RIO YACHTS'S NEW MODELS FOR 2017: “Granturismo 58 S” and "SPIDER 40”

2017 will be a year full of novelties for Bergamo’s historic boat yard RIO YACHTS: in spring “Granturismo 58 S” and Spider 40″ will make their world début. With 55 years of experience in the industry, Rio Yachts has produced two yachts that stand out for their aesthetics, seaworthiness and innovative solutions.

Granturismo 58 S

Following the request of a prestigious US client, Granturismo 58, the yard’s flagship, becomes the GT “S”, emphasising its sporty spirit and superior propulsion.

The new flagship boasts the same sporty lines as her predecessor, harmony of proportions and combines functionality (which is typically North American) with sumptuous materials. A pure “Made in Italy”, “Granturismo 58 S” boasts quality, history, culture, style and art.

A tailor-made yacht that reflects the client’s personal taste, personality and uniqueness.

Some figures: 19 metres long, 4.80-meter beam, twin Caterpillar 1,000 HP engines, reaching a maximum speed of 36 knots, with a 30 gross tonnage. The yacht’s hull features large glass surfaces, which fill the interior with abundant natural light, and sports iridescent grey and anthracite colours; the same chosen by the owner for his private jet.

From stern to bow: the very large bathing platform is equipped with a 1.20-metre-reach crane to launch a 4.40-metre tender.  The crew cabin, which is optional, can be accessed from stern and boasts direct access to the engine room. Aft, the yacht is equipped with a huge L-shaped sofa, ideal to sunbathe, a telescopic hydraulic awning and a concealable door that allows to separate the outside form the inside but, when necessary, disappears completely in the roof (a distinctive feature that RIO YACHTS boasts on many of its models). The deckhouse features a spacious dinette and a fully equipped helm station, boasting all the latest comforts and technologies.

The habitable deckhouse features a bimini and Esthec and glass flooring, flooding the interior with natural light.

The yacht’s décor is characterized by the care for the smallest of details.  Antolini stones have been used throughout, for the bathrooms’ floors and walls, the table tops, the galley’s counter, the helm station’s console, the desk top and the surface tops in the owner’s cabin. Additionally, the yacht features dark woods, soft lights, Armani Casa Textiles by Rubelli…

The boat owner spared no expense, especially as far as equipment is concerned. The yacht boasts gyroscopic stabilizer, bow and aft propellers with joystick, 5 electrically controlled concealable televisions, a feature also boasted by the tables, large fridges, ice-maker, Esthec deck, side decks and cockpit, etc. Undoubtedly a fully equipped yacht.

Spider 40

A day boat, a pure open, Mediterranean, exciting, innovative, modern, fascinating and functional vessel, boasting low, breathtaking lines: the “Spider 40” will be all this and much more.

13 meters in length and equipped with twin inboard-outboard D4-300 engines, the “Spider 40” reflects the philosophy that has always characterized the boatyard, producing sporty, excellent, high-end yachts. The name itself is reminiscent of the sporty, fun, two-seat cars, perfect to enjoy the good season and ensure that wind-in-your-hair thrill; the very soul of the “Spider 40”, a true “Made in Italy”.

The ideal buyer of the Spider 40 is a boat-owner who is looking for an easy to use vessel, an owner who doesn’t sleep on board, but mainly stays at homes or hotels, an owner who desires a glamorous, unique vessel to enjoy the sea: a sort of “party boat” to have fun with family and friends.

Boasting sleek lines, the yacht features a spacious cockpit with a six-seat sofa, a large sunpad area and a small exterior galley equipped with fridge and gas hob. Below deck it has been fitted with four beds and a bathroom equipped with all the necessary features for a short cruise.

As always, attention has been paid to the smallest of details, finishings, materials and all requests from the owner can be customised: all in line with Rio Yacht’s philosophy.

A synthesis between excellency and Italian tradition, the “Spider 40” combines the history of a historic boat yard with 55 years of experience in the industry and the glamours, fascinating, Italian style.
