I'd stay away Ken! you could buy the real thing (Donzi Classic) for close to the same $$$$ and not have to worry about resale!
My suggestion: I don't have tabs on my 18 and it rides great. Go drive a Donzi before you make your decision.And so far I have been told you HAVE to have trim tabs on the boat.
I have owned several of them. I still have a 1996 U191 The run out really well. Speeds of high 60's are attainable and the 5.8 Ford seems to do the trick. This is one of my boats with a duoprop (1) FourWinns U19 Fast over the transom. - YouTubehas there been any bored members that have played on one of these vessels??
