Miami, Fla., February 11, 2010 - Rinalli Boats today unveiled
its all-new 2100 model. Built on the renowned Duo-Delta Conic Step Hull
platform, the 21-foot center console bay boat features abundant storage
and a host of angler-friendly accessories. Sleek, elegantly appointed,
and fuel-efficient, the Rinalli 2100 reaches top speeds in excess of 57
miles per hour, while cruising at 27 mph and consuming an astonishingly
low 4.5 gallons per hour.
The Rinalli 2100's patented Duo-Delta Conic Step Hull is divided into two sections for optimal planing acceleration and efficiency at cruise. The fore hull features a keel-to-chine conical entry with a wide, delta-shaped planing area, as well as lipped chines and lifting strakes for smooth acceleration and faster planing speeds. A precisely positioned step separates the forward entry section and the aft running section, which consists of a delta-shaped constant planing area. As the hull reaches planing speed, air is introduced under the hull to relieve the suction load. The forward and aft hulls plane at optimum angles, while the aft section "surfs" on the bow wave at higher speeds. This eliminates the need for trim tabs to achieve optimal trim at various speeds, allowing the Duo-Delta Conic Step Hull to achieve greater stability, a smoother ride at faster speeds, and enhanced efficiency due to reduced drag.
The space between the hull and deck is filled with closed-cell foam for maximum insulation and floatation, making the hand-built 2100's hull virtually unsinkable. Additionally, all deck lids are fully gel-coated and built of solid, two-piece molded fiberglass. Rinalli's remarkable construction also offers the peace-of-mind of a limited lifetime hull warranty.

Built for style, speed, and efficiency, the Rinalli 2100 is the ultimate angler's dream. At an overall length of 21 feet with an 8-foot, 5-inch beam, the 2100's 70-gallon fuel capacity gives it an effective cruising range of more than 350 miles at an optimal cruising speed of 27 mph. Storage also abounds, with two 14-gallon live wells located aft, and a 20-gallon aerated live well and 25-gallon storage locker located at the foredeck. The 2100's anchor locker is also prewired for a 12/24-volt trolling motor.
Founded by industry veterans Bryan Harris, Pearl Hamilton, and Kevin Ryan, Rinalli Boats is currently headquartered in Edgewater, Florida. In 2009, fiberglass expert Tim Foster joined the Rinalli team as partner and financial backer, providing long-term financial stability and excellent growth prospects. Foster's company, Petrofuse, specializes in the manufacture of fiberglass replacement storage tanks for fuel stations nationwide. Petrofuse's unique knowledge of fiberglass manufacturing and the gel coat process make the partnership with Rinalli a perfect pairing. "Our tank replacement business is highly seasonal," said Foster. "Having an additional outlet for our new Florida manufacturing facility seemed a natural fit, and the Rinalli platform is second-to-none in both fit-and-finish and performance."
