2003 Donzi 38 ZX

Buford, Georgia

Trailer INCLUDED - GENERATOR AND A/C with HEAT - Tons of details to know about this boat feel free to call for more information. Less than 120 hrs on fresh and proper rebuild to SCi575's paired with IMCO scX drives and dialed in to PERFECTION. Both engines, outdrives and generator just serviced and winterized 11/22. Dyno'd at 1401 hp combined and built by the right team here in the South East US.  If you are looking for a 38, this is the one.  Built to be bulletproof and solid as a rock.  One of the easiest runs to 80+ mph all carrying the comfort to stay a weekend. New Westerbeke generator installed at engine build. New Dometic A/C system with reverse heat cycle... AND plenty more to review. Over $90k invested after purchase and the dollars all spent where it really matters. Unlike similar competitor boats, the 38zx has room to stand in the cabin for most of us "average" height folks.  Galley left features the main power panel, microwave, fresh water sink, and fridge/ice box with cabinets and storage.  On your right is the head with vacu-flush and pump out. The long bow of the 38 offers a lengthy birth forward and a roomy dinette mid berth. 

The intent with this 38zx was to make an off-shore go fast that performed admirably in any situation, AND was equipped for a weekend tie up with the with the cabin cruisers... And that is exactly what he did! A typical day for this Donzi: A flip of 2 levers and this kept clean 38' of badass would gently drop into the water of its covered slip on the lovely Lake Sidney Lanier.  Pulling off the (used 100% of the time) snap on canvas cover revels the cockpit and you know what's coming! Refreshed Graffig gauges and bezels, everything works and reads nice and clear. Captains chair and co-pilot seat feature electric drop base, and electric adjustable foot rest controlled by either side of each seat.  Wether you want to chill and cruise, or stand roll towards WOT, you'll be comfortably consumed by the deep wrapping bolsters and properly placed handles.  Seating for more await behind you, but choose wisely... They ALL want a ride! One at a time, the big blocks hit a lick, and there is no doubt who just fired up! Behind, you can see the faces, and they read: HOLY S...... !!! A few neighbors might be the "quiet type"... well, SORRY! You can FEEL every cylinder stroke. When you click a gear to roll out, you notice the idle speed and know this beast means BUSINESS.  As that beautiful sound lopes away from the dock it gets quiet, and then you're out of the no wake zone and its on.  An easy roll planes the boat in short time.  With IMCO drives, you can have less worry about drivetrain stress as they are meant to handle up to 1000 hp each. Then moments later your calm "slow" causing at 50-60 at efficient rage and don't worry, there's plenty left.  A cruise around the Southside loop while the crusier group leaves the same dock to set the stage for the weekend tie up.  The Donzi comes flying by the convoy (pics available upon request)  headed north and effortlessly crosses over the 3' rollers and cross chop and disappears swiftly.  Smooth and easy in the 38zx, I personally have been in a similar Donzi 38 drinking a martini, with 2 broken arms in casts, on the Gulf of Mexico (True story). After their run, you hear it coming to the tie up. On the end and ready to escape, the custom bimini is deployed just before the NEW installed, and just had the 100 hr service preformed, Westerbeke generator fires up. A/C starts blowing keeping a comfortable cabin that can welcome what ever your pleasure! Movies and popcorn with family and friends, or Netflix and chill with a special guest... this boat is ready for action. When the party is over it's back to the real world where this boat was kept dry and covered, if not on the included trailer.
