Rivolta Yachts adds small-craft division


Rivolta Yachts of Sarasota, Fla., is launching a new small-craft division that will manufacture panga-style boats.

Renzo Rivolta, division chief and corporate vice president, designed the Mojito line to be "sophisticated and practical."

"We never do anything quite like anyone else," company founder Piero Rivolta said in a statement. "With the Mojito line, we've taken a proven performer and added our own twist in both the styling and quality, confirming that function and efficiency are, indeed, compatible with design."

Acknowledging a challenging marine market in a lagging economy, Rivolta said, "We believe there's still a place for high quality at good value."

Mojitos are available from 16 to 22 feet, with 24, 26 and 28 versions soon to be introduced, as well as jet versions.
