A typical Vessel of the Ligurian seafaring culture
The historic origins of Leudo are lost in time. A Sailing Vessel mainly used for transporting of different types of goods in the Mediterranean Sea.
A Traditional Vessel able to operate both on the high sea and close to the beach. Since immemorial time the leudo was able to reach the shore, even with a full cargo in adverse weather conditions and when harbours were unavailable.
The Leudo has the charm of an old-fashioned Vessel. The quintessence of the Italian Navy history and the flourishing maritime trade. Dedicated mainly to the transport of wine, salt, olive oil, in the quadrilateral of Liguria, Toscana, Sardegna, Corsica.
Today there are just 9 existing vessels still navigating in the Mediterranean Sea.
LaZigoela is one of these exemplars.
A Vintage boat with its lateen sail was designed primarily for the transportation of the local wine. And thanks to its experienced and well trained crew, it re-evokes the tradition every day.
