Rio Colorado

Rio Colorado with the hull number 8. There does not exist too much documentation by the Shipyard because a great fire destroyed most of the yard and also their documents. Even thought the history of the boat cannot provided with solid proof since delivery, it can be assumed that Brigitte Bardot was the second owner.
The complete refit process had a duration of four years. All works were mainly done by a professional company specialized in the refit of classic wooden boats. Following the list of the work done in 2006/2010: First the boat was stored in a hall for several months to dry, then it was completely dismantled, hull and keel replaced; frames sanded, repaired and painted; hull sides, deck, interiors and transom sanded and varnished with 22 coats; new chrome plated of the exhaust pipes and manifolds; two new specifically designed propeller sets; new original siren; cabin totally restored; new toilet; new additional electronic GPS/Plotter; VHF; HiFi Surround system; new complete upholstery, inside and outside; new navigation lights; new cabrio cover in white; new rev counters as original; new hutches of the engine; changing and overhauling of the engines; new Velvet gearboxes installed; new Edelbrook carburetors installed; shower with fresh water tank installed; anchor light installed; new small fridge installed; new third battery mounting, to be charged by shore power. Further works in 2017/2019: overhouling of the engines and electric system, new upholstery, new chrome. That Rio is still in a mint condition. Only about 80 hours engines cruising.
