The Riva Diable is back, in a modern version. The Riva 68′ Diable, 20.67 meters long, is the latest project launched by Riva Yacht. A modern project, but with deep roots in the history of the brand. This yacht, in fact, has its predecessor in another open, the Riva Diable, which was born on the hull of the Riva Super America. Riva 68 Diable will make its official debut in a world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival, in September 2021 and then in Genoa Boat Show.
Riva 68′ Diable
The design of the new Riva 68′ Diable consolidates Riva’s position in the under 70-foot market with a motorboat that is sporty and fast but also focuses heavily on onboard livability. Like all of Riva’s production over the last 27 years, the project is the brainchild of Mauro Micheli, founder with Sergio Beretta of Officina Italiana Design, in collaboration with the Strategic Product Committee chaired by Engineer Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department.
Riva 68′ Diable – Exteriors
On the exteriors, the design of the Riva 68′ Diable focuses on the unmistakable line of Riva yachts. A sporty and elegant profile makes this 20.67-meter yacht ideal for those who want to experience the Mediterranean at its best. The project focuses strongly on onboard liveability. The new hardtop with its linear and clean design hides the technical and technological elements from view. At the same time, it protects and shelters the central areas, including the dining area and the command station on the main deck.
The roof can be opened in two directions (forward and reverse). The cockpit is furnished with two large sundecks, one with a chaise-longue facing the sea and another that can be covered, together with the dining area, thanks to an automatic sliding bimini integrated into the hardtop. A livable area will also be located in the bow.
Riva 68′ Diable – Interiors
Belowdeck the layout includes 3 cabins for 6 guests, which are developed around an open area with galley and dinette. The master cabin is amidships, the twin cabin with single beds is to port, while the VIP is forward. Each cabin is served by a bathroom.
