Boat Review: Donzi R-80

Donzi's 80-foot yacht offers owners enough space and amenities to make transoceanic travel a comfortable experience.

October 12, 2001

Roscioli International, builder of Donzi sport-fishing yachts, has announced the production of its 80-foot hull. The open-bridge yacht is powered by Detroit Diesel DDC-MTU 16V2000 marine engines. Tank tests have shown that the R-80 should achieve speeds in excess of 36 knots.

Built with cored fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP), the Z80 features Roscioli’s trademark “total beam” construction technique. The full-length fore and aft stringers and numerous cross members form a support structure that has proved rock-solid on previous Donzi hulls. With her 3,500-gallon fuel capacity and overbuilt construction, the R-80 serves as an ocean-going yacht with no geographic boundaries.

The R-80 features a three-level layout. The main deck level houses the salon and low-profile galley. Forward and down the companionway is a queen-size berth with private bath, a guest stateroom with private access to the day head and the master stateroom with queen berth. The master head includes a tub and shower with large vanity and large storage lockers. Down one level is the two-berth crew area with full-function head, laundry area, machinery room and private entrance to the engine room.


Trimmed with hand-selected teak, the R-80’s cockpit houses a complete bait-prep center, sink, freezer, tackle drawers, in-transom fish box and transom door. Shore power, telephone, TV and water inlets are self-contained in shore power inlet boxes located on both port and starboard sides.
