Manufacturer Info



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.

Boat Description

The truly innovative 38 ZFX Open features a wide-open forward cockpit boasting unique, lounge-style wraparound seating and ample amenities. Aft, you'll find all the fishing features you'd expect on a large offshore center console. Viewed as a whole, the 38 ZFX Open offers more versatility than anything else in its class.

The 38 ZFX Open's spacious forward cockpit features a comfortable wraparound seating area. Richly upholstered seating surfaces wrap 180-degrees around the forward cockpit, providing plenty of comfortable seating for passengers. These seats combine with integrated wraparound backrests, and the forward facing seats are contoured so they're ideal for sun lounging. The net effect is a feeling of luxury not found on any other center console.

There's plenty of underseat storage for a boatload of guests to stow their belongings, and once aboard you'll have no problem entertaining them thanks to the forward cockpit refrigerator, self-draining cooler, wetbar, and beverage holders galore . A cockpit table lowers to work in conjunction with a filler cushion, converting the forward cockpit to an expansive lounge area. Aft, there's a comfortable fold-away seat with integrated backrest.

At the helm, choose from the standard side-by-side drop-down helm seat, add a second row of bolster seating if you like, or opt for the electric Sport Bolster option, which integrates the throttles into the armest, putting them right at the driver's fingertips. Step down into the 38 ZFX Open's roomy console to find a head compartment with nearly six feet of headroom, equipped with a freshwater sink, shower and available electric head.
