Go-Fast Blast from the Past

Donzi's 50th-Anniversary Classic Series celebrates the brand's longevity.

Donzi Sweet 16

Donzi Marine's Sweet 16, Classic 18 and Classic 22 are now being offered in a 50th-Anniversary Classic Series to commemorate the brand's anniversary. Each boat will be adorned with the new Donzi 50th Edition logo and will feature retro details including throwback styling, deck stripe and tuck-and-roll upholstery.

“We get calls all the time from people who are nostalgic about the Classic series and want to see it revived,” said Johnny Walker, CEO of Baja Marine, which owns Donzi, Baja and Fountain Powerboats. “They feel the same way about Donzi Classics that they do about the Porsche Spyder and other iconic sports cars. In fact, the first customer to order a 50th-Anniversary Donzi Classic 22 said he remembered being on one when he was a little boy at his grandfather’s lake house.”

Larger Donzi models up to 43 feet in length are offered primarily on a factory-direct basis, but the 50th-Anniversary Donzi Classic series is available through the Baja Marine dealer network, which includes Baja and Pro-Line retailers. The new Donzi Classics come equipped with high-output MerCruiser V-8 stern drives that will provide their owners with an outstanding driving experience. They feature high-performance Livorsi Marine instrumentation and bucket seats with a rear bench to keep everyone comfortable.
