New Model: Riva 56 Rivale

In a unique ceremony held in Sarnico on 10 June Riva unveiled its new 56 Rivale model.  Direct heir to the 52 Rivale which had a production run which lasted twelve years from 2004 till 2016, the 56 Rivale was code named as Open in project as unveiled in the end of 2016.  Important to note that the new 56 Rivale features a newly designed hull, meaning that this is not an extended 52.  The new 56 Rivale is similar to its replacement in lines and looks with the addition of a large glazed window and a more pronounced central mast radar arch making the noticeable differences.  But the 56 Rivale also sports a big difference existing in the cabin arrangement, offering a two large cabins layout and owners suite at midships versus the three doubles of the 52.  The cabin area also offers a day head to port side, plus a single berth crew cabin to port side with a separate entrance from the main deck.  The Riva 56 Rivale is powered by twin Man engines; standard of 1000hp or optional 1200hp units with speeds going up to 38 knots with the large option.
