Dolceriva has a V-Drive shaft line propulsion system
The Riva yacht’s 48-foot Dolceriva hardtop, which made its debut in June 2021, will be offered for sale during the Ferretti Group exhibit at the show. A collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the Ferretti Group Engineering Department and the Product Strategy Committee, this yacht features an exterior that combines Riva’s signature elegance with an automotive-inspired vibe that gives a sporty interpretation of luxury. .
The forward surface of the main deck is finished with the legendary high-gloss mahogany with its 20 coats of varnish, and it has a crystal section with an integrated skylight allowing the cabin below deck to receive plenty of natural light.
A detail that pays homage to Riva’s history includes mahogany and steel rear fenders, while the rounded stern recalls the artwork of Riva’s Ariston and Tritone models. An aesthetic touch includes a windshield made of spherical crystals and a slight counter-curvature, which has become a Riva trademark.
In the cockpit, aft are sundecks, and in the middle is the saloon with a bar and furniture including sofas and a folding table that seats eight people. Forward is the helm featuring a Garmin Empirbus monitoring system.
Stefano de Vivo, Commercial Director of the Ferretti Group, describes the new hardtop and its advantages: “It is made from a hybrid carbon-vinylester composite material to ensure lightness, resistance and rigidity, thus optimizing habitability. “, did he declare. “It is designed to perfectly cover the entire exterior cockpit and helm station, with the possibility of closing the entire area below using transparent canopies on each side, forward and even on the back.”
Aft of the main deck is a concealed integrated beach platform that folds out. Two sunbeds are integrated into it, and behind them hides a storage space for the Seabobs.
Below deck is the saloon, which is equipped with a dinette and a sofa, a kitchen, a bathroom and a closet. The adjoining owner’s cabin, located forward, is furnished with a centrally placed bed, and the suite includes two closets and storage drawers under the berth. A twin-berth stateroom is aft of the salon.
All materials and finishes used for Dolceriva’s interiors reflect the Riva style, detailed by glossy mahogany, mirrored surfaces, leather, steel and lacquered woods.
Dolceriva has a V-Drive shaft-line propulsion system and mounts two Volvo Penta D13 engines, each rated at 1,000 hp. On the performance side, the model can reach a top speed of 40 knots, with a cruising speed of 35 knots.
