The Donzi 38 ZF has been designed to offer great looks, blistering performance, and unmatched versatility. Designed with thoughtful features throughout, this offshore speed machine performs equally well whether tournament fishing, cruising, entertaining, diving, or pursuing any other activity.


The 38ZF is loaded with fishing features such as massive insulatedoverboard-draining fishboxes, a 28-gallon illuminated livewell with high-volume pump system, two removable coolers, ample rod storage, and locking tackle storage compartments in the console. Floor hatches with stainless steel dog-down latches allow access to substantial additional storage below deck.


The 38 ZF has been finished with upscale touches throughout. The sculpted, richly-padded drop-down bolster seats at the helm would be right at home on the sportiest high performance boat. The same goes for the wraparound cockpit coaming bolsters. There's room to stand inside the roomy console with fiberglass inner liner, where a freshwater sink, shower, and head are housed. A curved console windshield offers great looks as well as protection from the wind. Standard for 2009 is the new fiberglass hard top, which includes integrated lighting and locking radio box, and offers plenty of protection from the sun.


The 38 ZF is available in both open and cuddy configurations. The cuddy version offers a forward cabin with a fiberglass liner for easy cleanup, and a large v-berth with storage beneath. Meanwhile, the open version offers even more storage and room to move, with a wide-open, clutter-free cockpit floor extending all the way to the bow for full 360-degree fishability. Those seeking additional seating and an even greater list of amenities should check out the Donzi 38 ZFX, and ZFX Open, which are based on the same great-performing 


In either configuration the 38 ZF provides an ideal combination of performance, comfort and utility, putting even the most distant waypoints within reach. With its proven ventilated hull design and triple Mercury 4-stroke Verado outboards, the 38 ZF is capable of producing speeds near the 70-mph mark, with nimble handling and a smooth, dry ride.
