RIO YACHTS celebrate the launch of the new “COLORADO 44”. It is an important year for the boatyard from Bergamo, as it celebrates its 55 years of activity: a milestone that brings back memories of 1961, the year of RIO’s foundation, the dawn of boating, when power boats, with Chris Craft and Rolls-Royce engines, were made from mahogany by master wood craftsmen. The WSB team get up close to the 44, to check out the new arrival.
The Ferretti Yachts 850 is an icon of luxury, offering the unique experience of life in a magnificent maxi loft surrounded by the sea, and it’s just the latest extraordinary masterpiece in the history of a brand that goes back almost fifty years and has won the approval of the main international markets. So, it is no surprise that three of the new yachts have already been sold, two in Europe and one in the Americas: proof that it is already an unmitigated success.
The launch of the all new Filippetti F93 arrived to huge anticipation, born from the collaboration between Filippetti Yacht and the yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni.

This is the 3.0 revolution of the Flybridge Collection by Azimut Yachts. In 2013 with its Azimut 80 the Italian boatyard had come up with a complete new vision of the classic flybridge model. Then, in 2014, it applied the same successful style solutions to its Azimut 50 model and today with the brand new Azimut 72 it is taking another step forward by marrying this elegant yet revolutionary style with state‐of‐the‐art construction techniques. The 72 model combines two state‐of‐the‐art construction techniques so the WSB team have decided to take a closer look at this new arrival.
