Photo: Riva SpaThe flagship superyacht's debut took place outside the Monaco Yacht Club and coincided with the occasion of the Grand Prix Historique automobile race taking place in the principality between 11-13th May. Both yacht owners and car enthusiasts alike were able to see the 33.51-metre flagship for the first time at an event also attended by HRH Prince Albert of Monaco.Photo: Riva Spa"‘Dolcevita’ indicates a period and a style that could only be associated with a yacht of unrivalled beauty, one whose appeal will resonate in the yachting world for decades to come,” said Alberto Galassi, Ferretti Group CEO. He continued, “We chose Monte Carlo for its debut because this is one of the most ‘Dolcevita’ locations in the world, and the Grand Prix Historique, which is an event where legends meet.”Photo: RivaThis 33.51-metre superyacht is a collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the Strategic Product Committee, and the Ferretti Group’s engineering department who were inspired by the lines of the Riva 100 Corsaro as inspiration to create a contemporary and distinctly stylish Riva-style exterior.
This all-GRP flybridge yacht also features chrome inserts and extensive glazing surrounding the main deck owner's cabin and raised pilothouse. With a focus on al fresco living throughout the superyacht, she features a foredeck seating area complete with superyacht spa pool and an aft sun lounging area located on the upper deck. The main deck cockpit leads into a saloon, described as a "luxury loft" by the shipyard due to its floor-to-ceiling windows and its opening up to the elements on three sides. Photo: Riva Spa
With a tender garage large enough to house a 5.7 metre Williams Dieseljet RIB tender and as well as a jet, 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.
