Riva Yachts will debut two models at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September — the Rivamare, which was unveiled during a press event at the Italian shipyard this week, and the 76-foot Bahamas, a new convertible yacht that will make its first appearance at the boat show.
The 39-foot Rivamare comes from a collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, a firm headed by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta, and the Ferretti Group’s engineering department and strategic product committee.
“The conception, design and construction of the new and remarkable Rivamare has been a very exciting experience for us,” Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi said in a statement. “A masterpiece created in our magnificent, completely renovated boatyard in Sarnico, with a production line exclusively dedicated to the new model, taking forward Carlo Riva’s dream to always build the most beautiful boat.”
The boat is equipped with a pair of D6 400 DPH Volvo Penta engines and can reach a cruising speed of 31 knots and a maximum speed of 40 knots.
“The new speedboat is the worthy successor of masterworks like Aquariva Super and, before that, Aquarama,” Galassi said. “It combines the style and charm of these legendary models with the most cutting-edge technologies and offers the greatest care for every detail, together with a level of comfort and spaces never seen before in boats of this size.”
Details of the Bahamas model will be revealed at the Sept. 6-11 Cannes show.
