Riva 56′ – New Open Yacht Revealed

Riva 56'

At BOOT 2017 in Düsseldorf, Riva reveals the design for its latest open yacht – Riva 56′, although its debut is planned for late spring this year. The Riva 56’ is the result of the joint efforts of Officina Italiana Design – the studio founded by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta – Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and Engineering Department. The result is a stylish combination of the most prestigious materials and attention to detail that has always been the hallmark of the Riva world: from the high gloss mahogany of the interiors to the natural teak of the exteriors, the lacquered finishes and stainless steel, mirrors, glass and leather.

In the stern, the Riva 56’ introduces an important new development in the system used to move the swimming platform. As you walk down to the swimming platform, the steps continue under water to reveal additional steps built into the hull. This new feature makes it possible to go directly up into the cockpit without having to use the steel ladder, although this is also available for use. The aft area features a garage accommodating a Williams 325 tender behind the carbon fibre hatch. Underneath the roll bar, the comfortable forward-facing sofa combines with the L-shaped sofa and teak dining table to form a pleasant area to enjoy lunch, with a slightly raised dormeuse, next to the bridge.

To starboard, the cabinet unit can accommodate a fridge, ice-maker, grill, sink and storage compartments, and stretches as far as the bridge seating and is integrated into its base. The roll bar not only adds a finishing touch to the profile, it also acts as a support for the antennas. In case of bad weather, or if the owner simply wants some shade, the electro-hydraulically operated bimini top can be opened, as can the clear side shields, offering excellent protection for the area. The standard layout offers two guest cabins and three bathrooms, with a dinette, galley and crew cabin with separate access. The master cabin amidships has an en-suite bathroom on the left side. The L-shaped dinette and galley are just as you go below deck, featuring mirrored surfaces and a vast amount of storage compartments, plus fridge and TV. The glass hatch cover increases the natural light in the dinette.

Forward is the VIP cabin and its many storage areas. The addition of a day head accessed directly from the dinette is an important benefit, as it makes it possible to exploit the full potential of the open for day cruises with several guests who can use this facility without having to enter the master or guest cabins.
The Riva 56’ will be fitted with twin 1000 HP MAN engines, or twin 1200 HP MAN engines on request. Both configurations feature a V-Drive propulsion system and, again on request, a Seakeeper stabiliser can be fitted to minimise roll when underway and at anchor.
