Comments by George Sass, Jr. in an article from New Boats.com on 4/24/2010: 

"The Rivolta family's origins are in Italy, where the company founder Renzo Rivolta was a post war leader in transportation and real estate development. Also known for its motorcycles, small automobiles and stylish sports cars, the company's passion for style and innovation inevitably led to yacht design. In the 1980's Rivolta's real estate ventures brought the company to Sarasota Florida, where they now build a line of luxury sailing and power yachts. The new Revolta 4.5 combines Rivolta's signature styling and high technology and American craftsmanship.

It's an impressive combination. I first saw the 4.5 at the US Powerboat Show in Annapolis Maryland. It stopped me in my Top-Sider tracks, partially because I'm a fan of Down-east lobster yachts and partially because of my affinity for expensive Italian sports cars (albeit on a Fiat budget). This is a lobster yacht with European style. The fine looks begin in the cockpit with its teak decking and twin cushioned settees. The transom features a pair of swinging doors that open to the swim platform, so it's easy to make a graceful entrance from the dock or the dingy. Sliding stainless-steel framed glass doors with a very solid, substantial feel open to the main salon and helm area.

Simple elegance is the best way to describe the overall feeling of the Rivolta 4.5's interior. Traditional teak and holly are used fro the cabin sole, and beautifully crafted teak joiner work enhances this traditional yet modern space. In the standard layout, a small efficient galley features a two burner electric cooktop and a stainless-steel refrigerator freezer that is a welcome alternative to the plastic "RV" models found on too many yachts. There is a matching stainless-steel microwave too. Across from the galley is an L-shaped settee and a very functional dining table. There is plenty of natural light and ventilation in this space thanks to the glass aft bulkhead, four overhead hatches and large side windows.

To starboard is the helm station with a built in seat for two. The helm has ample space for electronics, engine instruments and controls. A handsome wood and stainless wheel adds a touch of class. Visibility forward is impressive, as is the view aft, thanks to the glass bulkhead.

The accommodations area is a few steps down; there are two staterooms, a full head and shower stall and a cosy sitting area with a small settee and table. A master stateroom has an island berth along with two hanging lockers, ceiling hatches and opening ports. the midships cabin has an athwartship double berth, which is fine for kids or occasional guests.

The test boat was equipped with twin Cummins 480 HP QSB diesels powering Ultra Jet 305 propulsion systems. That's a lot of horsepower for a 41' planing hill that displaces less than 23,000 pounds, yet I found the ride to be quiet and smooth. Top speed was 37 knots, which is just as advertised. At 25 knots, the 4.5 burned just over 25 gph total. At that speed, the sound level at the helm was a respectable 77 decibels.

With a modest deadrise of 14 degrees, the Rivolta got up on a plane quickly. Turning the helm hard over at 25 knots, it behaved beautifully with a predictable inward lean. The acceleration and handling brought that same sense of controlled power one gets when behind the wheel of a perfectly set up rear engine sports car. This is a boat for drivers, not dockside party goers. One reason this boat is fun to drive is its multi function joy stick control. At speed, run the boat with the electronic throttles and hydraulically controlled steering wheel. But for tight, slow-speed maneuvering, take command with the joy stick, which controls the jets as well as the bow thruster. It's an absolute blast. Once you get used to how quickly the boat reacts to the stick, you'll be confident in any docking situation.

The hull is built as a single piece, using the vacuum bag process to eliminate potential voids and air entrapment. The result is an exceptionally strong structure, with foam-cored bulkheads and stringers. Rivolta also uses carbon fiber/Kevlar hybrid laminate in the stringers for extra strength and stiffness."
