Perfect for those who love spending their holiday on the sea and those who enjoy unforgettable day cruises, the 56’ Rivale is unrivalled, gliding triumphantly through the shipyard’s 175-year-old history. Full of charm, power and technology, it immediately conveys elegance and sport. The sleek, glazed windows run seamlessly across the hull with flush portholes, enabling those on board to feel truly part of the sea, and the bold metallic of the exterior is joined with sleek steel elements and teak detailing A further touch of style that distinguishes the Rivale: the unique windshield protecting the helm, a true blend of engineering and design resulting in a stunning aerodynamic profile. Officina Italiana Design joined forces with Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and Engineering Department, to create the completely new hull of the Riva’s 56’ Rivale. The utmost attention to detail is classically Riva, using the finest materials, distinctive hallmarks of the brand throughout its history: from the high gloss mahogany of the interiors to the natural teak of the exteriors, from lacquered finishes to stainless steel details, and from mirrored and glazed surfaces to superior leathers, the legacy of all the stars that make up the universe of Riva is reflected in the new Rivale.

2018 Ferretti 550. This new flybridge yacht plays a crucial role in the brand’s development strategy. The Ferretti Yachts 550, which features an unprecedented hull design, equipment and engine room arrangement and interior layout, is once again the brilliant outcome of the long-standing cooperation between the Group, its Engineering Department in particular, and Studio Zuccon International Project. This yacht combines elegance and a very sporty character, with clear-cut and yet very seducing lines. The main deck uninterrupted glazing ‘cuts’ the yacht’s profile, increasing its dynamic look, while the three large glazed surfaces on the hull sides – the cabin windows – perfectly harmonize with the overall design and grant magnificent views from the interiors as well as plenty of natural light. The frameless fiberglass flush portholes result in very clean lines. The lowered flybridge and the new forward lounge area on the wheelhouse offer incredibly wide outdoor relaxation areas, ensuring great privacy with no impact on the craft’s slender profile.
