Web: Rizzardi New Web Site

Rizzardi presents its new web site.  Founded by Gianfranco Rizzardi in 1974 it started first as a boat support service structure in the central and Southern Tyrennian sea.  Still keeping its important service structures, Rizzardi eventually moved into construction in 1978 launching its first model the Rizzardi 40 in that year, with a range that expanded to include the 50 and 45 CR in both open Day and Fly flybridge models by the end of the eighties.  In 1993 Rizzardi was the first to start making group in Italy when the company took over the then financially stuck Posillipo.  A legendary brand in its own, Posillipo was founded in 1943 by three friends; De Salvi, Curatolo, and Casa. In its glorious and successful story, Posillipo will first create legendary wooden sport boat runabouts and motor cruisers and yacht, and then make the move to fiberglass with the inspirational 42 Martinica and 47 Tobago models.  Posillipo makes a huge step into the future when in 1978 it enlists emerging designer Giovanni Zuccon, who designs the Technema models starting in 1978 with the 65, and ending with a project 63, then 65 model in 2001.  Galeazzi will design the new generation Possilipo from 2004, starting with the 95, and going into the 75, 90 and 120 models.  Interesting note that in the seventies and eighties Posillipo was regarded as the main Riva competitor with the Martinica and Tobago models being the competition to the SuperAmerica series.  Also to note that the Rizzardi and Posillipo connection did exist before the yard became one in 1993, as even the hull shapes of the first Rizzardi models evolved from previous Posillipo models most notably the famous Martinica and Tobago models.  Rizzardi currently features two brands; Posillipo and Rizzardi open; with the new web site currently focusing on two models from the Rizzardi line the 48 IN, and the new InSix.  Rizzardi new web site takes you around with the following buttons; InSix, 48 In, Made in Italy, Tradition, Custom Made, and Quality.
