New Model: Riva 33ft Aquariva Gucci

Riva continue to present exclusive limited Aquariva versions, and after the Cento which marked the first hundred build models, and the just launched Marc Newson, the builder from Sarnico adds another unique jewel with the surprise presentation of a Gucci version. Founded by Guccio Gucci in Florence in 1921, Gucci is in the last decades one of the most renowned global made in Italy fashion houses. The Aquariva Gucci is a celebration to the fashion house ninetieth birthday and was desired for this occasion by the company's Creative Director Frida Giannini. The Aquariva Gucci will be a limited production model and represents the original version with some added details which mark the exclusivity signature. The details are paramount to this new version; the fiberglass hull painted in Gucci's unique hue white color, waterproof fabric which covers the seat and sundeck will have the Guccissima print, bed upholstery in Gucci white cotton, Gucci green-red-green web detailing which edges the floating line, unique green crystal windshield, and last is a series of Riva by Gucci accessories. Power for the Riva by Gucci is twin Yanmar 380hp which give a top speed 41 knots and a range of 150 nautical miles on a 36 knots cruise.
