These are New Wooden Boats. Not all wooden boats are old. This sections features newly manufactured boats from Hacker-Craft of Silver Bay, NY and Comitti boats from lake Como Italy.
These boats both use thoroughly modern construction techniques using marine ply woods and epoxy in their construction. This make for very strong and stable hulls that don’t have the inherent movement problems found in traditional hulls. While any varnished boat will require periodic re-coating, the lack of seam movement greatly reduces maintenance.
Also modern are the bottom shape , which feature soft riding, deep vee designs. Powerful engines make them perform as well as any fiberglass boat.

2005 Comitti 25ft Portofino
In business since 1956, Comitti is a small company in northern Italy nestled in the foothills beside the beautiful waters of Lake Como. It is the sole remaining Italian shipyard with a modern production facility and a growing business building wooden runabouts. The Italian tradition of fine craftsmanship and classically modern design is evident in each boat.
Thanks to the finest materials and traditional construction methods, Comitti runabouts are produced for connoisseurs and represent the pinnacle of Italian boat-building tradition.
Founded by Mario Comitti, the company was later managed by Mario’s son Elia, until 2003 when a new management took over the ownership of the yard. In the last 15 years it has introduced several new models. Today, Comitti builds semi-custom 100% wood construction runabouts in two lengths – SANREMO 22’ and PORTOFINO 25’ – plus the VENEZIA wood-fiberglass composite runabouts of 22, 25, 28, 31 and 34 feet.

This boat has been re-spayed with new finish since new.
With a style that is typical of Italian boats, the Portofino has a comfortable stern lounge for sunbathing. A built-in stern platform with ladder is ideal for swimming and watersports.

Currently building six models from 6.5 to 10.5 meters in length with gasoline or diesel power from Mercruiser and Volvo, Comitti carefully manages its production volume to build the highest quality artisan-crafted speedboats in Italy. With designs inspired by the timeless style of La Dolce Vita, “the sweet life“, Comitti uses state of the art composite and wood boat building methods to produce a strong, lightweight, stunningly beautiful vessel that will last a lifetime with minimal annual maintenance.
(History) In 1956, Mario Comitti began building high-speed motorboats on Lake Como. His boats were at the forefront of experimental design and expressed the Italian passion for speed. Mario Comitti son, Elia, raced the boats and built their reputation as he won race after race. Racing designs evolved and gained elegance along the way. Design of the hull running surface, which had begun relatively flat, was the focus of much development. A new Comitti “V” shape evolved, which resulted in better rough water handling while providing an ideal wake for water skiing. Signature down angle lift strakes on the running surface increase speed, improve handling and provide a dry ride.
