New Model: Apreamare 66 Maestro

Launched the past Spring the Apreamare 66 Maestro represented a lot of first from this Naples, Italian company.  Important novelties came from the 66 Maestro, being it is the first new model of Apreamare since this is being owned again by the Aprea family, and second is that is also hull one to be powered by pods.  Fast forward six months later, and today Apreamare features already three new models with pod propulsion.  Born as a redesign of the 65 Maestro, the 66 and the use of Volvo IPS pods, features a new hull shape, and structures to suit the Volvo propulsion system needs.  This resulted with designer Zuccon redesigning the interior of the 66 Maestro, which now has bigger cabins, and the bonus of a fourth room.  Most important is also a full beam owners stateroom located to midships, being much more spacious. Crew quarters located to midships behind the owners room have also gained volume and also feature an utility room, and now two cabins.  Power data from the twin Volvo 900hp is excellent delivering 32 knots max speed, and a 27 of cruise.
