The Riva 56’ was launched at Boot Dusseldorf in January. The 17-metre inherits the stylistic traits that characterize the latest generation of opens and coupes by Riva. There are large glazed windows running along the hull with flush portholes, metallic colours on the exterior and opulent detailing in stainless steel and wood. In the stern, the Riva 56’ introduces a new design development: as you walk down the swim platform the steps continue under water to reveal additional steps built into the hull. The living space features a generous sundeck in the extreme stern that feels almost suspended over the waves and leads into the lounge on the main deck. The Riva 56’ will be fitted with twin 1000 HP MAN engines or twin 1200 HP MAN engines on request.
Around the same time, the Ferretti brand also launched the Riva 110’, the flagship of their fiberglass fleet. This restyled flybridge comes in at 34 metres with an impressive glass wall and integrated portholes. On deck, a stretched glass roof extends over the length of the entire living area, constructed with panes nestled in a steel frame. In the stern, the furnished open air sundeck houses a cocktail bar and informal dining area, all natural illuminated by a glass skylight in the hardtop roof. The Riva 110 sports twin MTU 16V series 2000 M94 engines, each outputting 2638 mhp. The yacht will reach a cruising speed of 23 knots and a maximum speed of 26 knots.
