Project: Apreamare 45 Smeraldo

Apreamare presents the project for the 45 Smeraldo model.  This upcoming project represents a novelty in the retro range, and is designed by Architect Tommaso Spadolini for exterior lines and interior layout, and Umberto Taglio for underwater shape and structural planning.  The 45 also represents a return to the Smeraldo name for Apreamare.  What I see from Apreamare is surely a more modern interpretation of the classic Italian 'Gozzo Sorrentino' fishing boat not only outside but also on the technical things.  Some apparent changes are the wooden bulwarks which is now smaller and leaner, and more minimal design to the super structure. Obviously some classic themes remain as the forward settee a design shown by Apreamare in the nineties and since then copied in various other builds.  The 45 Smeraldo will feature an enclosed main deck with saloon, galley, and helm station all located here. So far no lower deck plans are shown but I do imagine this to be spacious mostly for the use of IPS pods.
