Danalevi Powerboats Go Retro
And you could win a Danalevi, by helping this boat builder get off the ground.
If you’re into the retro look but you want a boat built with 21st century technology, Danalevi is a new builder you’ll want to check out. This company plans to launch five models from 18’ to 28’ and all of them will feature eye-grabbing styling—combined with modern construction techniques like vacuum infusion, and cutting-edge power options like Steyr hybrid diesel-electric engines or Mercury jet drives.
The most unique aspect of Danalevi, however, is the fact that you can personally play a role in growing this company. And at the same time, you could have a chance to win one of their boats. Danalevi is trying to raise funding to bring their prototype into being, and is using Peerbackers to make it happen. Peerbackers is a website that allows you to make project donations, for as little as $10. Those who contribute $500, however, will have a chance to win one of the first Danalevi boats for themselves; they’ll be automatically entered in a drawing, with a Danalevi as the prize.
