Riva Yacht’s latest coupe, the 76-foot Perseo, which was launched last September, was named Adriatic Boat of the Year during the 21st edition of Internautica, a European show that ended Sunday at Portoroz Marina in Slovenia.
The award ceremony took place Wednesday. The yacht was named winner in the Motor Yacht over 61 feet category. Also on the short list of nominees was the new Ferretti Yachts 700.
Last year the group won the same prize with its Navetta 28, a maxi semiplaning yacht by Custom Line.
“We are proud to be among the winners for the second year in a row at this boat show, one of the most important for the local market in Slovenia and for Europe as a whole,” Ferretti Group chief commercial officer Stefano De Vivo said in a statement.
“After its successful debut at Cannes last September, this new award is emphasizing the 76-foot Perseo’s status as a new icon in Riva’s coupe fleet, with a perfect mixture of the brand’s traditional styling and the latest design trends. We are also pleased with the very positive reception by our international clientele, in Europe, as well as America and Japan, where the first 76 Perseo was sold.”
The Ferretti Group attended Internautica with its dealer MennYacht, displaying for the first time in Slovenia the Ferretti Yachts 960 — the brand’s flagship — and the Pershing 70 and other yachts by the group.
