The new entry-level Riva from the Ferretti Group has all the Italian glamour, style, and elegance that is associated with the brand. This new Riva has a fiberglass hull with mahogany decks, which gleam through 20 coats of varnish (10 sprayed, 10 brushed). The lines are soft and flowing; the workmanship is exquisite, and stopped our panel dead in their tracks. A single Yanmar drives this new beauty with the iconic name to a top speed of 41 knots.
The idea of combining volume and performance is about as old as boatbuilding itself. But sometimes the execution just brings the mix to a precise level that will stop you in your tracks. Check out the 26-knot Sunseeker 95, and see how she came about.
