Shipyard reveals first details about “Patrone 45”

The boat is not scheduled to be unveiled until the autumn, but the Italian shipyard Moreno is already offering a first glimpse of its new craft: the “Patrone 45”.

According to the shipyard, the new model builds on the success of the “Patrone 100”. The shipyard launched this boat two years ago to mark its centenary.

“The ‘Patrone 45’ was created on the wave of the success of the ‘Patrone 100’ and at the request of many owners who wanted the same charm and elegance of this 10-metre boat on a larger scale,” comments Tommaso Spadolini, who designed the boat. “For the ‘Patrone 45’, as for its predecessor, our aim was to create an open cruiser designed for people who want to spend the whole day outdoors, without sacrificing absolute comfort in the interior.”

When designing the new “Patrone 45”, Tommaso Spadolini started from the concept of conviviality on board, which was very close to the hearts of Gianarnaldo and Benedetta Moreno, the fifth generation of shipyard owners. The architect’s aim was to reinterpret the classic charm of the Ligurian gozzo in a modern form, they say.

“Patrone 45” runs on 440 hp

At the same time, attention was also paid to seaworthiness: The hull, derived from the shipyard’s other models, is powered by a V-Drive gearbox and a pair of Yanmar 440 hp turbodiesel engines.

“When developing the ‘Patrone 45’, we took all the comments on the Patrone 100 into account and further improved the concepts of seaworthiness and cosiness,” explains Tommaso Spadolini. “This boat is also characterised by light and space, by the constant visual contact with the sea, even below deck, thanks to the large windows that reach almost to the top of the bow,” adds the boat designer.

The large bathing platform at the stern, which leads to the cockpit, is protected by the high ship’s side and offers a dinette with space for up to eight people, served by a well-equipped kitchenette. The bridge can be furnished to the owner’s taste, while two large walkways lead to the large sun deck measuring 2.50 by 2.50 metres.

An interesting solution, specifically requested by Gianarnaldo Moreno, is the stern sofa, which is raised hydraulically to facilitate access to the engine room and simplify maintenance work. Another aspect worth mentioning is the careful selection of sustainable building materials: the deck is made of eco-tech, which not only looks good but is also easy to handle, while resins with a low environmental impact were used for the hull.

The same care has been taken with the interior, where the shipyard’s tradition of tailoring each boat to the owner’s needs is evident in the five possible layout solutions with up to three cabins and, in each case, two bathrooms. “The only element we wanted to make immovable is the owner’s cabin with bathroom in the bow; everything else can be developed according to the wishes of the future owner, who can also decide whether he wants a second covered galley or just the one in the cockpit,” specifies Tommaso Spadolini.
