Rio Light is a lovely, light, and manoeuvrable cruiser, even though it measures just over 40ft. If you like style, lots of space and manoeuvrability in one package, Rio Light will fit the bill nicely with its raised external position offering superb visibility. The saloon has a second steering position plus wraparound seating while the mid cabin comes with a double bed and en suite. Rio Light comes in two variations as you can see below; both having a family bathroom with toilet and shower, although Rio 1 has a sit-in bath as well plus shore power to help you charge up your gadgets, while Rio 2 has an extra fitted seat in the saloon area. Both have a rear double and twin cabins with twin beds which you can push together to form a double bed.

Rio Light 1 – Fri/Mon | has a sit in bath, Shore Power.

Rio Light 2 – Sat/Tues | has an extra fitted seat in the saloon area.
