76’ Perseo wins the “Motor Boat Awards 2017”
The Riva coupé triumphed in the category Custom Yachts during the ceremony held at the London Boat Show.
The Riva 76’ Perseo has won the first nautical award of 2017, confirming the supremacy of style, comfort and technology that has made it one of the biggest hits in Riva’s recent history.
The setting of this triumph is the 2017 edition of “Motor Boat Awards”, organized by IPC Media, the British publisher of some of the most important international nautical magazines. The ceremony took place in London last Monday, 9th of January, during the Gala dinner organized at “The Rosewood Hotel”, in conjunction with the 63th edition of the London Boat Show which will run until the 15th of January, and to which Ferretti Group participates through its exclusive dealer Ventura UK.
The Riva 76’ Perseo, characterized by a unique design and a deep sporting spirit, was awarded the prize in the Custom Yachts category. The Custom Line 108’ was In the same shortlist, reflecting the unanimous appreciation of the Ferretti Group models by the jury and industry professionals. The award has a particular value, as it is allocated on the basis of technical, aesthetic, innovative criteria, and only awarded after thorough performance tests and sea trials carried out by journalists and the publishing house, supported by engineers in shipyards.
“This new victory in Great Britain, as part of an important trade show like the London Boat Show, is a great achievement” - says Stefano de Vivo, Chief Commercial Officer of Ferretti Group.
“This year, we triumphed with a yacht that has received prestigious awards and unanimous success since its debut at the 2015 Cannes Yachting Festival. With this new prize, the 76’ Perseo confirms itself as a true icon in the Riva coupe fleet. For us, then, to receive this award here has even more value because the United Kingdom, as well as a country of great tradition and nautical culture, is a strategic market in which Ferretti Group is proud to represent the Italian design excellence and industry.”

The new coupe stems from the cooperation between Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee, the Group’s Engineering Department, and designer Mauro Micheli, co-founder, together with Sergio Beretta, of Officina Italiana Design, the design firm that exclusively pencils Riva's entire fleet.
It was born in the “family feeling” with the other models in the sporty range. At first glance the yacht reflects sportiness and elegance, thanks to the wise choice of hull and superstructure colors.
The sporty look is further enhanced by the more than 430 square feet of glass surfaces. The large windows in the hull, used on both sides, is composed of two elliptical surfaces, which are connected to each other by the Riva logo, made of a material that has always distinguished the brand: polished stainless steel.
The large sundeck is harmoniously integrated in the aerodynamic lines of the yacht and allows you to relax in privacy, as well as giving the opportunity to steer the yacht from a privileged position.
