This week the new Riva 76' Perseo coupé won the Custom Yachts category of the Motor Boat Awards, organized by IPC Media during the London Boat Show, making it one of the biggest hits in Riva’s recent history.
The Custom Line 108’ was also shortlisted reflecting the unanimous appreciation of Ferretti's latest models by the jury. The award is allocated on the basis of technical, aesthetic and innovative criteria, following performance tests and sea trials carried out by journalists and supported by engineers in shipyards.
“This year, we triumphed with a yacht that has received prestigious awards and unanimous success since its debut at the 2015 Cannes Yachting Festival. With this new prize, the 76’ Perseo confirms itself as a true icon in the Riva coupe fleet.
For us, then, to receive this award here has even more value because the United Kingdom, as well as a country of great tradition and nautical culture, is a strategic market in which Ferretti Group is proud to represent the Italian design excellence and industry.” said Stefano de Vivo, CCO of Ferretti Group.
RIVA 76’ PERSEO
The new coupe is the result of cooperation between Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee, Engineering Department, and designer Mauro Micheli, co-founder, together with Sergio Beretta, of Officina Italiana Design, the design firm that works exclusivel on Riva's entire fleet. The yacht reflects sportiness and legance, enhanced by over 430 square feet of glass. The large windows in the hull are composed of two elliptical surfaces, connected by the Riva logo, made of polished stainless steel.
