Project: Castagnola 24 Storica

Giovanni Castagnola with his Costruzioni Navali Tigullio, presents a project for a new 24 Storica model.  This new pocket sized super yacht, designed by architect Michele Cadore, with engineering by Giovanni Castagnola will be a fusion of traditional styles concentrated in a one and a half deck.  You can look at the 24 Storica for looking very traditional up top, with its raised saloon half deck area, looking very Nordic or representing the old fast commuter yachts of the early twentieth century which come from New York, USA.  Her interior will offer three spacious double cabins, with an owners stateroom located to fore.  Construction of the 24 Storica continues the virtues of the yard with wood, used along the more modern aluminum material.  Power will be from twin 1100hp MAN engines which should give a top speed of 28 knots, and a cruise of 26.
