New Model: Rio 38 Parana

Rio is a builder to watch in recent times and the 38 Parana designed by Marino Alfani is an important entrance ticket to its renovated range.  Replacement to the good looking 36 Air the Rio 38 Parana with a bit more length brings important novelties to the twelve meter sport cruiser sector.  The 38 Parana does all this by staying in the small boat under ten meter registry.  One of the most interesting details of the 38 Parana is for sure its lower deck layout, available in three double or two large cabin plan choices. In the large two cabin option the two midships cabins are replaced by a spacious full beam owners room with private en-suite head at midships. The 38 Parana also improves the exterior cockpit and now is a full flash deck no step layout with open convivial spaces spaces.  Power for the Rio 38 Parana comes from twin Volvo 300hp engines which give max speeds up to 35 knots.
