A company that takes its name from the iconic Don Aronow, the “King of Thunderboat Row,” Donzi arguably introduced the world to the concept of a sleek, fiberglass speedboat. From the 1964 introduction of what’s now known as the “Sweet 16,” to today’s popular ZF models, offshore speed, performance, and style have been brand trademarks. Though the financial crisis took its toll on the brand, Baja Marine acquired the assets of Donzi in late 2012, and production of these high-performance powerboats has resumed full-force.
Following on the heels of its popular 38 ZFX, Donzis 35-foot ZFX model offers the same great features as its 38-foot sibling in a more affordable twin-engine package. The 35 ZFX features an inviting, curved forward seating area a significant departure from the standing room only layout of many center consoles. In addition to its roomy cockpit, the 35 ZFX also features an enclosed cuddy cabin with V-berth, while inside the console theres a stand-up head compartment with nearly six feet of headroom, containing a freshwater sink, shower, and available electric head. The helm features a distortion-free, tempered glass windshield, and Mercury Smart Craft multifunction gauges. The richly upholstered side-by-side dual helm seat with drop down bolsters assures comfortable seating would be right at home on an offshore race boat, while thickly-padded, richly upholstered seating surfaces guarantee a comfortable ride for everyone on board even offshore at speeds in excess of 60mph.
