Really comes down to money. If you have infinite get a the G. If you don't, look around for something in your range. Since I don't have infinite money I have a 2 year old Z3 that is definitely not $60,000 less fun or awesome than a new G3.
Purely out of curiousity....... What is a typical OTD price on an RZX3??(just an RZX at that time??) I got to check one out at the boat show last year, but that one was definitely G23 pricing territory, purely going by MSRP. If I remember correctly, the BASE price, without trailer or any options, was 124K. And the total with upgraded engine (450), trailer, flake gel, and options (was loaded), was 180k and change. I can't remember for 100% sure, but I believe the boat show price was 149,995.00.
I wasn't sure if I was remembering correctly, but I did just go to the Tige website, and the base price is, in fact, 124k without trailer or options.
Not throwing the BS flag, or anything like that...... But it does seem to be priced pretty darn close to a G to me. I am honestly curious what these things are going for.
On a side note...... I did really like the boat. It was definitely well done.
