The Italian gozzo is experiencing a second youth and the credit goes to those shipyards that do not stop innovating, mediating between innovation and tradition. The Ligurian gozzo is one of the cornerstones of regional and national maritime history. Like all boats, it has continued to evolve over time. The Patrone Moreno shipyard has been building gozzo boats since 1922, and this year, to celebrate its 100th anniversary, it has decided to launch a special version, the Patrone 100. It will be available in two versions: Patrone 100 Inboard and Patrone 100 Outboard.
P100 is the new 10-metre Ligurian gozzo that marks the beginning of a new path for the Ligurian shipyard. The starting point is to be found in the elements that characterized highly successful models in the Sixties. To this is added everything that technology allows today. This was the starting point for the work of Tommaso Spadolini and his studio. The goal? To create the right balance between the innovative drive and the DNA of a brand that has its roots in the work of shipwrights.
Patrone 100 – Deck
A number of different layouts have been conceived in the 10-metre length, starting with a deck with a central T-Top, a relaxation/convivial area in the stern and a large sundeck in the bow. As befits an Italian brand, the open-air hob could not be missing, positioned in this case under the helm seats to optimize space.
The materials used are perhaps the clearest exemplification of the mediation between tradition and innovation. Wood has always been one of the essential elements of shipbuilding. The search for newer, more sustainable materials, however, has led Patrone Moreno to choose EcoTeak for the entire deck of the P100.
Patrone 100 – Lower Deck
Below deck, the P100 focuses on freedom of customization with various layouts designed to suit different types of owner. The Patrone 100 offers no less than 7 possible configurations that can be achieved on two main layouts.
The Deluxe version is designed for those travelling mainly in pairs and features a single XL cabin in the bow, a central living area and a head. The Family version has a second cabin with twin beds without sacrificing a convivial interior space.
Patrone 100 – Propulsion
Speaking of propulsion, the P100 comes with a plus that makes this 10-metre gozzo practically unique on the market. In addition to the traditional inboard diesel engine, in fact, there is also the option of installing outboards. This is not only a choice dictated by market requirements, but also a call to the past that pays homage to the Patrone boats of the Italian golden decade, admittedly smaller, which were offered with this type of propulsion.
The new Patrone gozzo will be capable of cruising at 24 knots while the maximum speed is expected to be around 31 knots.
