Dragonzi boats

It is said the Dragon is dead long live the dragon

It looks like the race boat manufacturer Dragon as successfully campaigned by Mike and Jackie in P1, may be combined with the Donzi boat company, should this be so I personally think this could be a big plus for both brands any others have any thoughts on this merger

And on a separate note the wig buys Baja boats it's all happening across the pond...it's not only their housing market going through A FEW CHANGES

And if this merger goes ahead will this mean Mike and Jackie's boat will be worth more money as it will be a thorough bread as opposed to a mongrel

It doesn't say that Donzi has bought Dragon, only that Craig Barrie will head up sales for them.

I hope they have acquired Dragon, as injecting some cash into the boat from Donzi would be fantastic!

Industry Veteran to Lead Donzi Marine Sales

Craig Barrie, who has worked in the high-performance industry for nearly 30 years, was hired by Donzi Marine as the company’s vice president of sales, the company announced.

Barrie, 59, founded Dragon Powerboats in 2003 and had been involved in retail sales at FastBoats.com for the past four years. Previously, Barrie started in 1984 as vice president of sales and marketing for Cigarette Racing. He then served as Cigarette’s CEO and president until 1999.

“Craig’s long-time relationship with Cigarette and his work at Dragon are invaluable in the premium high-performance boat field,” said Lee Kimmell, CEO of Donzi’s parent company, American Marine Holdings in a statement. “As importantly, Craig has his finger on the pulse of the retail market today, particularly as it applies to the Donzi buyer. His encyclopedic knowledge of the marketplace, specifically as it relates to our brand and positioning, is of paramount importance to us.”

The boatbuilder is looking to Barrie to increase the company’s market share.

“This is far more than an executive changing brands,” said Josh Stickles, Donzi’s vice president of marketing in a press release. “Craig has an across-the-board wealth of experience in sales on both the manufacturer and retail level, he’s been a custom builder, he has acquired and set up dealers and he is a born boat salesman.”

Donzi Marine is based in Sarasota, Fla., was founded in 1964 and builds more than 25 models from 16 to 43 feet. The company’s lineup includes the ZR line of high-performance boats, ZF series of fishing boats and the innovative ZFX line of performance center-consoles.

Donzi is a division of American Marine Holdings, which also operates Pro Line Boats.
