New Model: Casa 38 HT

It's been a long time coming for this project to arrive into reality but the new Casa entry level model, the 38 is finally here.  The new Casa 38 HT reduces the South of Rome, Gaeta located builder entry size by ten feet.  The 38 HT is also an entry level model which is suit to purpose and can be as for Italian law, registered under the ten meters legislation as a small boat craft. The Casa 38 HT number one had an interesting red hull color, which outlines more the classic influence of the design as the long fore deck and a nice level free board. Not to high nor low! The interior of the 38 Casa is available in two cabin variants; with the option of having a larger galley to starboard and a more spacious L-shaped settee to port, but this coming at the expense of losing the second shower head.  The exterior deck follows the usual Italian ideology of an aft sun-pad and C-shaped dinette to port, and helm station with wet bar behind to starboard.  Power will come from twin 300hp Volvo engines with stern drive propulsion which should give top speeds of around 38 knots in light medium load conditions.
