Rivolta Yachts, parent company of Mojito Boats and XO Marine, released the following announcement today (photo's to follow as soon as the boat gets back from New Orleans) . . .

XO Marine Launches New Patrol Boat

XO Marine today announced the introduction of the company’s new XO-S series of patrol, rescue, firefighting and special duty vessels. Using a modular design platform and a hull inspired by panga boats used by coastal and offshore fisherman worldwide, the new vessel provides excellent handling, comfort and operational economy. The vessel is being introduced to prospective commercial and government customers at WorkBoats International in New Orleans, LA this week.

The XO-S series boats are fully modular, and are offered in several deck/command configurations including tandem pilothouse and open center console, with or without an integrated air/foam fendering system. Standard power on the S22-P (pilothouse) is a 300 HP Suzuki Four Stroke capable of cruising at over 50 MPH. Equipped with standard aluminum fuel tanks, the vessel has an average cruising range of more than 400 miles.

“The innovative XO hull configuration uses the basic concepts of the venerable panga design, with several key improvements,” said Jeff Birnbach, Director of Sales and Marketing for XO Marine. “The vessel beam is increased, the gunnel cap widened and the free board height extended. Traditional high bow and sharp entry are retained. The result is an efficient boat, capable of operating in less then 18” of water and still capable of handling very adverse coastal conditions.”

The XO-S Series of boats was developed to give local, state and federal agencies, along with commercial organizations, a cost effective solution for applications that require a rugged, highly maneuverable vessel. “We recognize that funding is a challenge for many agencies,” Birnbach noted. “Our fully modular platform allows us to use standardized hull/deck, mechanical, electrical, fuel and propulsion systems, resulting in considerable cost savings.”

XO hulls are FRP (fiberglass) and can be coupled with either a FRP center console, aluminum pilothouse or carbon fiber pilothouse. The vessels have full upright flotation and incorporate a one piece FRP deck and liner system. XO Marine also has developed 30’, 40’ and 45’ vessels for government and commercial applications.

XO Marine, based in Sarasota, FL is a division of Rivolta Yachts, LLC, a semi-custom builder of power and sail vessels to 90’. The company expects to deliver its first new XO-S series boats in the first quarter of 2011.

Not just a recreational boat painted gray, this is built for the severe use encountered in law enforcement, patrol and rescue operations. 300 HP Suzuki pushes 50+ MPH in light to moderate chop. Shock mitigating seats. Aluminum pilothouse can be fabricated in virtually any configuration. XO Marine is the commercial group with Rivolta Yachts that has developed vessels for LEO/MIL, rescue, fire and other special duty applications.

Our sister company XO Marine posted a video of the 22' LEO/Mil patrol boat on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzmvKsXKgY0 This boat uses the same hull shape of the 22' Mojito but has a greatly reinforced structure for extreme duty applications. For example, the transom is 4" thick Coosa high density board. With 100 gallons of fuel, a crew of two and a generous assortment of weapons and equipment, the vessel runs well in excess of 50 knots.
