The charm of old-fashioned boats, the convenience of modern technology. There is a Ligurian shipyard that is bringing a new generation of goiters to the fore, making it extremely modern and innovative. It is the Patrone Moreno shipyard, which has been building Ligurian gozzo boats inland from Albenga (SV) since 1922, and the model that best embodies its philosophy is the Patrone 100.
This month it is featured at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023 and at the Genoa Boat Show 2023 where the new Deluxedel P100 interior layout will be unveiled as a world premiere.
Patron 100 – Exterior
The Patrone 100 is, indeed, a 10-meter-long Ligurian gozzo (homologated at 9.9 meters, hence watercraft, 11 overall) and available in both inboard and outboard versions. With this model, the shipyard wants to pay homage to the charm of the Dolce Vita and the century-long history of Ligurian shipwrights, who made iconic specimens and imprinted the silhouette of the gozzo in the ideal imagination.
Shapes and deck design echo the styles of the 1960s Italian nautical, with a layout typical, however, of today’s boats. The classic aft platform leads to the sheltered cockpit, where the fold-down table offers the possibility of carving out a second sundeck. Class, build quality, and details make it a very attractive goiter.
The command post is protected by the t-top (hosting two solar panels) and served by two single seats with armrests, which conceal a full kitchen with double burners, sink and work surface. Through the side walkways there is safe access to the large bow sundeck.
The work done by the construction site and architect Tommaso Spadolini made it possible to create a very habitable below deck: a large dinette, a bright master cabin and a bathroom with separate shower.
The height of the interior is enviable for the category and is close to six feet, but the brightness is also appreciated, thanks to the long, almost full-wall windows.
As for the as many as seven possible layouts, the two main versions are the Family and the Deluxe, which will make its debut at the Genoa Boat Show in its variant with a galley below deck.
The first (Family) offers space to make a second cabin with two single bunk beds, while the second (Deluxe) combines the master cabin (with a larger bed) with a large convivial area with a C-shaped sofa in the dinette. In both versions the bathroom is complete with a shower.
The shipyard has decided to propose the Patrone 100 In two different propulsions. The inboard diesel one allows two engines of 184 horsepower each to be installed as maximum power, The motorization recommended for the outboard version is instead two 300 hp engines.
