Gozzi Mimì has chosen the Genoa Boat Show for the international debut of the new Libeccio 8.5 Walkaround, another step forward by the shipyard along its path of innovation in the gozzo sector.
Designed by Valerio Rivellini, the new model offers, for the first time in this type and size of boat, a separate bathroom and unprecedented on-board liveability thanks to the walkaround configuration. Also on display next to the new Libeccio 8.5 Wa will be six of the most requested models by the shipyard’s customers.
The Genoa Boat Show, to be staged from 16 to 21 September, will be the setting for the world preview of the Libeccio 8.5 Walkaround, the new Gozzi Mimì model that once again stands out for its innovative clout and the desire to modernize a sector rich in ideas and increasingly at the centre of the interest of a growing number of boat owners. Together with the new Libeccio 8.5 Wa, Gozzi Mimì will be bringing eight other six models of the gozzi range to the Ligurian Boat Show the Libeccio 11 Walkaround, the Libeccio 9.5 Walkaround, the Libeccio 8.5 Sport, the Libeccio 8.5 Classic, Libeccio 7.5 and, in the end, the Libeccio 6.5 Center Consolle.
"Genoa is a not-to-be-missed appointment for all enthusiasts of the sector and certainly represents the ideal location for the presentation of the Libeccio 8.5 Walkaround, which we believe can encounter great success even in the hearts of those owners who have not yet approached this type of boat," said Domenico Senese, owner of Gozzi Mimì.
The Libeccio 8.5 Walkaround, designed by the Shipyard with the collaboration of Valerio Rivellini, features a number of the characteristics of the most recent and successful models by the Shipyard, presenting for the first time on a gozzo of this size a separate bathroom and a rigid fiberglass hard top. The idea that led to the introduction of this new element was to combine the winning features of the 8.5 Classic, which reflect the fascinating design of the Sorrento tradition of the '60s, with the same configuration of the 9.5 Walkaround, the livability of the external areas of which conveys a strong feeling of freedom on board.
The bow features a large sundeck while the stern cockpit is furnished with a C-shaped sofa that can be converted into a sunbathing or dining area. A small table provides the chance to organize outdoor dinners and aperitifs and below deck is a double cabin.
