There is a Nordic dealer in the St Louis Metro area named Grunningers.

I like the Donzi because they are all composite construction and of course, their reputation for making a very solid boat. I like the lines in the Nordic better and they seem to have more room. Also, the 28 Donzi is a twin, which has its positives and negatives.... The new Heat at least 2K lbs lighter also which makes towing nice.

My wife likes the more modern look of the Nordic boats and some of the graphics schemes. We'll see. I'm still overseas and am on hte fence right now. Should I buy while I'm here or wait until I get back? If I wait until I get back, then I may not have much to choose from in the 2008 Heats, plenty of the Donzi boats. On the other hand, there re sure to be some 2008 leftovers at a great deal in the off-season.

We'll see what happens.

What year is your Heat? Also, which options did you go for? I'm trying to compare apples to apples when looking and have seen as much as 20K in price difference from coast to coast with new Heats.

Thanks

Since I'm a Nordic owner I won't express my preference
because I would readily be accused of being biased.

Well, you own a Nordic instead of a Donzi, so what were the compelling reasons to choose the boat you have right now, biased or not? Thanks for the information!!

Tim, any insight as to when I should buy? I can understand your perspective to sell what you have in stock, but in my position, what would you recommend? Based on what I mentioned a few posts earlier...
