Hello,

Lurked around here ...had a user ID at one point but can't seem to find it so activated a new one. Plan on buying a Classic 18 or 22 soon but this boat caught my eye the other day.

At any rate, can any of y'all identify which model this is?

Wow, looks like a Spitfire to me. http://www.donzi.net/photos/osaffell526.jpg

Can I ask where it's hiding?

Louisiana but that's all I'll share.:cool:

So is a Spitfire 24 a pretty decent boat?

Surprised to see a triple axle trailer under a 24 foot boat.

Wow.......how did you find that Spitfire gem? That triple axle is a give away and I bet it spent time out by Havasu.

Agreed that 3 axles seem like a lot, but I think most of them were sold with twin smallblocks, so they're not light.

A few people around here have experience with them. I don't. But it is my favorite Donzi on paper at least.

Cool find.

Bill (oldredalert) is in the middle of the restoration of one.
He found it's a fairly complicated boat and therefore fairly expensive to restore.

They're really pretty.
