    80' Donzi Oh My!!!!!

    Just need some information as to the history of these 65' to 80' sportfisherman battle ships. Are they still in production ? Whats the connection to Donzi Marine as we know it today ? From Yachtworld.Com several are advertized between 65' and 80' years 90 to ? and the name Roscioli is used. Whats the skinny on these Donzi's ? Thanks .

    Slick - Yes these are DONZI's and they are still made. However, in abour 1988 the large sport-boat group was sold off to an independent comany. That comany retained the rights to the name and logo. I think the break is at 45ft. Below is the American Marine Holdings owned Donzis and above is the other company.

    We saw a 65ft and 80ft at the Miami boat show this year. SUPER nice boat rivals any other made. Hatteras, Bertram...none were better, and priced VERY competetively.

    Cool

    T.J.,
    Happen to have a website for the Roscioli boats? I tried a few with that name and some variations but did not find a website.

    Here you go Mark, it's a pretty basic page for a yacht builder, but I bet they don't get many window shoppers ....

    Cool

    Thanks, Boxy! I've always wondered about those "other" Donzi's. Should we contact the "owners club" and invite them to AOTH! LOL Imagine trailering one of THOSE babies into Cumberland and launching from the hotel ramp. WHOOOSSH.
    Good Grief! What kind of fishing tournament do you enter to need one of those? Whaling? Giant Squid?

    slick,
    here is a thread from a couple of weeks ago with some pics and tech info on the 65'. 65 donzi Roscioli is doing a fantastic job building the big donzis- first rate from stem to stern. I beleive the first 4 or 5 were built in sarasota prior to the OMC days. The rest were built in Roscioli's yard in Ft. Lauderdale and there has never been less than a year waiting list to get one of these- generally longer.

    My New Year's resolution was to be more organized and plan ahead.
