RBS Marine are delighted to join Rodman in presenting the new Coupé version of the Rodman SPIRIT 42 model at the London International Boat Show, from 10th to 14th January 2018. This revamped show will run for 5 days in January and will be a fantastic international platform to launch this new model from the Rodman Shipyard.
In 2011, Fulvio de Simoni’s design studio together with Rodman’s technical team first combined their expertise and experience, to create the Rodman Spirit 42 Flybridge, which showcased new design concepts, new features, unique style and personality. Now, Rodman are proud to launch a new coupé version of this model, which is sure to make waves in the vibrant market of the hard top sports cruiser.
The Coupé version offers new materials and features, keeping the personality and style of the Rodman SPIRIT range; fun and unique, combined with performance and practicality. A versatile boat for a wide range of customers, now offering even more choice – the new coupé or the flybridge.
From the outside you can see the SPIRIT stamp of design. Classic, yet modern, tough yet calm. The vertical bow is a typical feature of Atlantic vessels - strong, reliable and safe – and aesthetically it is reminiscent of a more traditional style. The sliding electric roof is the stand out feature of the Coupé, adding to the contemporary and sportive lines of the exterior, and providing natural light and air to the saloon, giving the feeling of outside, inside. The roof itself will also feature two fixed windows, which further amplify the size of the saloon.
The interior of the Rodman Spirit 42 is all about space; space for fun, space for relaxation, space for life. As you approach the boat, from the transom, you cannot help but notice the wide beam, and as you board you feel stable and unconstrained. The boat gives a feeling of minimalism, a place for clear thought and a de-cluttered life, whilst still providing the creature comforts you need to unwind and enjoy your quality time on the water. Throughout the boat interior design has been crafted to compliment the boat’s beamy dimensions and take full advantage of the natural light that comes in from the windows and sliding roof. Neutral colours, comfortable materials, lightwood and modern textures create a space in which you want to spend your time, and create moments that will be memorable.
The saloon features a large L-shaped sofa with a foldable table, opposite cavernous storage units and television. On the Spirit 42, storage is in abundance, which means there is space for everything you need, and a place to put it away, adding to that feeling of clarity you get when spending time onboard. A step up from the saloon brings you to the well positioned helm, with wide double helm seat and ample room for charts and electronic equipment.
Down the companionway steps you will discover the galley to port. Here again, everything has a place, leaving the work-surfaces free for preparation when you are cooking, and clean and clear when you are not.
The forward Owner’s cabin features an easily accessible double island berth, and the twin guest cabin comprises two side by side singles. Combine these with two well-designed bathrooms, with separate showers, and you can be assured your time below deck will be just as comfortable as it is above.
The Coupé model will feature twin VOLVO IPS engines with two different power options: IPS 400 or IPS 500.
Rodman have been a worldwide pioneer in the development and implementation of the IPS system in its crafts. The expertise of the technical team of the Shipyard have been a key elements once again for the successful coupling of the Volvo Penta IPS engines and the Rodman boats. Since its inception, Rodman have fitted this system into 6 out of the 12 current models available and in more than 300 boats.
The building process follows the constantly updated rules of the Rodman Quality System. This includes the execution of their own engineering and design processes resulting in structural strength, security and the best shipbuilding practices based on vast experience, exceeding the highest industry standards.
