New Model: Rio 36 Air

Presented for the first time at the recent Naples boat show, is the new Rio 36 Air, hard top version for the Art of the same size presented in Genoa in the fall of 2008. The North Italian builder praises its new 36 feet hard top as the best offer for its size in the European market. As its twin, open sporty 36 Art example, the new Air hard top model follows on the winning design of its sister, offering a much desired full beam owners cabin in only eleven metres. As Rio says both these models share little with the competition apart the size and propulsion, the rest is a surprise to discover. Everything else has no comparison. The look awards the Rio typical visual aspect of a bigger looking sport cruiser then its real size inside and outside. In fact the 36 Air surprises for its sports line, but still offering open livable spaces, an impressive wide cockpit, hydraulic controlled table, chaise lounge, and a dual helm seated helm station with a minimal essential dashboard offering an ample control panel. Best of solutions and thinking for the people onboard comes from the electric shifting hard top which extends up to the stern to protect the dining area if necessary, a very intelligent solution in this size.
