The Riva Destination concept triumphs in the “Retail marketing initiative” category.Taking the legendary Riva magic beyond the nautical, through the Riva Lounges, Privées and Decks: this is the winning idea with which the Ferretti Group secured the prestigious prize awarded by the Boat Builder Awards 2019.Yesterday evening, 19 November, at the event organised by METSTRADE and IBI (International Boating Industry) magazine, the jury awarded the “Retail marketing initiative” prize to the Riva Destination concept, created to offer owners an exclusive experience in unique locations such as the Yacht Club in Montecarlo, the Gritti Palace in Venice, Garage Italia in Milan, the Ikador Luxury Boutique Hotel & Spa in Opatija in Croatia, Nammos Beach in Mykonos in Greece, the Molo 47 Restaurant in Formentera in the Balearics, the Splash Restaurant on the Seine in Paris, and the Riva Lounge in Palm Beach in Florida.The pure class that has always been the hallmark of Riva heritage and design makes each Riva Lounge, Privée and Deck instantly recognisable, and not just to sailing enthusiasts. The classic fifties Dolce Vita style and chrome, steel and varnished mahogany detailing instantly evoke the iconic yachts and glamour of the most famous shipyard in the world. All the custom furniture, such as the Aquariva lamp or the Aquarama chairs and tables, features the classic characteristics of the vessels, making it possible to experience first-hand the materials and wood with which Riva, for 177 years, has been making the yachts chosen and so beloved by stars and celebrities.

Created by Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee in tandem with the Engineering Department, Ferretti Yachts 720 is the second project with the exterior designed by architect Filippo Salvetti in collaboration with Ferretti Group. The interior design, on the other hand, was created by the Group’s own architects and designers. Numerous elements immediately grab attention, starting from the eye-catching aerodynamic design with its sporty and harmonious lines that have become a signature of the Ferretti Yachts fleet.In keeping with the innovation process implemented on recent models, the external forward area stands out for its spacious, interchangeable living areas. The generous 30m² flybridge, in carbon fibre and composite materials, is surmounted by a hard top. The aft swimming platform, a true terrace on the sea with convertible chaise longues and ample storage, can house a tender up to 3.95 metres in length.The interiors of Ferretti Yachts 720 perfectly embody those concepts of well-being and home-like comfort that have become a hallmark of the brand. A large open-plan space is organised into three zones: the living area, the elevated dining area, and the helm station integrated with the Naviop-Simrad LOOP systems and the electro-hydraulic steering system, developed in partnership with XENTA. The lower deck features a 4-cabin layout: the full-beam owner’s suite occupying a generous 20 square metres, two double cabins with separate beds and one VIP cabin.48 WALLYTENDERThe 48 Wallytender setting is what has distinguished Wally since its entry into the world of motor yachting in 2001 with the first Wallytender and the innovative proposal to experience the sea in first person.The 48 Wallytender offers wide spaces on deck, generous interior volumes and special technical solutions to improve the pleasure of cruising, without however affecting those stylistic features, such as the fender that surrounds the entire hull, that distinguish the Wally design, synthesis of form and function. The outdoor spaces are organized in the name of comfort and relaxation: comfortable seats, large sunbathing areas and a dining area served by a fully equipped kitchen. The aft side sections of the boat that can be folded down on both sides are standard equipment, just like the retractable gangway, which turns into a practical ladder for access to the sea. The stern seats can be turned either towards the bow or towards the dining table. The special retractable anchorage system in the forepeak is controlled by a button on the bridge. In the interior, the 48 Wallytender offers a complete suite with large volumes, winning the bet of raising the freeboard without affecting the purity of the lines of the hull. The standard motorization includes two Volvo IPS 650 - 960 hp total, for a maximum speed of 38 knots, and is equipped with a manoeuvring joystick to facilitate the phases of mooring.

