Rodriquez Yachts to Design Vessels in the U.S.

Wednesday, May 10, 2006
Rodriquez Yachts announced an exclusive agreement that will bring Rodriquez's luxury designs to the United States for the first time. According BRB Yachts, Miami's position as a gateway to international business and tourism makes the city an obvious spot for BRB's outreach to yacht enthusiasts. Despite an economy that is showing signs of leveling off, and in the face of rising fuel costs, statistics show that high-end consumers continue to see Miami as a leader in luxury trends. Rodriquez yachts range from 50 to 220 feet, and the models available to American consumers are the 500 Sport, 600 Sport, 600 Widebody, 800 Widebody and 800 Sport, which are customizable to suit the needs of each yachtsman.
