Italian boatbuilder Apreamare has revealed a new cabin version of the Gozzo 35 outboard cruiser -- the Gozzo 35 Cabin.

The new cabin version of the walk-around outboard Gozzo 35 — inspired by the centuries-old tradition of gozzo boats in the Italian town of Sorrento — is designed for owners who want to be able to cruise all year round, in all weather conditions and for several days at a time when desired, as well as in the cooler waters of northern Europe and the great lakes of North America and Turkey.

Designers Marco Casali and Umberto Tagliavini have created a boat that follows in the footsteps of its open sister but with several features upgraded. The deckhouse gives the entire cockpit a sense of protection: the volume of the structure is made to look lighter by the extensive perimeter glazing, which floods the lounge with light and offers guests a 360-degree view of the horizon.

The interiors and exteriors are separated by a four-section plate glass door, which creates a single space connecting the indoor and outdoor settings or, when closed, can protect guests from excessive heat or bad weather. In the deckhouse, as well as a helm station and a functional galley behind it with a sink and hob, there is also an L-shaped dinette to enjoy meals in company and in maximum comfort.

An extensive sun pad forward offers panoramic seating, and the pull-out L-shaped table seats six in the cockpit and the wide side decks. The high bulwarks have also made it possible to raise the deck and therefore increase the volume of the interiors, without compromising the boat’s lines. As a result, the height of the gunwale is 20 cm lower and a rail has been added to maintain the boat’s lateral flow, but also and most importantly for reasons of safety, given this new model’s cruising capabilities.

Design work also focused on the liveability of the spaces below deck, with the aim of creating a layout with two cabins and a bathroom. While the forward area remains basically the same as the open Gozzo 35, the new layout brings the benefits increased surface area for the bathroom and shower. The guest cabin amidships also gains in terms of width, with room for a bed that is 140 cm wide at head level.

The Apreamare Gozzo 35 Cabin is powered by two Volvo Penta D4-270 DPI or D4-320 DPI engines as standard, with optional twin Volvo Penta D4-320 stern drives.
