 Concept to that list as well, you won't be disappointed.

Yes... take a good look at Concept. You can't go wrong with one. You know that's an Apache bottom...
Luis builds a great boat.

I didn't care too much for the Marlago... Light boat.
I ran a 36 Dakota for an entire day. Good ride with the swells.. shook and shuddered going into them. Nice cabin and under console head. Needs trips if you're a performance guy.
