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.
Boats that bring efficiency over a range of speeds are appealing to today’s coastal cruiser. Those with style and a bit of panache are sure to have their own admirers. The Absolute 52 Navetta will certainly fall into both categories.
