Attention speed enthusiasts and collectors!  If you already own a mid to late 60’s top 10 muscle car like a 1963 to 1967 shelby cobra roadster or a 1963 to 1967 corvette stingray, imagine how heart stopping and cool it would be if you could add this 1967 Donzi Ski Sporter “sweet 16” to your collection. Here is a rare opportunity to own the best of the best!  Over $40,000 in receipts spent on the professional restoration of this excellent piece of mid to late 60’s high tech nostalgic design,  performance and attitude. This boat was built for high speed performance and durability. the gross weight is only 1500  pounds and speeds of 70 + miles per hour were easily achieved from the design of the deep-vee hull with 24 degrees of transom deadrise and a pair of lifting strakes on each side of centerline. the boats underwater shape contributes to its stability as does the ample beam of 7 feet and the wide transom. These boats were sold with the company promise of “the softest riding, driest high speed sport boat ever built.” 100% correct original Holman & Moody 289 v8 engine. v-drive final drive and propeller. Restored custom Donzi trailer is included. The Donzi Ski Sporter was born on Miami’s “Thunderboat Row” in 1964. This was the time that the pioneers of wild and wooly performance were turning out revolutionary fiberglass boats. The 16-footer with the racy lines and bold stripe was designed by Jim Wynne and it was raced by no less a personage than Mr. Don Aronow. (who in the high performance boating industry is the equivalent to Mr. Carrol Shelby).