The new open cruiser stands out for its original exteriors, its perfect use of on-board spaces and a striking wealth of details in keeping with the Riva traditionThere are yachts that tell a story and others that write a new one: Dolceriva belongs to this second category, if only for the staggering style and design innovations introduced by the historic Sarnico shipyard. The latest, spellbinding creation by Riva is a 48-foot open cruiser conceived to offer unrivalled on-board comfort. The new model strives to redefine its market segment thanks to a number of unprecedented characteristics: a brand-new exterior design developed by Officina Italiana Design, which ushers in a new style philosophy for all Riva models; a perfectly optimised use of on-board spaces; and an exciting wealth of details that pay homage to the incomparable heritage of a brand which has shaped the history of the nautical world for 177 years now.Born from the collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the firm headed by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta that has designed the entire Riva fleet for over 25 years, the Ferretti Group Engineering Department and the Product Strategy Committee, Dolceriva is 14.92 metres (48 ft) long with a full beam of 4.26 metres (14 ft).The originality of the exterior derives from a blend of Riva's trademark elegance with the latest trends in runabout design, such as an automotive-inspired vibe and a sportier interpretation of the idea of luxury. The hull window design stems from a complex research process by Officina Italiana Design: generated by a black pencil mark along the side of the yacht, it deftly ascends towards the deck. This intriguing stylistic solution has led to an original and innovative hull-deck coupling system: the aft area, totally freed from the fender bar, features a carbon-fibre air vent with a steel frame. Making this model even more special are a number of fascinating aesthetic touches, including the stunning windshield made with innovative spherical crystals and featuring a slight counter-curvature: an element destined to become a new Riva signature.The forward surface on the main deck sports the legendary high-gloss mahogany with its twenty coats of varnish, punctuated by a crystal section with a built-in skylight, which allows the cabin below decks to receive plenty of natural sunlight. The exterior part in glossy mahogany features the traditional white maple seams, which are instead absent from the perfectly uniform interiors. At the centre stands the chrome-plated aluminium alloy casing. This magnificent object, with its timeless appeal, completed by a mahogany shaft for hanging the Riva banner, is reminiscent of the fittings found on the models of the past. Throughout the main deck, several other details pay homage to Riva’s vast history and tradition, such as the aft, forward and side lifelines in steel and mahogany, or the mahogany aft wings. Steel also plays a leading role, being used often as a separation between the various elements.Dolceriva is available in all colours of the Riva range: the first unit will feature the striking Regal Silver with bright black inserts.EXTERIOR DESIGNThe rounded stern pays homage to the iconic “Ariston” and “Tritone” models while also evoking the rear of a luxury sports car, transposing this automotive reference onto a fully maritime plane. The hatch, which features a structural bench when closed, swings open to reveal inbuilt mahogany steps as well as a large surface: using the inclination of the stern and the level surface of the beach area, two specially designed ergonomic sun pads can be positioned over the hatch, offering the opportunity to experience the sea in unique fashion. With the hatch open, more steps appear, complete with two storage compartments which can be used to house the seabobs.Beyond the two sun pads, separated by a central walkway, is the cockpit, with two more large sun pads which conceal additional storage compartments, and which lead to the dinette located amidship. Furnished with two large facing sofas and a central folding table in steel and mahogany, this area can comfortably welcome up to 8 people.At the centre of the dinette is an access leading to a belowdeck space, which in standard configuration serves as a spacious 4-sq.m storage area. On request, this space can also be set up as a crew area or as a second guest cabin with a small storage compartment.Beyond this is the helm station, with pilot and co-pilot seats. The bridge features a Garmin Empirbus monitoring system, which combines integrated monitoring and navigation functionalities using touchscreen displays, (on request, it is possible to have one 12-inch screen and one 16-inch screen) and supports the installation of a joystick system. Stylistically, the bridge is enhanced by numerous prestigious details, such as the leather and chromed steel inserts or the carbon lifeline on the left side of the wind screen. To the side and below the co-pilot seat, a cabinet unit set along the bulwark houses a fridge, ice-maker, sink, work surface and bar equipment, as well as practical recycling bins and various storage compartments. The area can be protected thanks to a retractable electro-hydraulic bimini top.INTERIOR DESIGNA steel and glass hatch provides access to a luxurious open space comprised of a dinette with spacious sofa, a kitchen, and a bathroom with separate shower and closet.

