Riva is one of the most legendary names in yachtbuilding and quite for a reason. The Italian shipyard has created some of the most sought after classic speedboats in the world, often synonymous with a refined luxurious way of life. Their newest flagship yacht was launched ahead of its preparation for its summer season debut.
Penned by Sergio Beretta, Ferrati's Product Strategy Committee and Officina Italiana Design; its design certainly embodies its name "Dolcevita" (the sweet life in Italian). The main deck is an ensemble of glass panes surrounding the saloon from bottom top top, extending all the way to the rear of the cockpit. Inside the open plan saloon, Italian elegance is flaunted in the form of a smoky glass embellished into a stainless steel frame hovering above low-laying furniture sitting above a marble floor.
The master suite in the front shares the same natural lighting as the saloon, with a queen-size bed facing the bulkhead giving amazing sights of either sides of the yacht. Below, four staterooms are available for guests. The crew quarters are comprised of a galley, an L-shaped lounge and two staterooms. The flybridge features two lounges; the forward lounge has a dining table and a lounge portside and the second longue features a teak table to starboard. In the rear, the aft was left surprisingly empty with loose furniture scattered around. These removable pieces can easily make space for bigger parties as the boat is rated for 20 guests.
This gigantic yacht is powered by twin 16V 2000 MTU diesel engines with a top speed of 26 knots and a cruising speed of 23 knots. It has a Ferretti patented stern which lowers the swim platform into the water and features a flooding garage; making tender boarding and disembarking easier. Riva has certainly shown off all of its design and engineering marvels in this one and for us it seems a way better investment than a mansion. Why live luxuriously somewhere when you can live luxuriously everywhere in the world?
