New Model: Rodman 42 Spirit Flybridge

Introduced in 2010 with the 31 Spirit Open, this Rodman range continues to grow and now features three models of which are two versions of the 31 and this new much awaited flagship.  Designed by Fulvio De Simoni as the smaller 31, the Rodman 42 Spirit continues a bit its mix of appeal for modern looks with traditional concepts. See longer fore deck, or the very straight bow, not fully extended flybridge.  Accommodation in the 42 Spirit Flybridge is not far fetched, considering it has Volvo IPS you get only two well spaced cabins, with an owners room to fore, and a galley located below to port side opposite the guest two single berths guest cabin.  The main deck features a C-shaped lounge settee, opposite unit, and helm.  The flybridge is more a sun preacher layout with an aft sunbed, and a medium sized L-shaped settee.  Power is from twin Volvo 300hp engines with IPS pods which Rodman says should give a 30 knots performance, and a 25 of cruise.
