The protagonist is the SportRiva 56’. This model, launched in 2007 and immediately achieving a huge success got the prestigious World Yachts Trophy in the “best design fly” under 80 feet category. The desired “Y” was assigned by a specialized jury selected by the international editorial group LuxMediaGroup. With the SportRiva 56’ Riva set itself a new challenge: to design a yacht with a completely new concept, something never seen before. The result is the SportRiva 56’ sportfly, a yacht which integrates the flybridge concept with the sporty lines of an Open, whilst still maintaining Riva’s inimitable style, designed by the skilful hand of Mauro Micheli together with the team at Officina Italiana Design. A yacht following a “Sporty glamour” philosophy. This model is the first in a new line called SportRiva, whose models will be defined by their length. The SportRiva collection has been studied to satisfy the demands of owners who, while not wishing to renounce to the lines of an Open, prefer the convenience of a closed, air-conditioned upper salon, ideal for countries with a tropical clime. A philosophy and a new concept that are evidently a winning formula! The award was proudly collected by the Riva CEO, Ferruccio Rossi, and the VP Sales&Marketing, Francesco Frediani.
