Riva 90 by Fort Lauderdale: Design unveiled
Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, in its 58th edition, hosted a grand preview of the new boat Riva 90.
At boot Dusseldorf, the exterior look was revealed for the flybridge. The 90-foot yacht is the latest addition to the new-generation of Riva flybridge range and complements the highly successful Riva 100 Corsaro and Riva 110 Dolcevita, which is set to be launched in 2018.
The beauty is a superb sequela of the collaboration between Officina Italiana, a studio founded by designer Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta and the Ferretti Group's Product Strategy Committee, and the Group’s Engineering Department. With meticulous emphasis on exterior styling, the new yacht combines and reinforces the unique selling points of its predecessors.
The Ferretti Group's innovative features are patented with a concealed stairway system, already installed on the new 56 Rivale. The garage can accommodate a Williams 395 tender and a personal watercraft, which can be launched independently. Riva is a brand of Ferretti group, a world leader in design, construction and sale of motor yachts and pleasure vessels, with a unique portfolio of prestigious and exclusive brands.
The engine specifications of the luxury yacht symbolize a pair of MTU 12V 2000 M96L engines (1948 MHP each) for a cruising speed of 22 knots and a maximum speed of 26 knots. Alternatively, owners can choose twin MTU 16V 2000 M84 engines (2218 MHP each) for a cruising speed of 24 knots and a maximum speed of 28 knots.
A third option, which is installed on the first unit, is a pair of MTU 16V 2000 M93 engines (2435 MHP each) for cruising speed of 26 knots and a maximum speed of 30 knots. Leaving the yacht to be lavish as well as speedy enough to be one of the most attractive in the Boat Show this time.
Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is quite an event for all those who happen to have a fixation for cruising and associated luxury, and why not, in the recent bash, the show’s new “Superyacht village” featured the best debutants. Madsummer, the 180-foot-long Heesen Vida, 236-foot-long Solo, and yachts from Benetti—including the 116-foot-long Mr Loui and 125-foot-long Lejos.
Keep pampering yourself. Happy cruising!
