    FZR and FZS-different hulls?

    Can somebody categorically confirm or deny this please??
    No Guessing!
    I always thought the FZR and FZS had the same new hull but a different top deck.
    I have been told today that the FZR is the only one with the new round hull/no chines, and that the FZS has the same hull as the SHO models.
    I agree they look slightly different in the pics with the FZR showing some kind of step, but personally I don't think this is true, but I wanted somebody elso to confirm.
    Thanks in advance.

    I am pretty sure the hulls are the same, just different seat. The FZR and FZS are different than the SHO Hulls though.

    I can confirm the two FZ models do share teh same new high-performance hull! It has ~15 cm less length in the waterline compared to the HO/ SHO.

    And the FZS has a boarding step. That is why you see a size difference in the specs.
