New Model: Riva 14.92 mt Dolceriva

The Riva Dolceriva was the surprise novelty at this years 2019 Cannes boat show by the Ferretti Group.  This is day slash sport cruiser re-invented, with a unique sophisticated design born from the since early nineties Riva designers Officina Italiana Design, the studio of Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta.  That is over 25 years, of designing Riva, and Micheli and Berretta really have the pulse what the legendary brand and its unique sophistication mean.  The Dolceriva measures over fourteen meters and this is an open sport cruiser conceived to all intents and purposes to live life on board outside and inside in an absolute comfort, which aims to challenge the market with some unprecedented strengths. The exterior is spacious and an opening bathing platform doubles the beach area aft, while as center stage we have two sun-pads, an L-shaped dinette to port side, with a sofa and wet bar opposite, while forward we have a helm station and a companionway settee to port side.  Below is a lot of space for a single cabin forward with an L-shaped relaxing dinette and galley opposite. For the Dolceriva Micheli developed a new exterior pattern with a dividing space in between the shear line joining the hull window with the windscreen.  According to Ferretti Group we will see more of this in future Riva's and I really hope so as the design is actually unique giving a lot of equilibrium.  The Riva Dolveriva is powered by twin Volvo 800hp engines as standard with optional 1000hp units, and V-drive shaft line propulsion.
