2000 Donzi 80 Sportfish

location icon Sarasota, Florida
Year 2000
Length 80 ft


Sea Student is a very nice example of what Donzi/Rosciolli created that started the modern day Mega-Sportfish rage.  She has been updated to the tune of over $300k in interior and exterior improvements in the past 14 months.  The boat is powered by Twin DDC/MTU 16V2000 1800hp engines with only 2700 original hours.  The electronics have been updated with 2 new Big screen Garmin multifunction units including HD Radar and new KVH Sat TV system.

Sea Student features a huge open fly bridge arrangement with a unique air-conditioned helm enclosure.  The Fighting Lady Yellow hull paint is in great condition and high gloss aft buck and teak decking give the vessel and exquisite feel.  The interior features an extremely comfortable salon, oversized galley, large master and VIP staterooms, stacked bunks in the guest stateroom and a crew cabin that accommodates 3 with access to the engine room.  She is set up for long range cruising and tournament sportfishing, but could also double as an awesome, super spacious live aboard vessel.

Experience the Donzi/Roscioli Legacy at its best in this unique Sportfisherman!

The side decks are surprisingly large for a sport fishing yacht.

There is a large sun pad on the centerline aft of the anchor windlass. The dinghy davit is installed to port with the dinghy chalks installed on the centerline.


The fly-bridge was found clean and neat with good seating. The helm was found on the centerline aft with all engine controls, gauges and electronics all easy to hand. This open fly bridge is unique with the helm area fully enclosed with side doors to port and starboard and is fully air-conditioned. There are wrap around windows with a windshield forward equipped with a windshield wiper and washer.

All the way forward is wrap around seating with a large table in front and good storage below. The center of this seating opens up to good storage and the two “Brownies” dive compressors. This area is well protected by the hard top and three quarter enclosure. Visibility is adequate from this station.

The cockpit is a good size and comes with a transom gate and deck hatches for access to the steering gear and a ladder up to the fly bridge. Also in this area is built in seating forward to starboard.

The galley is forward to port and was found clean and neat with all equipment in good working condition. This area is open to the salon with four bar stools on the aft side of the galley counter. The dinette is opposite to starboard with wrap around seating and a table in front.

The cabins were all found clean and neat with each head also found in good condition.
