New Model: Apreamare 11m Gozzo

In a publicity stint which started in June and lasted over two months the Gozzo from Apreamare has finally arrived.  This new eleven meter model, and soon to become range is designed by Brunello Acampora of Victory Design and inspired by company boss Cataldo Aprea.  This is a very interesting product and once again we see a geniality from Cataldo Aprea challenge his Neopolitan routes and bring another different stint to the traditional Italian Gozzo fishing boat.  The twist here, makes the Gozzo range a very stylish day or weekend cruiser.  A few surprises come into this new eleven meter Gozzo with the most notable that it is powered by stern drives; standard single or optional twin units what is a first for Apreamare.  The accommodation layout of the 11m Gozzo is really spot on.  The main deck offers a central settee with a C-shaped dinette looking forward, and a bench looking aft which converts to large double sun-pad, at midships is a central helm station, to port side is relaxing lounge settee, while astern of the helm is another settee.  If desired this area will also be offered with a modern designed T-top which thanks to extendable bimini and forward and aft removable poles, can cover the whole deck from fore to aft  Below the 11m Gozzo offers a galley, shower head, double berth forward cabin, and double midships located berth.  The accommodation is enough for long weekend trips, but the small fuel tank of 450 liters leaves a bit to be desired if you choose the twin engines installation.  Compliments again go to Apreamare for breaking monotony, it is not the first time this Neapolitan builder does this, so chapeau.
