If what I've heard about production numbers is correct that could be the brochure boat you have . Supposedly there were only 2 green 25's made . One was the twin engine boat in the brochure the other was a slightly later single engine 25 that I now have.
Out of interest if you go through this forum you can find posts of some of the early brochures , probably put up by Mr Vinyl .

Thanks Madbouyz,
I have that brochure. Quite amazing that it might be our boat. The previous owners bought it from Magnum. I see that you have a Donzi. I had a 24' Donzi cuddy cabin with twin Holman Moody engines before the Magnum.

Very cool . What model Donzi 24 was it that you had ? If it had HM engines I can only think of one or two that it might have been .
The story about there only being two green Mag 25s was relayed to my brother at one of the Miami boat shows a few years back by a guy who was working at the Magnum booth. In his younger days he used to lay them up so we would like to believe that he knew his history .
According to your hull number it came out of the mold on the 11th of September 1972
Mine is MAG250080273

I don't remember the model. We only had if for a year and a half. I looked online and couldn't find a picture of one similar. It didn't look like a typical Donzi except for the bottom of the hull. It was raised to enter the cuddy cabin and looked like a 60's or 70's Skipjack. A friend of mine had a Donzi 21. I loved the sound.
Thanks again for the Magnum information. We've enjoyed it for may years.

hmm , I'm not familiar with Skipjacks but the only two models that I can think of that might fit the bill were the '7 Meter' and one of the Harry Shoell designed 24 footers , but it's less likely that the 24' series by Harry had HMs in them than the 7 Meter .
I believe that Brownie had something to do with the 7 Meters
In a few years , looking back , I'm sure you're going to miss the Magnum. It's a great hull , very hefty build and thus weight with a fantastic ride. Not a rocket by today's standards but it can crush its way through anything .

I have missed the Magnum for about 9 years. We put it in dry storage because we both had some mobility issues and there it has remained.
I'll see if I can find any pictures of our old Donzi.

And include a pic of the Magnum too if you can !

(oops , you need 10 posts before you can put up pics )

GreenGo25 10-23-2018 12:54 PM

Thanks, I didn't know that.
