Paul you should add another comment to your ad, "soon to be collectible." I though of your boat when this thread started. Think about it, it has never been in salt, never rolled over so that would make the boat the only Gladiator that hasn't been exposed to those two common evils whereas the rest of them have done one or the other, and in a few cases both!
And, don't forget, no porti-potty as well.

Donzis are very sought after and have held their values . The Donzi x-18 is one of the hottest classics.
I doubt they will ever catch up to classic car prices though.

They don't even seem to command a premium, that's the problem. The newer 18' Classics still sell for more than the "original" boat that is 40 years old... To me, if something is going to be "collectible" it should appreciate in value over time. That's simply not happening with older boats.

A Riva Aquarama would be a boat that defines collectable.

I agree with ya there man. I went to StanCraft over the summer and all i can saw is WOW. If I had the money, i'd definately snag a "Woody"
