Project: Rio 38 Parana

Rio presents an  interesting sport cruiser project the 38 Parana, with the Italian boat builder continuing its recent trend of picking model names from its archives. Judging by the beam the 38 Parana is based on the hull of the 36 Art and Air models. None the less the super structure and lines as appear on the renderings so far present seem to give the 38 Parana more sweeping sports lines and total different looks. Equaling to a totally new model. The 38 Parana is offered with two options for the lower deck, a feature which sets its apart from most mainstream competition in this size. The choice here is two cabins; VIP to fore, and a full beam owners room amidships with own en-suite shower head, or a three cabin version and a smaller L-shaped dinette and saloon. Standard power is twin Volvo 300hp with stern drives propulsion.
