Project: Riva 63 Virtus

Riva announces the project of the 63 Virtus.  This new sport yacht project follows an open boat concept and is the largest open ever built by the renowned Italian brand.  The 63 Virtus uses the water lines of the 63 Vertigo model and follows the concept of the 52 feet Rivale but in a larger size.  Design is again trusted with the long standing collaboration of Micheli's Officina Italian Design, since the eighties designer for Riva.  Inside a large salon area accommodates a full dining table welcomes you to the lower deck.  Here light and dark shades of oak and opaque polished lacquering provides a modern touch to the traditional elegance characteristic of Riva. Its open interior exteriors are perfect for entertaining. The cockpit is covered with a large, electronic hydraulic operated Bimini-top and features two large sundecks, three sofas, fridge, sink and upon request a grill. Power is from twin 1360mhp MAN engines which take the Riva 63' Virtus to top speeds of 40 knots and a cruise of 35 thanks to a hull equipped with tunnel propulsion for ultimate ease and handling for the smoothest ride out on the water.
