Italian “Lobsters” Return Home
Tuscany-based Austin Parker was among the first Italian shipyards to build a so-called “lobster boat,” a range of classical, elegant midsize boats based on the traditional Maine fishing boats, with high bow, sturdy hull and straightforward layout and accommodations. Recently, Austin Parker worked with renowned designer Fulvio De Simoni to develop a seductive new range that includes seven models 42 feet to 72 feet in length.
