     I saw a intrigue at a recent boat show and was amazed at the fit and finish of this boat. The question I have for the forum is, is this a well built and durable boat.  I would be using the boat on Lake Michigan.  What would be the pros and cons of this boat versus a Sea Ray, Monterey or other boats in this class?  Any regrets from the doral owners out there?  Thank you for any info you can provide.

    There are a lot of things to consider with this boat versus a Sea Ray. First of all, I would look at construction. Doral builds there boat with a balsa core. Sea Ray does not do this until 32 feet. This translates into a stiffer boat with a quieter ride. Secondly, take a good hard look around, everyone and their brother has a sea ray. Dare to be Different! This boat is radically different then the sea ray and also has a larger cockpit with the sliding aft bench. Lastly, you need to run an intrigue. This is an awesome sea boat. Real deep V carried all the way to the stern and some 280-320's and she will never let you down. Trust me, you can't make a bad choice with a doral.

Very solid ride on our Intrigue. Best cockpit layout in it's class, and
great fit/finish and details. I chose it over the Sea Ray and would again
any day. Twin 5.7 280's perform great on this boat.
Being a unique boat, everyone has to come take a look at our boat
wherever we go, so if you want to have a different boat than "the rest"
it's a great choice .
Make sure you get the teak swim platform, really turns heads!
Email me if you have more questions.

Hope you're both still loving it as much as we miss it! Give your wife

I bought a 2005 Elegante left over and find this to be a very well designed boat.  Quite a bit of thought went into the layout and design of this boat - it is terrific. It handles very well - even in choppy water it is a smooth ride and I don't get splashed.  The boat is really beautiful.  Time will tell with reliability and service - only had it out twice.
