Project: Rio 34 Espera

Rio presents the project of the 34 Espera.  This medium sized sport cruiser innovates in its style joining sleek lines with solution as found on a walk around boat.  Those who know the Rio brand might say that the North Italian company has already the Blu line which offers such a similar concept, but the 34 Espera does move into a more sportier aggressive category.  The 34 Espera will offer a four berth accommodation below which comes from a convertible V-berth sofa to fore, and a separate double bed mid ship cabin.  A more to the usual spacious for this size shower head will be located to starboard.  The cockpit which is the main living area of the 34 Espera uses all the beam of the boat with an L-shaped settee located to aft, central helm console, and a galley.  Other options like a more open sport fish layout will also be available, as the choice of a central hard top above the console. Power comes from a standard twin Mercruiser 305hp petrol gas engines, to optional Volkswagen 265hp diesel in a stern drive propulsion.  A twin outboard version named 34 Espera TA and powered by twin Mercury Verado's should also be available.
