New Model: Apreamare 45 Smeraldo

Apreamare presented the 45 Smeraldo at the Cannes show the past September.  The 45 Smeraldo is a return to a name used by Apreamare in the nineties, and is a design of architect Spadolini for exterior lines plus interior, and Umberto Tagliavini for hull shape.  Measuring 45 feet overall the new Smeraldo keeps the Italian Gozzo fishing boat lines, but gives a further touch of modernity compared to the other current Apreamare models, although surprisingly there is a no in fashion big view windows in the lower deck cabin area.  The latest Apreamare traditional 48, and 64 models have in fact featured these to midships. The interior lower deck offers a two cabins plan with owners suite to fore.  A crew cabin is located to port side behind the well sized galley.  Power is from twin Volvo 370 or optional 435hp engines with IPS pods propulsion.  The 45 Smeraldo is the second Aprea which goes the pod drives propulsion route following the use of these by the 66 Maestro launched the past Spring.
