Riva 66’ Ribelle: the new high-tech sport flybridge
Born where legend and technology intersect, 66’ Ribelle is the new sport flybridge by #riva, ready to write a new chapter in the history of boating, #design and luxury. The art of sailing gains a new masterpiece with this extraordinary vessel, that combines the allure of a timeless style with the pleasure and comfort of countless innovative on-board features.
66’ Ribelle, the flagship of the Sarnico shipyard, continues the evolutionary path that began with 56’ Rivale: conceived as an entry level model in Riva’s sport fly range, it aims to become the new benchmark in its market segment. Born through a collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the atelier founded and headed by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta, the Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department, 66’ Ribelle sets a new standard of #excellence in combining style with functionality and beauty with technology.
The hull’s streamlined profile – in the exclusive Blue Sapphire colouration, introduced here for the first time – features large glass windows on the hull and on the superstructure.The exterior lines draw inspiration from those of the 76’ Perseo, with the addition of new style elements in mahogany and polished stainless steel (which also serve technical purposes), that pay homage to both the history of the Sarnico shipyard and to the storied #riva tradition. Noteworthy elements include the aft wings,the garage door – fitted with a mahogany band with a stainless steel perimeter, above which is a mahogany and steel lifeline –, and the side lifelines of the superstructure, in mahogany with steel ends.
The stern features an innovative style detail: the platform is connected to the vessel’s sideways, thus forming a single continuous element that rises all the way to the cockpit. Stainless steel fairleads for the main and secondary mooring lines provide a further element of uniqueness in this area.
Like on the 56’ Rivale, the port side cockpit steps become partially submerged when moving the swimming platform, revealing other steps built in to the hull and thus creating a single, extremely practical stairway for boarding and deboarding. The garage can accommodate a Williams 345 tender and a Seabob.
The cockpit features a stern-side sun pad protected by the flybridge and a starboard dinette with a couch and mahogany table; the crew cabin, accessible from the main deck, is located below the sun pad and includes a single bed and a bathroom. The lounge’s glass door with tilting window ensures a perfect continuity between the inner and outer spaces, creating a single seamless deck with no steps or obstacles. The space in the forward area has been exploited to its fullest potential, thanks to a large 7m² sun pad with a built-in backrest that ensures maximum comfort. The sun pad also offers generously-sized lockers.
LAUNCH OF THE #riva 110’ DOLCEVITAA CONTEMPORARY LEGEND
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.
