Ferretti has announced that its latest Riva model, the new Riva 76’ coupé, is currently under construction at its plant in La Spezia, Italy. The new Riva will make its debut in September at the Ferretti Group Première event in Montecarlo, followed by the Cannes Yachting Festival 2015.
Alberto Galassi, Ferretti CEO, says the new Riva 76’ coupé combines the inheritance of the past with state-of-the-art technology. “With this contemporary coupé and the other two new Riva models we are presenting in 2015, Riva confirms once again its role of ambassador of the Italian beauty, technology and unrivalled style,” he says.
The Riva 76’ is the result of a cooperation between Mauro Micheli – the co-founder, with Sergio Beretta, of Officina Italiana Design (the firm that exclusively designs the entire Riva range) – along with Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and the group’s engineering department.
The Riva 76’ has a 22.98m (75.5ft) overall length and a beam of 5.75m (18.1ft). The yacht’s sporty features and elegance are further enhanced by its colour shades. The first hull boasts a new shade of metal silver, the already well-known Moon Grey, which is the dominating colour, found both in the hull and in most of the superstructure. In this model, it is combined with Riva’s classical dark shade, Bright Black, which has been used to better define the stylish shapes and volumes designed by OID. The sporty look is further highlighted by the over 40sq m of glazed surfaces.
The Riva 76’ comes with two V-drive MAN V12, 1,550 MHP engines, which allow it to reach a maximum speed of 33kt and a cruising speed of 29kt. The owner can also choose more powerful engines – i.e. two MAN V12, 1,800 MHP each – that will push the yacht to a maximum speed of 37kt and a cruising speed of 32kt.
