Default Donzi's 50th Anniversary

It would be the 2014 model year,since as a dealer we sold some of their 40th Anniversary 2004's. Real shame this milestone will pass without notice.

Cool Thanks for saying something about Donzi's Anniversary

Glad you said something. Is Donzi in business? Are they making boats currently? I heard they moved to North Carolina. Has anybody been there? What's going on there if you stop by the new place.

Happy Anniversary! Some special editions would be nice. They are in business on paper at least. Baja, Donzi, Fountain & Pro-Line. Owned by the same company.

It appears that someone is still making boats under the Donzi name. There was a report last week that the LOTO water patrol is buying 4 Donzi 29' CC's.

I think I read something on Donzi's facebook page that some of Donzi's former employees were wanting to buy Donzi...I don't know if they were serious or not. I wish they would!!!

Robert, it's a nice reminder to see you here. The first classy person I met in the business taught me what to look for in others. Thanks for pointing out the anniversary. There are still a few Donzi ZRC's on my short list.

Donzi 50 ZR 50th anniversary edition!! Ha I wish. I keep in touch with several ex Donzi employees and while Donzi still is in business at the Fountain facility under Baja, they are basically idle. From what I know, they have not built a boat in the last several years. They were making up a story about a 43zr with 1350's that was being built but it was all for hype.

I wouldn't count on anyone buying Donzi anytime soon. I stated on their facebook page that I would love to buy Donzi and get the real donzi guys back and ring donzi back to the top. In a fantasy world, I wold for sure. In reality, I hope someone does
