Rodman 1090 Evolution: Rugged cruiser gets a contemporary edge

Rodman is renewing its focus on its leisure boat range and the first new model to land in the UK is the Rodman 1090 Evolution.

It’s based on the well-proven hull of the 1040 but the superstructure is entirely new and it boasts smarter lines and much more glass in the topsides.

The 1090 Evolution has that characteristic purposeful Rodman stance but this model is clearly in possession of a more contemporary edge.

On board, triple sliding doors link the cockpit and saloon, with a full-size side door at the helm creating another pathway out on to deck.

Below there is a double master cabin forward with L-shaped bunks in a guest cabin to port and a heads opposite.

Twin 270hp or 300hp diesels on shafts should make for a decent turn of pace and planted seakeeping.
