New Model: Rio 46 Air

Rio presented the hardtop version of there 46 named Air in the Genoa boat show last October. A hard top sport cruiser based on the lines of the 46 Art presented in Naples Posillipo bay in Spring of last year, this also being a further refinement of the 44 model. This new 46 Air follows what we have seen on the Art with the use of Volvo IPS pod propulsion in lieu to traditional shafts, bigger full beam owners cabin with large view windows, and lastly a high low bathing platform adding an extra space for a water toy along the all ready existing garage space. Performance should be along similar numbers of what the open Art version with twin IPS600 engines at 435hp each reached, having a wide open throttle top speed of 38 knots, and a comfortable cruise at 30 knots.
