First look: on board the new Riva 110 Dolcevita

Written by Charl van Rooy

Following the success of Riva’s 100 Corsaro line that was introduced in 2016, the Italian brand extended the same philosophy that made the line such a hit to create the first Riva 110 Dolcevita. Along with Officina Italiana Design, the Strategic Product Committee and the Ferretti Group’s engineering department, the Riva 110 captures the Italian style of yachting the good life that goes with it like few other yachts in her class. Here we get a closer look at this sculpted piece of art.Riva 110 Dolcevita cruisingPhoto: Riva

As the current flagship in Riva’s fleet, the 33.5-metre 110 Dolcevita is larger than her smaller 100-foot sister, but every inch as stylish and just as manageable for an owner. Riva offers its clients the option to include a four-cabin VIP setup on the lower deck or alternatively a full-beam ‘second owner’s’ suite aft along with two double VIP cabins forward for a total of either eight or 10 guests respectively.Riva 110 Dolcevita cruisingPhoto: RivaRiva 110 Dolcevita anchoredPhoto: Riva

The flybridge offers guests the best of both worlds and it is here where you can relax under the unique composite hardtop with inlaid glass panels without feeling the effects of the wind or disturbances from the marina pier when in port. It is also from her that the yacht’s captain or owner can steer the yacht from on those sunny and wind-free Mediterranean days. Riva 110 Dolcevita upper deckPhoto: RivaRiva 110 Dolcevita sundeckPhoto: Riva

The use of glass throughout the yacht is extensive, with the largest pieces sitting on either side of the main lounge and provides an uninterrupted view to the outside. Curved panels in the sundeck structure allow extra light into this outdoor social area and a large curved piece provides perfect visibility from the raised pilothouse.Riva 110 Dolcevita sidedeckPhoto: RivaRiva 110 Dolcevita exterior detailPhoto: Riva

Guest space outside has been maximised with the extended use of the foredeck as an outdoor lounge. This is one of the best spots on board the Riva 110 and comes with a Jacuzzi and an open lounge/sunbathing area.Riva 110 Dolcevita foredeckPhoto: Riva

With a lazarette large enough to house a 5.7-metre Williams Dieseljet RIB tender as well as a jet ski, the vessel has also been fitted with the Ferretti Group’s unique submersible transom, which allows for quick tender launches and enables direct access to the sea. This patent-pending system contains a garage door that can fold down to create a bathing platform before lowering into the water when required. Riva 110 Dolcevita profilePhoto: Riva

Fitted with an advanced stabilisation system, a comfortable ride comes as standard with every Riva 110. A more compact Seakeeper gyro setup can be installed upon request. Riva 110 Dolcevita anchoredPhoto: Riva
