Discover the new video of Libeccio 8.5 Classic, one of the three models presented in world premiere at the Genoa Motor Show by Gozzi Mimì.
The model, a tribute to the classic Sorrentine gozzo boats of the 1960s, drew attention thanks to the compromise between the charm of traditional bar navigation and the reliability of the latest generation technology.
Libeccio 8.5, a classic style
Its lines are clean, the spacious sun deck is solid mahogany inlaid with maple, the fender pins and bits are retractable and even the throttle is hidden away in a padded compartment.
But this classic gozzo has also all the advantages of modern technology, plus some almost futuristic touches. It has an electric winch, courtesy lights and plexiglass panels behind the steps that lead up to the forward sundeck.
The forepeak provides a spacious double cabin with a fridge and, on request, a toilet. There is also a fold-away coffee table for drinks and suppers.
This model too was designed by Studio Valerio Rivellini Yacht Design.
“This gozzo has an interesting balance between classic and modern,” says the designer about his work, “for while its lines clearly recall the traditional gozzo, there are certain elements that give it an extremely modern look. The canopy mounted on a carbon fibre pole, for example, underscores the elegance and charm of this project”.
