The Daytona range inaugurated by Rio Yachts in recent years continues its expansion. After the new
Rio Daytona 45
, here comes the Rio Daytona 35. Evolution of the
Daytona 34
is, in fact, an alternative version of this model and shares the basic features: vessel, open, center console walkaround with four berths. What changes, however, is the deck layout. It is scheduled to debut at the upcoming boat shows: Cannes Yachting Festival and Genoa Boat Show.

See here what the Rio looks like Daytona 34.

Rio Daytona 35

The Daytona 35 was initially created for the American market. It has, in fact, characteristics that are highly appreciated overseas. First, it is a bow rider, that is, it has a second cockpit in the bow with a table that goes up and down: this allows both use as a sundeck and use as a convivial area, such as an aperitif.

A double cockpit on a vessel is not a trivial feature because it amplifies the privacy of those on board, increasing relaxation areas.

Let’s not forget that the aft cockpit is equipped with a retractable table and outdoor kitchen while inside there are (also in this version) four beds and a bathroom with shower like its sister Daytona 34. Above has been fitted with a fiberglass T-top that houses an electric aft awning to increase the area sheltered from the rays.

Rio Daytona 35 – Cabins

Although it is a vessel as we anticipated above, it has four berths, divided into two cabins: one aft with a double bed perpendicular to the hull, the other forward with a parallel double berth. A bathroom with sink and shower is also on board. The basic motorization of this new Rio is two 300-horsepower Mercury outboards with which it reaches a maximum speed of about 39 knots with a cruising speed of 30 knots.
