The Donzi Sweet 16 was the smallest boat Donzi ever built and perhaps the most famous. The Sweet 16 possesses classic lines and provides its occupants a fun filled and notable ride. This 1969 Donzi Sweet 16 has been totally restored. It will turn heads on the lake with its flawless finish, classic sporty lines, and an upgraded 302 Ford racing engine with low hours.
The Donzi has had a pampered existence of late. The boat was stored inside from the early 80's until 2010.
The current owner spent 5 years having the boat professionally redone in memory of his father, the second owner since 1972.
The boat has been repainted for a beautiful red and white hull and deck finish.
The newly upholstered cockpit seating consists of a driver's helm seat that swivels and an L-shaped lounge that runs starboard and aft.
The helm gauges have all been replaced with white backed Livorsi II gauges with red trim and accompanying chrome bezels. The compliment of gauges includes a speedometer, tachometer, voltmeter, fuel, trim, water depth, oil, water temp.
The power plant consists of a 302 Ford engine producing 300 H.P. It has been outfitted with a racing cam with Edelbrock intakes and new water jackets for above water cooling and exhaust.
The Sweet 16 Livorsi supplied steering wheel is outfitted with power steering and trim tabs.
A 2006 Haul Rite trailer which has been powder coated to match the Donzi is included.
