Riva 110 is reminiscent of the unforgettable Anita Ekberg bathing in the waters of Trevi Fountain
Riva 110 . It’s fast. It features super sexy style. It has an exceptionally smooth ride. Need more? Read on….
The 34m superyacht features styling by long-term collaborator Officina Italiana Design, including chrome inserts and extensive glazing that surrounds the main deck owner’s cabin and raised pilothouse.
The Dolcevita is powered by twin 16V 2000 MTU diesel engines that give it an estimated top speed of 26 knots. At its cruise speed of 23 knots, it has a range of 430 nautical miles.
The forward master suite is also bathed in natural light, with a queen-size bed positioned against the forward bulkhead, offering an exceptional view of either side of the yacht. On the lower deck are four staterooms, roughly equal in size, which is unusual for a yacht this size. Usually there are two large and two small. The crew quarters forward are likewise generous, with two staterooms, the galley, and an L-shaped lounge.
For the largest Riva ship we have chosen a name that is still endowed with sparkle and charm,” says Alberto Galassi, CEO of the Ferretti Group. “Cruising on this amazing 34 metre yacht is an aesthetic and emotional experience akin to the amazement felt by anyone watching the passing of Rex, the famous cruise ship featured in the film Amarcord, another of Federico Fellini’s masterpieces.”
It’s a bold but elegant statement and should attract a small legion of Riva devotees when it is shown to the public this summer.
The Dolcevita also has a Ferretti-patented stern in which the swim platform lowers into the water and the garage actually floods (housing a 5.7-metre Williams Dieseljet RIB, as well as a Jet Ski), making it easy to launch and retrieve the tender.
The flybridge is also intricately designed in terms of proportions, with its forward section featuring a dining table and lounge portside, and a second lounge and teak table to starboard. The aft section was left bare, incorporating loose furniture across the large space. These pieces can be removed if the owner wants to use the space for a large get-together (the boat is rated for 20 guests).
Riva 110’ Dolcevita is huge from every point of view. Its visual impact takes the breath away as does the incomparable combination of aesthetics and function, state-of-the-art technology and sea-faring experience.
