1998 Donzi 16 Classic, also known as a "Sweet Sixteen".

The most iconic shaped and styled and powered watercraft ever made, instantly recognizable by a true boating enthusiast.

It sports a 4.3-liter, six-cylinder MerCruiser Alpha-One, with through-prop exhaust. Motor trim makes for a perfectly dialed-in ride.

The wrap-around seating is as luxurious as the positioning arrangement is flexible.

Upgraded Quicksilver throttle/shifter gives an instantaneous response.

Quicksilver stainless steel propeller, 21-pitch, is custom applied, but it is not right for high altitude.

For a Colorado buyer, Seller will substitute two appropriate aluminum propellers alternatively suitable for mountain and Front Range altitudes.

For low-altitude buyers, you would get the stainless-steel prop.

Information On Condition

The owner states it is in clean, near barn-find condition. On a scale of 1-10, this one, on an uninflated basis, is a solid 8. Overall, ready to run.

The fiberglass on the boat is great, as is the gel coat. A couple of chips, less than 1/2-dime size, and some cracks and scratches here and there, including what is going on under the red stripe at the bow point. Very few minor issues, much, much less than you would expect for a boat this age.

The top red/black stripe is bright and vibrant; side stripes are slightly faded, but still intact. Hull is clean and bright.

The Interior is factory and is fresh because of how this was stored; a minor tear on the back of the captain's chair where it hit the throttle control. A slight crack at the top of one of the side cushions. (shown) No fading, no moldy smell, and clean. The seller will include a NAPA upholstery repair kit to fix a couple of minor blemishes.

Per the owner, Interstate battery in Fall 2020.

The cream-colored cover fits well, is older and well used, but is non-trailerable.


The trailer is galvanized. Some minimal bolt rust, but none appears on the trailer itself. Bunks, both the lumber and carpet are intact. Tires have approximately 200 miles on them (distance from Grand Junction, where they were put on, to Grand Lake) and only six months of weather exposure.

Gauges all in working order; switches also all in working order. Horn works intermittently.
