Riva 76’ Perseo coupé triumphed in the category Custom Yachts during the ceremony held at the London Boat Show, bringing the brand its inaugural nautical award in 2017. The 2017 edition of “Motor Boat Awards” was organized by IPC Media, the British publisher of some of the most important international nautical magazines. The ceremony took place in London on January 9th, during the Gala dinner organized at “The Rosewood Hotel”, in conjunction with the 63th edition of the London Boat Show which will run until the 15th of January, and to which Ferretti Group participates through its exclusive dealer Ventura UK.
A unique design of the Riva 76’ Perseo has granted it the prize in the Custom Yachts category. The award is allocated after the thorough study of technical, aesthetic, innovative criteria, and only awarded after full performance tests and sea trials carried out by journalists and the publishing house, supported by engineers in shipyards.
The Riva 76’ Perseo is the result of the cooperation between Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee, the Group’s Engineering Department, and designer Mauro Micheli, co-founder, together with Sergio Beretta, of Officina Italiana Design, the design firm that exclusively pencils Riva’s entire fleet. The yacht’s hull and superstructure are characterized by sporty aesthetics which is further enhanced by the more than 430 square feet of glass surfaces. The large windows in the hull, used on both sides, is composed of two elliptical surfaces, which are connected to each other by the Riva logo, made of a material that has always distinguished the brand: polished stainless steel. The large sundeck is harmoniously integrated in the aerodynamic lines of the yacht and allows you to relax in privacy, as well as giving the opportunity to steer the yacht from a privileged position. Congratulations!
