[dropcap]T[/dropcap]The new flagship took to the sea for the first time at the La Spezia shipyard, fending the waves with its unmistakeable profile. Reminiscent of the unforgettable Anita Ekberg bathing in the waters of Trevi Fountain, Riva 110’ Dolcevita, with its flybridge of unparalleled beauty, entered the sea and posterity all at the same time.
The first unit of the new Riva masterpiece was launched on Thursday 22 March in La Spezia, at the shipyard that manufactures its 76 and 110 foot models.
Riva 110’ Dolcevita is huge from every point of view. Its visual impact takes the breath away as does the incomparable combination of aesthetics and function, state-of-the-art technology and sea-faring experience.
Marked by an ultra-sporting profile and a design embellished by shaped glass windows and chrome inserts, it’s the flagship of the fibreglass fleet. Among the most striking features, there’s the large glass windows on the trim line with integrated portholes and, on deck, the single height glass window that runs the entire length of the living room with the glass framed by a stainless steel structure.
This new Riva model is once again the result of a collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the design studio founded by Mauro Micheli with Sergio Beretta, the Strategic Product Committee chaired by Ing. Piero Ferrari and the Engineering Department of the Ferretti Group.
“For the largest Riva ship we have chosen the name of a time that is still endowed with sparkle and charm. The Dolce Vita as a truly Italian style indication, the happy combination where good construction and the good life come together. Cruising on this amazing 33 metre yacht is an aesthetic and emotional experience akin to the amazement felt by anyone watching the passing of the Rex, the famous cruise ship featured in the film Amarcord, another of Federico Fellini’s masterpieces -according to the Ferretti Group Chief Executive Officer, Avv. Alberto Galassi. This new seaworthy work of art is not just a gift to our brand’s fans, but to all dreamers who can thus rediscover the splendour and thrills of a new Dolce Vita”.
Riva 110’ Dolcevita will make its official début during an exclusive event to take place in Montecarlo in May, the ideal place for the presentation of a yacht that is already legendary.
