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.
Meeting the needs of boaters in the U.S. has some builders around the world scratching their heads, but not Rio Yachts. This Italian builder knows what works and what doesn’t, and adds a creative touch and fine finish to differentiate its product from lots of other boats out there.
