Boat Aground in Policastro

A ten meter sport cruiser with five persons onboard ended on top of a reef near Policastro Bussentino, to the South of Salerno on the late afternoon of sixteen August.  The sport cruiser and the Neapolitan family was immediately assisted by Policastro Guardia Costiera, and the Sapri military squad.  A bit more complicated the safety of the sport cruiser which had to be removed with caution due to a breach in its hull bottom.  After some temporary repairs to the hull breach the ten meter sport cruiser was later towed to Policastro Busentino marina boat yard for repairs.
This grounded sport cruiser is a Galgiotta Camaro Even mt. 10,60 produced from 1987 to the end nineties.  The Camaro Even followed the styling of the larger Camaro Tris, and was powered by twin Volvo 200hp diesel engines on sterndrives. Replacing the CM Special , the Camaro Even was replaced by the more sportfish inspired Gagliardo 37 in year 2000.  Made in Naples, Italy Gagliotta is known for its fast deep-Vee seaworthy hulls, that received high praises even from the legendary Don Aronow.
