Among the new powerboats under 10 meters (see here the new boats presented at the Genoa Boat Show 2021), the new Libeccio 8.5 Walkaround gozzo by Gozzi Mimì is certainly one of the most interesting in 2021. In the wake of the success of the new generation of walkaround gozzo boats that the Italian brand is developing, this boat combines the tradition of 1960s Sorrento gozzo boats with the liveability that is in demand on board today. The result? Already 25 units sold just a few months before the official launch at the Genoa Boat Show. Let’s take a closer look at this new incredible boat.
Libeccio 8.5 Walkaround – Gozzi Mimì
Developed in co-operation with the Italian designer Valerio Rivellini, the Libeccio 8.5 Walkaround (8.5 m) has all the characteristics of the new Walkaround generation by Gpzzi Mimì. Furthermore, it is the first gozzo of this size to be equipped with a separated head, a cabin and a fiberglass hard top.
Libeccio 8.50 Walkaround is therefore a day cruiser with walkaround console and plenty of space below deck. A good option for sport fishing enthusiasts.

The Italian gozzo thus encounters a whole new livability, which is essential to meet the taste of today’s owners. Even young people are approaching this world-famous type of motorboat with these models.
Libeccio 8.5 Walkaround – Deck and Interior
Climbing on board from the stern we immediately find a large platform from which to access a cockpit furnished with a C-shaped sofa that can be converted into a sunbathing area or a dining area according to requirements. This is thanks to a small table that can be used both for dinners and for aperitifs in the open air, a stone’s throw from the water. The boat also has a galley with a sink and a fridge under the helm seat.
The deck is entirely made of fine teak. Libeccio 8.50 WA is a fast gozzo capable of reaching a maximum speed of 30 knots. Below deck there is a double cabin with separate head on the left.
