The renowned Naples, Italy-based Victory Design studio, under the expertise of Brunello Acampora, was on a mission: To successfully reinterpret and modernize the much-admired and chosen by European glitterati, the 1950s Lancia Sorrentina.

The result is the splendid Lancia Aprea 52, a luxurious, high-performance yacht — the first of proposed models from 31 to 72 feet.

“Six generations of family boat building has resulted in a new adventure, taking Lancia Aprea into the 22nd century with modern composite construction and an up-to-date interpretation of boats with historical significance,” says Michael Sinacola, president of Fratelli Aprea USA.

The Lancia Aprea 52 presents the lower deck in two configurations for the American market. The Cruise plan is complete with a pair of staterooms, one head and a settee, while the Lounge Cruise plan offers two cabins, one head and a forward dinette.

Getting fore and aft to the sunpad areas is easy and safe via deep walkways on either side. The helm is a work of art, and directly behind is a dining table.

There is a range of power options, including twin 800-hp MAN i6 or twin 800-hp Volvo Penta IPS diesel inboards, while quad 600-hp Mercury Verado outboards are also optional.

“The Lancia Aprea 52 presents Italian artisanal artistry along with American collaboration, and will be at the 2024 Fort Lauderdale Boat show,” Sinacola says.

The Lancia Aprea 52 is a stunningly beautiful yacht that is sure to be a head-turner wherever she goes. Comfort and performance are part of her DNA, and her legacy of robust construction is something that rings true the moment you step aboard. If a yacht like this one is up on your radar screen, you owe it to yourself to schedule a walk-through and have the opportunity to take the wheel. You will not be disappointed.
