Apreamare has decided to give a second life to its Gozzo; a traditional Italian fishing boat launched 170 years ago. Presented at the Cannes Yachting Festival, this 10-meter long open yacht is made for family outings and relaxed days at sea with friends. “Gozzo is the new boat originated from an idea by CataldoAprea, the result of a partnership lasting well over ten years with designer BrunelloAcampora of Victory Design and manufactured by Imbarcazionid’Italia, a company belonging to the Cose Belle d’Italia group,” explains the brand in a statement.
The Italian manufacturer launched the Gozzo in 1849, and the company has put in a lot of efforts to make its concept a success. The idea was to turn this iconic and traditional fishing boat into an object of lifestyle. The GozzoSorrentino was initially made entirely of wood, but with the evolution of maritime technology, it is now made of glass fiber and precious woods.
This cabin cruiser boasts a walk around deck and a large cockpit at the back; In front there is a large sun deck, allowing passengers to tan and enjoy the sea. The Gozzo is powered by two 200-horsepower Volvo Penta engines but is also available in a mono-engine configuration for younger audiences.
The silhouette is very streamlined and modern, but which also has roots in the extremely elegant “GozziSorrentino” pleasure craft produced by the Aprea family in the 1960s that still sail the seas in Sorrento, Capri, and Positano even today.
It has excellent sea-keeping properties, low consumption values at low speed but also sporty qualities that are expected today, of the utmost comfort, while speed sailing.
“Gozzo is an entirely brand-new boat due to its hull, drive motor system and technological solutions; it is already destined to become an icon, to mark the history of the brand, an unrivaled masterpiece”
“Gozzo is the result of years of innovation, a creation that can revolutionize the way in which people see and enjoy life at sea. Gozzo is an entirely brand-new boat due to its hull, drive motor system and technological solutions; it is already destined to become an icon, to mark the history of the brand, an unrivaled masterpiece,” concluded the Italian manufacturer.
