Riva presents: the hard top Dolceriva

An exclusive 48 footer designed for experiencing the open sea with the highest standards of comfort. We are of course referring to the Dolceriva featuring a hard top, the latest creation from Cantiere Riva, a Ferretti Group brand, which stands out for its central cover made from carbon fibre and vinyl ester.   The outcome of a key collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, which has designed the entire Riva fleet for the past 25 years, the Ferretti Group Engineering Department and the Strategic Product Committee, the Dolceriva is 14.92 metres long and 4.26 metres wide.   Bringing together the trademark elegance at the heart of all Riva designs and the latest cutting-edge runabout trends, the brand new Dolceriva featuring a hard top also features a counter-curved windshield and windows on the hull, a concept that will soon become a household signature for Riva along with the model’s unique design.

Baglietto sells their fourth DOM133

A new achievement for the DOM133 by Baglietto, who have just announced the sale of a fourth 40-metre DOM133 designed by Stefano Vafiadis.

Sanlorenzo launches their eighth 500Exp

Now that eight models have been launched, the eighth from La Spezia where Sanlorenzo’s “Superyacht” headquarters is located, and a ninth has already been sold, it is safe to say the 500Exp is among the most sought after 40 to 70-metre designs flying the colours of Massimo Perotti’s shipyard, Former President of the Italian Marine Industry Association.   Measuring 47 metres in length and featuring similar lines to those of an exploration ship, the 500Exp combines vast spaces (vast enough to include a touch-and-go helipad, something yachts under the 50-metre mark usually cannot afford) and Sanlorenzo’s unmistakable hallmark elegance, implementing cutting-edge construction technology, furnishing techniques and systems engineering.   With an aft deck broad enough to contain a 9-metre sailing boat and spacious, interiors that envelope owners and guests in a world of refined materials and exclusive furniture, the eighth 500Exp by Sanlorenzo provides 4,000 miles of autonomy, allowing the
