Beautiful design and a charisma capable of attracting not only those looking for the performance of a sports motorboat, but also a cabin boat that can offer elegant atmospheres and lots of practicality on board: this is the Rio Daytona 45 in a nutshell.
The new open cabin cruiser of 13.70 meters by Rio Yachts will debut as news 2024 at the first show that traditionally opens the new nautical season, i.e. the Cannes Yachting Festival, from 12 to 17 September 2023 (where it will probably also be possible to try it), to then continue its presentation tour at the Genoa International Boat Show, underway from 21 to 26 September 2023.
Designed as always by the talented Marino Alfanithe Daytona 45 is at the center of Rio Yachts’ range of open cabin cruisers (aka express cruisers at the time), exactly halfway between the Daytona 34 (10.50 meters overall) and the Daytona 50, the flagship of 14.90 metres.

The more observant may still have in mind the Daytona 46 presented last year (later to become Daytona L) and perhaps fall into the misunderstanding of the restyling: no, the Daytona 45 is an all new boat. It is the 46 which, being closest to the 50-foot range with its 14.90 metres, has been renamed the Daytona 50, continuing to be the flagship of the Rio Yachts open range.
For its size, for the quality of the project, but also for the possibility of equipping it with outboard or sterndrive enginesthe Daytona 45 is therefore the natural evolution for those who already own a cabin cruiser and want to evolve towards a more important cruising boat without making excessive leaps in budget and management commitments, but of course it’s also perfect as first boat for those approaching boating with the idea of a lean, fast express cruiser and in any case capable of expressing a state of refinement.
Rio Daytona 45, a modular, customizable and extendable main deck
The bridge deck of the Rio Daytona 45 shows the customary walkaround configuration of the Rio Yachts open, with a well protected walkway along the entire perimeter from the raised walls.
At the bow the sundress it is complemented by an extension of the padding beyond the base of the windshield, to be able to use it both as a headrest and as a chaise longue type backrestwhile at his feet is set a forward-facing sofa always very enjoyable when at anchor and when sailing in calm seas.
But it is aft that this 13.70-metre open expresses all of its versatilityto offer spaces that are always comfortable in the different conditions of use.
In fact, the architecture of the cockpit envisages a transversal dinette aft and two L-shaped sofas placed forward in the area under the hardtop, which they can be moved to integrate into the dinette and thus create a huge dining area or in any case a large outdoor relaxation area.
All completed by a sundress (with under the garage for the tender) directly overlooking the sea aft and with the possibility of placing it in direct contact with the outside even on both sides, thanks to the now inevitable collapsible walls.
Furthermore, in its open nature, the Daytona 45 also offers a covered kitchenlocated to starboard of the command console, despite the fact that another can be provided below deck.
Two cabins in elegant settings for the Rio Daytona 45
The studio created the interiors this time And Design which, judging by the first glance, gave rise to classroom environments with the woods in a soft shade of brown, not too dark but not too light either.
Furthermore, the linear lights with indirect diffusion always give that extra touch of refinement to the internal atmospheres, as well as of course the ability to enhance the brightness of the rooms.
There are two cabins below deck on the Rio Daytona 45: the aft one has a closing door and is made up of two separate beds arranged across the beam with the headboard to starboard, plus a vestibule set up along the starboard side, where there is also the greater height of the ceiling to be able to stand .
In the forward area, where theownerinstead there is not a closed cabin, but a open space with double bed at the bow and then all a free space that makes the environment more airy, but where in any case there is no lack of space for locale toilette on the left and a service unit on the starboard side which, if desired, can also be equipped with a galley.
Choice of engines for performance that is always respectable for those who love speed
The new Rio Daytona 45 can be powered by two 370 HP Yanmar 8LV sterndriveswhich will be the debut version of the boat, or with two 400 hp Mercury Verado outboardswhich are the new V10s just launched by the American company.
In the first case the yard has calculated a maximum speed of 38 knotswhile with the two outboards the boat can go up to ben 42 noted. The fast cruising speedhowever, can be attested to 32 knots in both solutions.
When we have the opportunity to test the Rio Daytona 45, we will be able to give you a wider range of cruising speeds in terms of convenience, from the cheapest to the fastest.
