Riva unveils their brand new Riva 68’ Diable

25 May 2021

The next step following the Riva Diable, based on the famous Riva Super America is the Riva 68’ Diable. The Riva shipyard’s unique designs over time are now joined by their latest addition to their world-renowned line-up: the Riva 68’ Diable which takes its place among the open yachts measuring under 70 feet.

The design itself, as is the case for all Riva designs for the past 27 years, is the work of Mauro Micheli, founder, alongside Sergio Beretta, of Officina Italiana Design. As a whole, the new Riva 68’ Diable is in fact the brainchild of yacht designers and the Strategic Product Committee chaired by Pietro Ferrari, and the Engineering Management Team at Ferretti Group.

Among the Riva 68’ Diable’s key features are an open space design conceived to optimise liveability, a hard top that covers the central area of the model and the cockpit’s furniture including two large sunbathing areas. As for the interiors, the inner layout features three double cabins with an owner’s cabin at the heart of the design.

Measuring 20.67 metres in length and 5.29 metres in maximum width, the brand new Riva 68’ Diable can run on a pair of 1140 or 1213 kW Man V12s reaching a top speed of 37 knots. Cruising speed is 33 knots.
