Wind of Fortune

Rio Frio is a luxurious, spacious and proven seaworthy CRN Superyacht built originally for the Emir of Bahrain. Step aboard Rio Frio and experience the royal thrill of her elegant interior. There are several formal and informal entertaining and living areas including a private dining room that seats 14.

She has a casual lounge and bar that overlooks the aft deck, mid- deck there is a Gym with a hydrotherapy tub, a spa and massage area, including an office and a wonderful sky lounge. The sundeck boasts a Jacuzzi and alfresco dining. Rio Frio has full amenities of toys, including 2 Jet Ski’s, 2 tenders, water sports and snorkeling equipment.

Rio Frio can accommodate comfortably up to 14 guests in seven en suite state rooms, including a master suite of truly grand proportions, an exquisite V.I.P. suite, and five additional twin cabins. Additionally, there is the aft cockpit for easy access to water where one descends in the water through stairways, not via a ladder.

Continuously maintained under Lloyd’s A1 class, she is a prime example of how Italian builder CRN develops a unique work of art with each project.  She has had major refits in 1998, 2010 and 2016.

Below on the accommodation deck starting all the way aft is the queen size, sound insulated full width V.I.P  stateroom with full bath ( an  enclosed shower  and marble tub) and two  twin berth staterooms each with full bath. Located forward are the master full width king size stateroom with his and her full baths and three double staterooms, one having both a tub and a shower.

On the bridge deck is the pilot house with a sitting area to experience how a captain works and maneuvers the yacht. Moving aft from the pilot house on the starboard side is the hydrotherapy exercise room and the Owner’s private office and an impressive full width sky lounge equipped with a portable TV and a PlayStation 4 with a variety of games for a relaxing night.

On the sun deck all the way aft there is a  L shaped  lounge, storage for small boats, a sunbathing area and a Jacuzzi all the way forward to relax while cruising and plenty of room  for alfresco dining amidships.


Luxury, luxury, luxury are the key words for this suite. Huge king size bed, a comfortable sitting area, two complete bathrooms including TV/DVD set.


The aft bull beam V.I.P stateroom has a queen size bed, complete with a bath and an Italian    marble tub with separate enclosed shower and sound insulation. 


The five additional guest staterooms all have sumptuous twin beds including enclosed showers. One of these also has a full size tub in addition to the enclosed shower. Due to the size of Rio Frio, these cabins are unusually spacious and livable over a long period  of time.


Note the several conversation areas available in this room plus the antique player piano for group participation enjoyment. The freshwater aquarium offers beauty and calmness worthy of a contemplative thought. Whether serving a buffet dinner for 40 or a family reunion this salon serves well.


Comfortably seats 14 with full silver services to match. The dining salon also has a superb traffic flow for serving large buffet dinners. Mild totally adjustable lighting for any mood desired during dinner time. There is also a TV and also huge windows which permit one to enjoy their daytime meals and outside views at the same time.


Fully stocked and always tended aft deck lounge and round table bar for relaxed enjoyment any time, day or night. Equally enjoyable after a round of golf, snorkeling, jet skiing or having just completed a good book.


The sun deck offers three separate areas of entertainment. There is the heated Jacuzzi, its seating area, and built in heavily upholstered lay down lounging chaises all the way aft to enjoy the sun to the fullest.


The sky lounge is an intimate room in subtle tones that almost relaxes one immediately upon entering it. The entire aft end of the room looks out over sea. The over head subtly reflects a starlit evening complete with small meteor’s falling in the sky. The seating is deep, luxurious, leather bound and the TV stays out of sight or rises up with a PlayStation 4 upon demand for added entertainment.


Incorporated with the best exercise equipment, the gym even has a mirrored wall with bars for stretching workouts. Immediately adjacent is the hydrotherapy room, where one can ease the stain on any overworked muscle in circulating warm water.


The Owner’s office is equipped to handle any person who wants to have international private conversations. This is a totally private enclave for doing business, keeping in touch with the world, or just a secure room to be  quietly  at  ease .


On board there is a portable massage table that can be set up either in a private interior room or in the warmth of the sundeck surrounded with breathtaking views for pure escapism. They go perfectly together to help you relax and recharge.
