Without question, the Donzi 38 ZR Competition is the genuine article. One of the most sought-after V-bottom high performance boats on the water, this superlative ocean racer was designed around a next generation ventilated hull, which offers ideal balance and handling, blistering speed, and an unparalleled rough-water ride.
In addition to its ever-expanding arsenal of championships (six national championships, four world championships, and counting), the Donzi 38 ZR ompetition has earned unanimous praise from critics since its introduction. It was named Powerboat Magazine's "Offshore Vee Bottom Boat of the Year" in 2003 and won the award for "Outstanding Vee Bottom Performance" in 2007, it was featured prominently in the film Bad Boys II, and it has enjoyed starring roles in poker runs from coast to coast. In summary, the Donzi 38 ZR Competition is one of the most coveted and well-respected boats built today.
The 38 ZR Competition's overall performance is enhanced by its low center of gravity and sleek, aerodynamic profile. Careful attention was paid to assure that nothing detracts from the ZR's fluid silhouette. Accordingly, the navigation lights are flush-mounted into the deck. The centerline deck rail has been recessed into a v-channel trough and flanked by a pair of flush deck hatches. The deck rises gracefully to accommodate the twin quarter canopies, and a low-profile engine hatch conceals staggered twin engines of your choosing.
The cockpit features design cues taken from formula-one racecars. Behind the twin canopies you'll find ergonomic, bolstered sit-down race seats for pilot and navigator, while a three-man contoured aft bucket seat securely holds all passengers.
The helm features port and starboard Livorsi instrumentation, racing controls with trim in handle, available cockpit ventilation featuring concealed intakes and adjustable dash vents, forward electric adjustable footrests, custom grab handles, port and starboard coaming storage, and aft storage compartments that are watertight thanks to flush mounted hatches with watertight gaskets and heavy-duty stainless steel latches.
With the 38 ZR Competition's race-proven bottom and power options up to and including staggered Mercury Racing 1075 SCi engines and #6 Speedmaster drives, when it comes to performance the sky's the limit. Unlimited power is available for those not concerned with exceeding race class specifications. No matter. Out on the open water, the few individuals lucky enough to own one of these hand-built superboats all share one thing: an unfair advantage.
