Project: Di Donna 38 Serapo

Family Di Donna continues to upgrade it's range of fast planning traditional style Gozzo cruisers, presenting the project of the new 38 Serapo, standing between 33 and 42 model. To be available in both Open and Cabin version, the upcoming Gozzo build in South of Rome, Italy proves itself a versatile cruiser, giving strong run for the money not only to other similar traditional builds but also to same sized sports cruisers, thanks to the space provided in the 2 well sized cabins. The numbers for the 38 Serapo are also very encouraging, with the builder estimating 33 knots of top speed with 2 x 370 hp engines, and a high capacity fuel tank of 1200 litres offering a range of 10 hours before refuelling. It will be curious to see if the 38 Serapo will stay with conventional shafts or as the 42 Serapo flagship will also be available with the more efficient IPS drives. Cantieri di Donna founded in 1960 constructs the new Serapo to CE B rating, and follows the successful cross over formula offering a Gozzo with the traditional lines expected from this type of boat but added with modern hull design, and clever layout planning above and below decks.
