Described by Donzi as a performance center console, the 38 ZSF is an offshore fishing boat with a deck and cabin layout designed to appeal to day cruisers as well as hardcore anglers. Like all Donzi boats, the 38 ZSF rides on a high-performance stepped hull known for its superior rough-water handling characteristics. While she’s certainly capable of serious fishing activities, the cockpit of the ZSF is a little small for a boat this size. Two in-deck fish boxes are standard, and a huge 65-gallon livewell is concealed under the aft seat. At the transom, a bait prep station includes a cutting board and freshwater sink. Guest seating is provided by two cushioned seats forward of the helm. For overnight trips, the Donzi’s compact cabin is equipped with a full galley, port and starboard seats that convert to a dinette via a slide-out table, V-berth, and a large head with sink and shower. The deep walkarounds of the 38 ZSF are wide enough for easy bow access, and visibility from the raised helm position is excellent. Additional features include a foredeck sun pad, cockpit bolsters, and transom door. Triple 275hp Mercury outboards deliver a top speed of over 50 knots.
