Web: Gagliotta New Web Site

Italian Neapolitan builder Gagliotta updates its World wide web showroom to a new design. Not very known outside the Italian peninsula, this builder has great respect mostly attributed to the racing success of founder Salvatore Gagliotta. Founded in the early fifties in Naples, Mergellina, Gagliotta starts producing his first prototypes, which are small fast boats based on a Hunt hull design. Years pass and in the sixties Gagliotta moves from a hand building method to a semi production GRP construction way, and in the same time starts to compete in the Offshore competitions. In 1968 it also receives an honourable mention on the renowned Italian Nautica Magazine where the Budda Blitz cruiser competing in a race keeps following the faster boats and even top US powerboat builder Don Aronow compliments this feat saying that the only European hull worth copying is that of the Naples built and designed Gagliotta. In the year 2000 the Naples builder introduces the 37 Gagliardo designed by Stefano Mango which is still in production as 37, changing with this model the philosophy concept of all the range evolving it from a fast sport boat type to a sportfish cruiser. Today four out of five models follows this design accept for the 2009 introduced Judel & Vroijlik 35 Lobster. The current Gagliotta range features five models which start from 32 to 52 feet, with a new 56 flagship currently in the works. The new Gagliotta web site is available in Italian language only and takes you around with the following buttons; Home, Gagliotta Shipyard, Contacts, and News.
