With yards in Vigo, Santo Antonia, and Moana, Spain, Rodman Polyships has been building commercial ships since 1974 and has delivered more than 10,000 vessels, many for military and commercial applications.
You can see the emphasis on strength in the Rodman hull, which is solid FRP below the waterline and balsa-cored above it and has six full-length longitudinal stringers. For strength and rigidity, she also has transverse frames every five feet that are tabbed to the hull, from the deck joint all the way through to the bilge, and balsa-cored decks that are laminated to the hull.
Rodman's military and commercial roots are particularly evident in the engine room, where wiring is fully encased, exhaust blowers are safely secured in squirrel cages, diamond plates cover the shafts, exhausts are supported from the top as well as the bottom to cut down on vibration, and a pair of optional three-inch auxiliary engine-driven bilge pumps that could dump some serious water overboard in an emergency.
The interior accommodations are comfortable and well-thought-out. All three staterooms—the master forepeak, the twin guest to starboard, and the VIP to port are tastefully decorated and nicely finished in cherrywood.
There is plenty of stowage in each stateroom. The master has drawer space below the berth, a pair of night tables with shelves, and a pair of hanging and stowage lockers. The guest quarters has a drawer below each berth, a night table cabinet, and a large hanging closet and stowage locker. The VIP has the same arrangement.
The galley is nicely equipped with a Bosch refrigerator/freezer, L-shape Corian countertop, a pair of stainless steel sinks, a four-burner Bosch electric stovetop, space for a dishwasher, a Samsung microwave built into the aft bulkhead, and enough drawer and cabinet space to stow plenty of ships stores for your onboard meals. There’s more stowage in the standard teak and holly sole, accessed by a hatch.
The saloon provides more creature comforts and equipment. There’s a couch to either side of the room and an entertainment center located aft and to port complete with a flat-screen TV, DVD player, and stereo. A pull-out bar lies just forward of the port-side couch, and just forward of that, a stainless steel and wood ladder leads to the bridge deck. Furniture and trimmings are all of cherrywood.
Firenze has been updated with a full range of fishing equipment including rod holders and bait tank.
