Aprea 1890


Since 1890 the name of the Aprea family is famous worldwide for the quality of its boats, made with wisdom and precious materials.
Today, the Aprea brothers still work according to the family tradition, handed down from their father Franco and their uncles, before that from their grandfather Cataldo and his brothers, before that from their great-grandfather Giovanni and finally, more than a century ago, from their great- great grandfather Cataldo, the family’s first master carpenter, the one who set out the guidelines for the creation of a symbol of craftsmanship and charm. From the Grande Marina, the fame of the Fratelli Aprea shipyards has reached an international level.


Starting today the offer made by Fratelli Aprea is enriched with a new proposal. By choosing a route for an excursion or a cruise you can enjoy the comfort and convenience of a luxurious and well- known boat such as the gozzo, in complete safety and serenity, exploring an enchanting region such as the Amalfi and Sorrento Coasts.

Art of building

A company founded by a family who still works in the sign of tradition and quality, constantly looking to update and improve its creations. An art born in Sorrento and jealously handed down from generation to generation. A deep and unbreakable link that binds the Aprea brothers to the sea and to this land. Still today, gozzo boats are built according to artisan methods and with the same passion as yesterday, albeit innovative in terms of adopted lines and elegant design. The final result is an increasingly exclusive product.

Our hand slides over the smooth and motionless skeleton of a gozzo to be built, the symbol of our family of master carpenters who have managed to keep the tradition of the true Gozzo Sorrentino unchanged through the years.
A passion that stands the test of time, kept alive by people who live the sea with emotions and by rediscovering the living tradition.