The star of the film, in fact, is the Plancia, Carlo Riva’s famous futuristic office that overlooks Lake Iseo.Extending out over the lake like a majestic yacht, the office was designed by Riva himself along with architect Giorgio Barilani, and is considered an authentic architectural masterpiece. Carlo Riva was so fond of the Plancia that after he sold the shipyard, he rented it and continued to use it as his office for almost ten years.The short film highlights the wonders of this magical space and the legendary history of the entire shipyard. The film treatment and direction are by Leopoldo Caggiano, who has already won awards at Cortinametraggio. The film tells the story of the journey of a young filmmaker, played by actor Gabriele Stella, in search of the secret and the essence of the Riva myth. Following an enlightening tour among the yachts under construction and an interview inside the Plancia with an enigmatic Giorgio Marchesi, who plays the shipyard manager, the young filmmaker grasps the enchanting power of the most famous speedboats in the world. The finale, evocative and surprising, is a touch of class that makes the heart race and evokes the poignant strength of the Riva myth.Intense and measured performances were given by all the actors: along with Giorgio Marchesi and Gabriele Stella, also Elettra Mallaby and Claudia Gambino. “The Master Bridge (La Plancia)” was produced by Maddalena Mayneri’s Reef Comunicazione.Two years after the death of Carlo Riva, the greatest creator of yachts of the modern era, to whose memory the film is dedicated, The Master Bridge celebrates the essence of Made in Italy craftsmanship, excellence and attention to detail.Entrepreneurship, master craftsmanship, cutting-edge technologies and innovative design are in fact still the distinguishing features of the brand, enhanced by Ferretti Group and masterfully described in the film.These are the same distinctive elements that over the years have strengthened the bond between Riva and the world of cinema, winning over international actors like Anita Ekberg, who owned a Tritone, or Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, who used a Junior as the tender of their yacht. As well as Brigitte Bardot, photographed beautiful, wild, and free on the French Riviera on her Florida, or Sean Connery, who owned the historic Rudy model, and on to Sofia Loren and George Clooney. These and many other stars have chosen models from the Riva fleet, the symbol of essential elegance and icon of timeless style.

The latest addition to the new flybridge generation has written an exciting chapter in the Riva story with its extremely sizeable spaces, new cockpit layout and double master cabin.In addition to boasting a mythological name, the new Riva 90’ Argo has already secured a legendary status thanks to its innovation and design. It is now preparing to take seas all over the world by storm with its eye-catchingly streamlined and dynamic profile. With a length of 28.49 metres (93’6’’) and a beam of 6.50 metres (21’4’’), the fantastic creation is based on a brand new naval project that combines and enhances the strengths of its two Riva predecessors, the 100’ Corsaro and 110’ Dolcevita.“We chose a name from Greek mythology for the new flybridge in the Riva fleet: the Argo was the first ever ship to sail the seas and the famous Argonauts set out in it on their quest to find the Golden Fleece,” stated Alberto Galassi, Ferretti Group CEO. “The Ancient Greeks were the first to lay down canons of beauty and perfection that are still espoused in creativity and designs today. The 90’ Argo is a flybridge that masterfully combines the spellbinding charm of timeless aesthetics with practicality, stylistic research and technological innovation.”The Riva 90’ Argo stems from the partnership between Officina Italiana Design (the studio founded by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta) and Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee (headed by engineer Piero Ferrari) and Engineering Department.The aerodynamic qualities of the new flybridge’s profile are highlighted by a number of distinctive, striking exterior design features, such as the large hull windows, the long, full-height glazed windows on the main deck and the aft lateral structures with glass surfaces.MAIN DECKIn the stern, the garage can accommodate a Williams Sportjet 395 tender and a jet ski, which can be launched independently: a real boon for a vessel of this size. The 6m² swimming platform is equipped with an innovative retractable ladder: during underwater movement by the swimming platform, the steps on the right become partially submerged and reveal additional steps in the upper part of the stern, providing a single, extremely convenient stairway for getting into the water and back on board. Consequently, there is no need to use the electro-hydraulic steel ladder, although it is still available.The cockpit spans more than 30m² and boasts a new layout that enables it to be used not only for socializing or taking it easy, but also for dining. Protection is provided aft by a fixed steel and glass windscreen. The furniture comes in the shape of two large sofas that are arranged lengthwise and a low central table. The sofas can move towards the table in the middle to form a big sun pad covering approximately 6m². The table can also serve as a dining table for up to eight people. This area was created to enhance the experience at anchor, as there are no architectural features that block direct contact with the maritime surroundings. The flybridge access staircase is recessed in the superstructure, which protects it and conceals it in side views, thus raising the standards of comfort and safety. To cater to the needs of the American market, an alternative cockpit layout has also been developed. It comes with a bar unit, two stools, two sofas and a coffee table by Paola Lenti.On the main deck, a large frame supports the superstructure