The new speedboat is the worthy successor of masterworks like Aquariva Super and, before that, Aquarama: it combines the style and charm of these legendary models with the most cutting edge technologies, and offers the greatest care for every detail, together with a level of comfort and spaces never seen before in boats of this size.
Rivamare is a leap into the future, forged in the Riva tradition: a motorboat born to be memorable.”
The stern features a major innovation, offering the luxury of a beach area.
The hatch, with inbuilt mahogany steps, in fact swings open to reveal a large surface. Using the inclination of the stern and the level surface of the beach area, two specially designed ergonomic sun pads can be positioned over the hatch, offering the opportunity to experience the sea in a unique style.
With the hatch still open, more steps appear, complete with two storage compartments at the sides.
Upon request, the compartment on the starboard side can be enlarged in order to store a Seabob.
The beach platform is completed by the fender bar with a mahogany top. The stainless steel boarding ladder is housed beside the hatch. An underwater lighting system can be installed upon request. Past the two sundecks separated by a central walkway, we reach the cockpit.
It is furnished with a large C-shaped sofa set around the folding table in mahogany and stainless steel. This space, featuring numerous technical compartments as well as storage compartments for guests, can be protected by a retractable electro-hydraulic bimini top.
Situated behind the helm station are two furniture units which, in addition to holding the structure of the pilot and co-pilot seats, can also be used as a cocktail preparation area. Both have an upper hatch with a mahogany top and stainless steel frame. Inside them, we find a washbasin, a Corian cutting board, a pull-out drawer for the bar set and glasses and a drawer refrigerator in the left hand cabinet, and in the unit on the starboard side an ice dispenser as well as two useful baskets for separate waste collection.
The pilothouse design draws inspiration from the driver’s cabin in sports cars: the entire control panel is in carbon fibre with the frame lined in technical fabric. In addition to two handle bars in polished stainless steel and mahogany, it is embellished by other rich details, including the name of the model and serial number, both in chrome plated steel.
The helm station is worthy of a yacht: as well as the pilot and co-pilot seats, there is a third seat on the starboard side. Custom-designed for Rivamare by Officina Italiana Design, these seats feature a boat-coloured frame, upholstery in technical fabric and other refined details also found in the most recent Riva models.
Finally, on the left side of the windscreen is once again the search light, a hallmark of the Aquarama and Aquariva Super models, showing the close continuity between Rivamare and these past and present icons.
In terms of the use of interior spaces, the engineers and designers have created a masterpiece: a luxurious open space consisting of a kitchen, a bathroom with separate shower, and a living area in the bow that converts into a double bed.
Moreover, two of the three steps leading down from the cockpit fold back towards the stern and align with the top step, so that the whole area can be used to the best advantage. The standard wood finish proposed by the boatyard is rift cut white veneer, but the first six boats have been realized in gloss varnished mahogany in order to celebrate this unique event.
The kitchen has a Corian worktop, a sink, a refrigerator and a microwave oven. An ice maker can be added on request. Wall cabinets with leather-lined doors complete the interior design of an elegant and functional kitchen.
Two skylights, in the kitchen and bathroom ceilings respectively, provide perfect air circulation.
Crockery, glasses and the coffee maker are stored in a tall cabinet with pull-out mahogany shelves, positioned opposite the kitchen. Situated in the lower compartment is the boat’s electrical switchboard.
The design of the dinette is dominated by a large sofa moulded around the shape of the bow. Stored inside a central locker is a pull-out board which turns it into a double bed. A TV can be installed on the bulkhead of the bow upon request. To complete the furnishings, it is possible to add an instant refrigerator for Magnum bottles, hidden by a top, while the double blind – daytime and blackout – provides a screen over the large skylight.
The entire lighting system, run on LED lights, is controlled through chrome-plated switch covers, personalized with the Riva logo.
There are also plenty of lockers, finished in polished fibreglass, located in the bilges.
