Riva’s New Superyacht
Sharp lines and a ‘shark grey’ palette place this yacht at the top of the food chain.
Introducing Italian shipyard Riva’s latest – 26.8-metre Riva Folgore superyacht.
Arriving in what the marque calls a ‘shark grey’ coloured hull, the slick silhouette comes courtesy of Officina Italiana Design’s Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta, and includes dark tinted hull windows and carbon fibre reinforcements to create what is a unique look.
Of note, the rear door of the vessel opens to sit parallel to the waterline – in turn creating a six square metre ‘beach club’ that can be submerged to launch and recover the tender.
Further enjoyment of the outdoors comes courtesy of the 22 square metre cockpit and dining area in the bow – replete with mahogany tabletop and a huge c-shaped sofa and coffee table.
Despite external chrome adornments, its the interior that really shines – the cockpit, main-deck saloon, dining and helm station areas offering space and an alluring use of wood (polished rosewood; white parquet), leather and steel finishes,
The 20 square metre owner’s suite is offered in three different layouts and is accessed via a Calacatta marble staircase while the floor, shower and basin in the owner’s bathroom are finished in white and gold polished Calacatta marble.
On option are furnishings and designer pieces from the likes of Poliform, B&B Italia and Minotti.
Elsewhere, the newcomer offers four staterooms on the lower deck while remaining guests can sleep in either the two double VIP cabins or twin staterooms – sleeping a total of 10 guests – each with ensuite.
Top speed is 39 knots, with a range of 340 nautical miles at a sharpish cruising speed of 33 knots.