and runs around the outside of the full-height glass windows. The spacious lounge covering almost 40m² is open to the sea and reaches heights of over 2.1 m. It is furnished with two lounge chairs, an L-shaped sofa and a TV mounted in a panel with a stainless steel perimeter and mirrored surfaces. Beyond it is the dining area, with a large table and seats for eight people. A special touch is added by incorporating a panoramic balcony on each side, near the windows.Just like on large ships, the central area regulates guest and crew flows and separates their paths.On the port side is the entrance to the galley, which also has a dedicated access door on the outer walkway and stairs down to the crew area.Moving starboard, you will find the entrance to the raised helm station, which is equipped with an electro-hydraulic steering system and an integrated LOOP bridge developed in conjunction with NAVIOP-SIMRAD. The latter features a number of 16” or 19” touch screens that encompass all of the on-board monitoring systems and navigation instruments, allowing the captain to run the entire yacht. Beyond this area is the 30 m² full-beam master suite, with a bed in the centre, a walk-in wardrobe behind it and a large bathroom in the foredeck, at a slightly lower level. A central skylight helps to fill the suite with natural light.There is a private lounge in the outdoor forward section that is screened by curtains and furnished with a C-shaped sofa. On request, a retractable table can be added to turn it into an additional dining area or sun pad. There are two large storage lockers for the crew.LOWER DECKThe entrance to the lower deck is on the starboard bulwark of the main deck. It contains a day head and 3 VIP double cabins with en-suite bathrooms and ceilings over 2m high. The 20m² aft cabin is effectively a second full-beam master suite that makes guests feel like real owners. Behind the bed are a walk-in wardrobe and a large bathroom that contribute to the outstanding acoustic insulation, along with the distance from the technical zones and the specially developed soundproofing.The crew area is in the foredeck of the lower deck. It contains a handy dinette and two twin cabins with bunk beds, each with its own bathroom and separate shower.FLYBRIDGE AND INFINITY DECKThe vast flybridge of the new 90’ Argo spans a huge 46m² and it comes with freestanding aft furniture. In the middle on the port side, there is a bar unit with two stools. Opposite is a dining area with an L-shaped sofa, a Corian table with a stainless steel perimeter and some chairs. On the starboard side of the foredeck, there is a retractable monkey bridge with a co-pilot’s sofa on the port side. A glass skylight in the hard top helps to increase the natural light in the area.Like the Riva 110’ Dolcevita, the 90’ Argo has an “infinity deck” with uninterrupted living areas running from the stern to the foredeck, thanks to direct connections between the flybridge, the outdoor area forward and the cockpit.INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR DESIGNThe atmosphere in the first unit is established by the classic stylistic features associated with iconic Riva elegance on both the main deck and the lower deck, with materials such as lacquer, wood, leather and steel on display.The main type of wood used is English walnut, which is the perfect match for the dark tones of the ceiling, the leather furniture coverings and the lighter hues of the parquet, fabrics, sofas and upholstery. A prominent role is also played by mirrored steel surfaces, which appear on the structural columns on the sides of the vessel, a number of items of furniture in the open space on the main deck, the stairway down to the guests’ area and the associated lobby.The interior design scheme in the lounge includes a large titanium-coloured, L-shaped Andersen sofa by Minotti, a coffee table by Acerbis, and two Rivera armchairs by Frag. Cassina black leather chairs surround a glass dining table with a chrome base by Acerbis. The blend of materials and colours on show in the lounge can also be found in the owner’s cabin and the three guest cabins. English walnut takes centre stage, along with black lacquer ceilings with white lacquer sections, and steel structural columns that create a marvellous mirror effect. Complementing all of this are the white leather covering the beds, headboard walls and bedside tables, the black leather and lacquer on the TV stand and desk/dressing table in the owner’s cabin, and the steel units with TV mirrors in the guest cabins. The furnishings are by Casamance, Penelopeoggi, RevéHome and Gentili&Mosconi. In the bathrooms, there is magnificent Calacatta Australe marble on the surfaces of the washbasins, showers and floors.All of the pieces of freestanding furniture on the flybridge are by Roda.PERFORMANCE AND TECHNOLOGYIn its standard configuration, the Riva 90’ comes with twin MTU 12V 2000 M96L engines with a power of 1948 MHP each. This enables it to reach a cruising speed of 22 knots and a maximum speed of 26 knots (preliminary data). Alternatively, two other types of engines are available. The first unit will be fitted with twin MTU 16V 2000 M96 engines generating 2435 MHP each. They will propel it to a cruising speed of 26 knots and a maximum speed of 30 knots (preliminary data). The third option is twin MTU 16V 2000 M84 engines rated at 2218 MHP, allowing the flybridge to cruise at 24 knots and attain a maximum speed of 28 knots (preliminary data). The vessel boasts two stabilizing fins and it is also possible to install Seakeeper anti-roll gyroscopes, as found on the first unit.One particularly innovative feature is Twin Disc’s E-Steer solution with Dual Bus and Speed Sensing technology: the electronic steering system uses reliable hydraulic power to control the rudders dynamically and independently. They are moved into the ideal angles at all speeds, thus maintaining speed during turns and improving handling.
