Riva 110’ Flybridge, a new chapter

Riva is writing another beautiful page of its history with this 110-foot superyacht built in fiberglass, designed by Officina Italiana Design by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta

di Francesco Michienzi

In addition to the essential role it plays in defining the plans to build a boat, design evokes a series of ideas and feelings that aim to offer a better quality of life on board. The perception that originates from this process depends entirely on the way in which people interpret space.

On Riva’s new flagship, designed by Officina Italiana Design, owned by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta, you immediately feel you are in the presence of greatness. The beauty of this boat must be appreciated also taking into account its significant size. Each detail fits in perfectly with the rest, in seamless harmony, with no clashes.

The need for space was addressed with an accurate study on the proportions between full and empty shapes. Even the colours chosen for each element featured add and contribute to the success of the project. Each detail is the result of careful work carried out knowing that the difference is in the details, like the asymmetric design of the hard top, enriched by the extensive glazing framed in stainless steel. Great care has also gone into the four guest cabins, with a full beam owner suite. The boat is 34 meters long, 7 meters wide and it is equipped with two MTU engines of 1939 kW each. The estimated top speed is of 26 knots.
