We told you some time ago about the new
Neo 570
, but the Italian shipyard based in Puglia is ready to churn out a new design, confirming itself as one of the most innovative and imaginative made-in-Italy sailing shipbuilders. The new boat on the launching pad will be the Neo 430 Roma, a low-displacement performance cruiser built in carbon, designed for sport cruising and even offshore racing. The design once again is by Giovanni Ceccarelli, who has already signed the Neo 400, 400+ and 350 for the Apulian shipyard. For the 430 Roma Ceccarelli conceived a look with open ocean-style deck flares useful among other things to lower the boat’s center of gravity, lighten its displacement, and reduce turbulence on the headsails.



The shipyard wanted to emphasize the concepts of Made in Italy and high-quality Grand Touring. What better name for a yacht that wants to combine performance and style? Combining the desire to live your sailing life at a higher level without sacrificing comfort?

The boat in fact will be customizable in several versions, the Roma Gran Turismo (pictured above) and the Roma Race Performer, depending on the needs of the sailors, so it can be more cruise-oriented or pure performance-oriented in the case of use between buoys or especially in offshore racing.

One of the available interior layouts

In the Grand Touring version there are two rudders and a lifting keel, in the Race Performer a single rudder, and all the weight saved by the less cruising interior finishes will be transferred to a keel that will accommodate 50 percent of the total displacement: low center of gravity, maximum righting and power.
