“Boat arrived today. Wow. I was thinking next week. It was Jeff’s day off, a Friday–he was kickin’ back with a beer when it arrived–he’s blown away. Put it in his front window in his living room after moving a few things around!

I’d say he’s got awesome.

Thank you.”
– David –

” I made the purchase in response to the Special Mailing. My theory is I will save money in the long run by grabbing a special price on certain items I may not need at that time. Mind you,, It’s just a theory! Plus, you guys do have the best clutch system out there. And trust me, I have tried them all.”

– James Rinaldi –

“I just wanted to let you guys know how great of a job you are doing. I recently ordered a Zenoah BZx2 performance package and most of the hardware to rig my boat. The packaging was excellent, the delivery was very fast (it arrived at my door step a day before it was even supposed to be shipped!) and the communication level you guys are on is out of this world, I’ve e-mailed you many times and have sometimes received a reply within the hour. You guys are on the ball and I will not shop anywhere else for my boat supplies. Thank you very much for all that you have done, keep up the good work!”

– Jerri Waddell, Minnesota –

“The speed of delivery is also great , sometimes if I order stuff in the
Netherlands (I own 14 RC cars) it takes more time to come to my place than
this time from the States.”

– Ben Voorbij, Netherlands –

“BONZI Sports is the greatest boat firm, with fast deliveries and service.”

– Kenneth Svensson, Sweden –

“I just wanted to send you guys an e-mail thanking your for your great customer service and commitment to the R/C boat scene.
… I purchased a Zenoah 26 from you guys as well as some other smaller items.
Right now the boat is not completed but I hope to have it water ready by spring.
You guys answered a lot of questions and helped me a great deal with this build…

I don’t often sit down and send an e-mail to someone like this… I was so impressed by Bonzi’s commitment to the hobbyist and their products. I hope to see you guys grow and continue to show the support you have given me to the rest of the community. ”

– Rick Jones, New Jersey –

– Christopher Azzopardi, Malta –

“I received my BZ1 + clutch today, and I’ve got to say, I am impressed with the quality of your product.  As a mechanical engineer, rarely do products meet, let alone exceed my expectations, but your CNC clutch is something that is made with such precision that I am astounded, thank you for the quality product.

Thanks again, I’m rapt with the amazing quality of your in-house components (CNC clutch) and now plan to order my remaining hardware from you in the near future.”

The following question and response was posted on RC Universe:

Question: “Happy New Year and VERY cool boat. I have a CT 03 hull in bare form
and have been keeping a close eye on your posts. I have had great luck with
Bonzi on small stuff and really am impressed with them–hoping they will
build my CT 03 as well. After running your boat, is there anything you
would have changed or tweaked if you were to do it again?”    Trey P.

Answer: “Trey, I can put my hand on my heart and say that Bonzi did everything just right. I would have changed the price if I could have, but we did not cut any corners
and the boat has come out perfectly. It runs like a dream, is very balanced and I
believe that with a little tuning I could see speeds of 70MPH+. Hope you had a
good Christmas and New year.”     Regards, Simon Miller

“Hello!! I have received the 84″ boat and it looks fantastic NICE WORK 🙂 Everything looks nice, tank you!!!!!The cargo went fine no damage.
I can’t wait to test it I will send you pictures of it soon it match fine with the Conquest!! Once again TANK YOU!!!!!!”

– Vidar Skalevik, Norway –

“I suppose (that) is because of customs declarations that you had to go through all that trouble for me. Thanks a lot though, I appreciate it. It sucks over here and this new hobby will give me something to look forward to every day and help me get through these few months. I will send pictures of my boat when I am through. It is a Arrow Shark and I hate it – the way I got it – it was all chewed up, bolts falling out, not a drop of locktight in it, is what I found while stripping it down. But I have recently stripped it down and am prepping it for paint it will be silver w/ black flames. I am not gonna advertise for the jerk-offs who threw this boat together, so when I get through, it will be meticulously looked-over and very clean. I may buy my next hydro hull through you guys in the future. I think I would like to get a better boat. Thanks for your help guys and gals.”

– Michael Kent, Armed Forces Europe –

“Dear Bonzi,


You have rolled my Christmas, New Year and Birthday all into one for about the next 10 years. I am blown away by the quality of product that you have sent me. It really is to good to be going in the water. Dean certainly knows how to leave a customer speechless. If the COLTS make that Super Bowl Final it is on me!

Hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and new year and that the year ahead brings all your dreams true because you have given me my dream boat.”

– Simon Miller, United Kingdom –

“Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2008 to all the team Bonzi. Thank you for everything, Website clear, Fast shipping, great service. You are the best.”

