    Hornet for the purists

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/DONZI-HORNET...wer_Motorboats

    This is the one amigos - 427 too. Too bad I own one already.

    As I recall the story on this one...older member, bought the boat as a demo a few years off season from a dealer. There was some rubrail damage from its time as a demo model but otherwise in pristine shape. Pretty sure this is the same boat. Also appears in the model directory picture.

    Who owners it now?

    Did someone here buy the Hornet 2&3?
    I have far too many boats, just ask my Wife.
    If you have something of great quality, and you take care of it, it will last forever.

    I don't think anyone bid on it.

    The ad:

    19FT DONZI HORNET ; ENGINE, OUTDRIVE, TRANSMISSION "borg warner velvet drive" excellent cond. upolstery, gelcoat, gauges, steering whheel, windsheild etc. all original excellent shape. Boat was kept on cradle under boat house from NEW to 2011. I am second owner and have used it sparingly. previous owner used it one to three times a year for the past fifteen years. The 427 pushes her at 56mph with a very smooth exciting ride, the transmission provides effortless gear change and powersteering is abreeze. I am selling her only because were buying another large boat. need boat sold kinda quick so i will consider "reasonable" offers. 410 218 5089 to answer any additional questions
