Projects: Parisi 850 Open, Parisi 850 Cabin

Founded in 1979 but with a real story that started in the thirties, Parisi has in recent years joined the Inrizzardi Group. The 850 which will available in two distinctive Open and Cabin style is the first Traditional Gozzo Cruiser project to come since Parisi joined the Italian Group of boat builders, which today counts seven important brands to its name, all located on the West sea part of Italy. Pictured above is the 850 Open project, which distinct itself from the Cabin version presented below with its lower profiled upper cabin structure. Other differences are the galley up on the main deck, and less spacious interior, this having three berths coming from a convertible V-shaped dinette to fore, and a single adult or two children mid ship berth. Below is also a separate shower head. Power options are from a single 230hp or twin 160hp diesel engines propelled with traditional in line shafts. While having an identical hull as the 850 Open, the Cabin version represents a real impressive interior offering superb accommodation for a Traditional Gozzo Cruiser of this size. In fact the 850 Cabin will offer an interior boasting four berths in a forward vee shaped double, and in a second mid ship located double bed. Apart this the 850 Cabin also offers a galley below, and a dining table for four which can convert to an additional berth. The 850 Cabin is also available with a stainless steel radar arch as pictured above, or an all weather hard top. Both Parisi 850 Open and Cabin will be built with a fibreglass hull, but will also have traditional amenities like full teak deck outside, and a wooden toe rail. The power options are also the same as the Open, with a single 230hp or twin 160hp engines which the builder estimates max speed of 30 plus knots, and a cruise of 22 to 24 knots on both versions.