– Jean-Michel Douillard, France –

“Now I am not a very religious person, but GOD BLESS YA, the
quality of this gear is unreal. I am really happy with everything, and of
course, the delivery speaks for itself. Thank you very much and happy
Christmas to all you guys over there!”

– Paul McDonnell, Ireland –

“Thank you very much, I am very happy to hear that…you have been wonderful to deal with; that is why I purchase from BONZI. Thank you again…for all of your help! You are an absolute pleasure to deal with!”

– Joe Guiliano, New Jersey –

“Hi from the UK ,received the items I ordered today – fantastic service, no one else seems able to match you for speed and reliability of service. Well done.”

– Roger Barnes, United Kingdom –

“I have received the boat today and I can only say one thing: WOW IT IS THE

It almost sunk when I drooled all over it 😉

I just want to say a BIG THANKS for all that you have done for me from the
first time I wrote to you, you have giving me the best and nicest service I
have ever had ;-))

The only sad thing there is, is that I will not be receiving any more of your
kind and nice mails now that I have received all the things that I have
ordered. So I have to make more orders in the future ;-))”

     – Glenn Draffin, Queensland, Australia –


“I would be hard pressed to find customer service like you display on any product I have ever bought, be it a new car, vacuum, exquisite meal, new roof, guitar lessons, etc.

The craftsmanship, attention to detail and fantastic customer service truly sets BONZI Sports apart from all others in the R/C world. In fact, these traits that they display would make it hard for any company that custom builds anything for anyone to even come close.”

     – Bill Bowman, Laguna Beach, California –


“Well I got to run the boat finally today — motor preformed flawlessly and the running hardware was quite impressive — the boat never turned so sharp before and I am quite satisfied with BONZI which is a good thing considering that it’s all yours besides hull and radio box!! I have enclosed some pics like I promised and I appreciate all your help and quick shipments.

P.S. You all were right – the water pump worked great :)”

     – Tom Wedding, Kentucky –


“Thank you so much – all arrived – hope to deal with you again. Been a pleasure –
super fast delivery. It’s quicker buying off you than buying something from Australia. Thanks again!”

     – Paul B., Australia –


“I finally finished the boat and ran it for the first time last Sunday. The engine went magnificently – easy starting and reliable running – not once stalling out on the water.  Please pass on my thanks and congratulations to whomever put the engine together for me – they did a beaut job!”

     – Graham Lloyd, Australia –


[sic] “OK….I’m a 58 yr. old boating novice, i have an old gas boat that has no clutch…  Shoulda bought a BONZI to start with…but now that is water over the dam.”

     – Dave Tessmer –


“Thank you for your help and putting up with all the qustions and phone calls, since I first visited the States, the one thing that stands out the most is the customer service, nothing seems a problem to you all. Many thanks for everything and I will call when the boat arrives. I will mail a picture of the boat and as soon as its all built. Again, many thanks for a first class service.”

     – Peter Burke, United Kingdom –


“Hi Daniel! Just wanted to let you know that the engine really moves my hull! I am really impressed on the performance and overall quality. I think I will be eventually changing all my boats over to your Zenoahs.”

     – Lee Fisher, Canada –


“Thanks again for that, I must say that the service that you guys provide is great. I hope that when they see the boat run here with your engine, you get some more orders. We are having the Australian Titles here in Brisbane this Christmas. If you ever need a place to stay you are more than welcome to stay withi my wife and I here in Brisbane.”

     – Nigel Brehaut, Australia –

“Just thought I would let you know that at last I was able to give my first Bonzi engine and gear it’s first run today. It fired up straight away, ran perfectly throughout, as did all the running gear etc. Seemed to match the hull well and I was extremely pleased for a first run. Thank you.”

        – Tom Pearce, United Kingdom –



        – N
oel Matlock, Florida


“I just wanted to drop a quick note to say thanks for e-mailing me the manual for the boat. The boat is an extreme blast to run. I charged the batteries, filled up with gas and two pulls of the cord the boat fired right up. I am very impressed with the boat from build to performance.”

       – Harry Lodbell, New York –


“I ordered a modified Zenoah G260(BZ1) and added a big bore carb w/velocity stack, an engine mount w/coil relocation bracket and a throttle cable. My Vendor of choice was Bonzi Sports this time. As for customer support goes, I give them a huge thumbs up. Dan? I believe was his name – was extremly helpful in explaining different running gear options and motor options and overall extremly nice. I would recommend Bonzi just based on his customer skills.”

       – “BrushlessHawaii,” –


“I’ve been using the boat on the weekends and it is awesome. I am continuing to figure out how to tune the engine and radio gear. It’s really easy to run and work on.”

