1967 Donzi 18' 2+3 High Performance in Orinda, California

Stock #179062

This 18-foot used Donzi is a FANTASIC antique classic boat. Donzi was founded in 1964 by boat-racing legend Don Aronow and partners Walt Walters and Jim Wynne, the inventor of the sterndrive I/O power system. This is the only DONZI built with a Chevy big block and a left-hand steering wheel. It was special ordered in 1966 according to her owner with a 396 cubic inch, high-performance Chevy Big Block Motor with all numbers matching.

THIS IS ONE OF THE ORIGINALLY MADE LEFT-HAND-SIDE STEERING WHEEL. VERY RARE!

Check out the stringers in the pictures. You can see the way the stringers were built to be modified for the big block. The metal plates were installed at the factory and are on all 4 sides of stringers to compensate for this fast racing, HIGH-PERFORMANCE CHEVY 396 CUBIC INCH MOTOR WITH ORIGINAL HOLME & MOODY OUTDRIVE.

This Classic 18 2 + 3 still has the original Holman Moody Lower unit and it has been tuned to perfection to run with the 396 engine.

She was bought from the son of the original owner. His father is the one who had it ordered the big block. The current owner has collecting boats for 30 years!

She has been run in the same lake since the beginning and is a FRESHWATER BOAT ONLY!

The boat's condition speaks for itself! It is a must-see and runs extremely well. Water trial is a must! Call with questions or to purchase at the number below!
