Tornado Yachts presents the T-RIB 48, power and luxury for a new generation of boats. Sneak peek specs.
“The wait is over. This is not only the result of the new Tornado era but it is also the starting point for a new generation of boats, powerful, sporty, safe and with maximum comfort.” Daniele Parisi
The Tornado has a glorious past made up of legendary boats, consigned to the history of yachting for their exceptional build quality and incredible performance.
Elements that have brought her to the podium of the most important international competitions.
This is the premise for an event among the most awaited by lovers of luxury boats, an unmissable event that brought together hundreds of enthusiasts to attend the first to the general public of the T-RIB 48.
Futuristic design, comfort and exclusivity enclosed in a water car driven by the power of 880 horsepower.
The T-RIB 48 – A New Generation
The first pure model of the Parisi era is the T-Rib 48. All the advantages of a rib: stability, reliability and tightness, but with the space and comfort of a yacht.
A hull developed on a project by the legendary Tom Fexas, who can count on the static and dynamic function of his special tubulars, guaranteeing surprising qualities of transversal stability and excellent performance.
Thanks to two Volvo Penta with 440 horsepower each, the boat is able to reach a maximum speed of 45 knots and sail in total safety at a cruising speed of 35 knots.
Perfectly in tune with the living work, the part that emerges from the large bulwarks, integrated with the imposing tubulars, as well as protecting the entire living area from the sea, culminates in a special semi-rigid roller that allows you to “lean” on any surface without do or suffer damage.
This new hull has an impressive internal volume, similar to that of a superyacht.
With a beam of 4,5 meters, this translates into a volume never seen before in a rib, such as to be able to obtain two spacious and very habitable full-beam cabins and a toilet.
If the interiors, in terms of space, brightness and view, are the most surprising aspect of the T-Rib, no less interesting is the original layout of the deck which, above all thanks to its asymmetrical design, allows you to walk along the entire hull in full safety.
From the aft platform to the bow lounge, passing through the outdoor living area (consisting of a large sundeck and a comfortable “U” -shaped dinette) and the helm station, located in a central position.
Today Tornado Yachts embarks on a new journey, led by CEO Daniele Parisi, shipwright for three generations and founder of the Cantieri Parisi, chosen by the Sonnino Sorisio family (historical family in the nautical world), who defined Parisi as “the man with the right vision to relaunch the new era of Tornado Yachts ”.
The technological and design innovations introduced by the new CEO trace the new course of this historic brand.
