[dropcap]R[/dropcap]iva continues to write the history of the nautical world, leaving a never-ending wake of emotions. The latest masterpiece is the magnificent new Riva 110’ Dolcevita, which debuted at the Yacht Club de Monaco on the occasion of the Grand Prix Historique last week-end.
Riva 110’ Dolcevita immediately captivates the gaze, which sweeps along of the hull characterised by a combination of aesthetic rigour and sportiness, with a design enhanced by shaped glass windows and chrome inserts. Of particular impact is the expansive hull glazing with integrated portholes and, on the deck, the floor-to-ceiling windows that extend the entire length of the saloon, made of glass panes framed by a steel structure: a true crystal palace on the sea.
This majestic flybridge, over 33.5 metres in length, is the result of a collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the studio founded by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta that exclusively designs the entire Riva fleet, the Ferretti Group’s Strategic Product Committee, chaired by Piero Ferrari, and the Engineering Department.
“Dolcevita’ indicates a period and a style that could only be associated with a yacht of unrivalled beauty, one whose appeal will resonate in the yachting world for decades to come,” commented Alberto Galassi, Ferretti Group CEO. “We chose Monte Carlo for its debut, because this is one of the most ‘Dolcevita’ locations in the world, and the Grand Prix Historique, which is an event where legends meet. ‘Dolcevita’ conjures up a dream world that the Riva 110’, in all its splendour, personifies to perfection. It pays tribute to a wonderfully carefree period of history, brought back to life in a magnificent vessel that is the perfect synthesis of the traditional and the modern.”
From 11th to 13th May, yacht owners and vintage car enthusiasts, fascinated by the impressive combination of four-wheeled legends and the new masterpiece of the sea, had a chance to admire the new flagship of the Riva fleet presented in its world premiere – and already a big commercial success – at the Yacht Club de Monaco, featuring a number of extremely rare and gorgeous specimens of Ferrari Classic and a memorable event inspired by the “Dolce Vita” theme.