       – Jim Warmington, California –

“Thanks a lot – I think you are the best supplier in the world.
I buy lots of RC stuff from all over the world, no one compares
with BONZI and I mean it. Anyway, thanks again for
your brilliant service.”        

       – Winston Micallef, Malta


“I know I called Friday and raved about my new BZ-1 engine already, but now I have concrete evidence on how good the engine really is. Sunday was a full-on test day, Video recorders and Gps systems. My boat with one of your competitors’ modified engines, maxed out at 40 MPH. I have sence removed that engine and dropped my new BZ-1 in. After 4 tanks of fuel, with very littletweaking, same hull, prop and setup was GPS’d at 45 MPH. The real thrilling part is I know there is more speed in this engine, it will just take a few more tanks of fuel to really get the engine “run -in.” Again, many thanks to you and all at Bonzi Sports for you help.

        – Jason Trask, Florida –


“My boat arrived this morning. It looks great that my wife says to put in the sitting room not in the pond…
…can’t hardly wait to be in the pond. Thank you so much, the crew at BONZI did a great job.”

         – Joseph Lazaroo, Singapore –


“Thank you very much, I did not look at my e-mails till now. I will be getting much more stuff and love your products. And love your service.”

      – Nicholas Nowak, Massachusetts –



“My name is Charles, and I wanted to thank you for your personal attention (and answers to my extra questions), your support team are exceptional and made me feel like a real valued customer. Keep it up and thanks again!”

 – Charles, Canada –

“Thanks again for all your support throughout my build, you guys offer A1 service with an awesome product.”

     – Bob & Nel, Australia –


“My BONZI arrived a couple of weeks ago and she looked beautiful. The work done on her is top notch, my compliments to your painter and the person who put the boat together.

I took her for her first sea trials and she preformed fantastically, excellent stability and maneuverability.”

     – Michael Ajini, Cyprus –


“Not much sleep last night – too excited – FedEx said the package will be ready for collection anytime after 10am.

Up early – good trip down the freeway – little traffic – easy through the city too – must be getting close

Yep – there’s the FedEx sign – oh you beaut! A parking spot right at their door

Give the man the tracking number – no problem he says – he’ll bring the package outside for me – too big to go over the counter! Wow, it is big – hope it’ll fit in my compact wagon – oh oh, it won’t fit!

Yes it will – just move the front seat forward a bit – see – sits there neatly!

Now concentrate on driving home – stop looking over your shoulder at the big box

City and freeway still behaving – smooth trip back north

Reverse into the driveway – open the tailgate – slip out the package – it is big!

Ease it into the workshop – on the floor – clear the bench

Open the top – ohhh – another carton inside!
No it’s not – just a huge protective cardboard sheet – good old Bonzi – careful packaging for my treasure

Lift off the cardboard protection – oh oh, I must have got the wrong boat! This one’s all black – and wrinkly!

Wait – it’s just more good packaging from the careful professionals at Bonzi – black plastic protecting the boat – and look at all those airbags – and the big foam blocks front and back!

Watch it now, take your time, ease up the back foam with the boat – balance it – now ease the front out of the carton – up onto the workbench

Now slip off the plastic – won’t budge – I see – some tape – peel that away – and the plastic’s in two bits

Off comes the back bit – slowly, slowly – ohhhhh, that purple is gorgeous!

There’s the name – MAGICIAN VIII – doesn’t it look super!

And the transom – the hardware – the twin exhausts – bonzer bobby dazzler!

Okay, rest the boat back down – better get that water stand ready – ease the boat onto that

Now the front plastic – slip it away – oh my goodness gracious – just look at that paintwork – the colours – the depth – the shine – the gleam – amazing! awesome!

Take a breath – stand back for a minute – just admire, enjoy!

How about inside? Release the hatch latches, gently raise the canopy/cowl – great balls of fire! Just look at all that purple and silver and cables and wires and there’s the clutch and the two water pumps and look at the pair of quiet pipes and the dual tachos and the neat radio box and that inside aerial Barb explained and most of all look at that twin cylinder engine! Smoley Hoke!

Now wait a minute, it can’t be that good – go inside – have a cup of coffee – come back for a reality check

Coffee’s tasteless for some reason – finish it off quick – get back to the workshop

I was right – the boat isn’t that good – it’s much better!!!!!!!

After all the hard work and waiting and challenges – Magician VIII is here and it’s simply wonderful – all my expectations exceeded – and the colours and paint are magnificent – as is the detail of the fit-out.

Thank you so much for all your fantastic efforts – and please pass on my gratitude and admiration to everyone else who contributed along the way to bring my dream true.”
