First Three Riva 88’ Domino Super Hulls Sold
Published: Wednesday, 22 July 2015
Riva announces the sale of the first three hulls of the new Riva coupé yacht series, the Riva 88 Domino Super.
The 26.7-metre yacht was launched by the Italian boat builder, part of the Ferretti Group, in Monaco in May.
“The official presentation of the 88’ Domino Super at the Yacht Club de Monaco was a very exciting moment and now, we can surely say that event was the starting point of what is already a commercial success,” says Ferretti Group Chief Commercial Officer Stefano de Vivo. “Less than two months after, Riva and the Ferretti Group are proud to announce the sale of three yachts.”
The three yachts have been sold in three different markets, showing how the 88’ Domino Super has been welcomed enthusiastically at an international level. The first hull will go to an owner from continental Europe, the second will be delivered in the Asia-Pacific and the third will cruise across Middle-East seas.
These are the first positive results of a commercial strategy aimed at confirming the leadership of the Ferretti Group’s most iconic brand across the world.
The 88’ Domino Super is characterized by a slender profile and an extensive restyling. Its aerodynamic lines are enhanced by the hull’s original colour shade, the dark ‘London Grey’ in contrast with the lighter ‘Moon Grey’ chosen for the superstructure.
She is full of innovative features including a new sun deck providing additional comfort space and the restyled aft area. The aft swimming platform can be lowered into the sea, making diving into the water and getting back onboard much easier, as well as enhancing tender launching and haulage operations.
In the standard version, the yacht is equipped with two MTU 16V 2000 M93, 2435 Mhp engines, allowing it to reach a maximum speed of 38 knots and a cruising speed of 34 knots. As an option, two MTU 16V 2000 M94, 2638 Mhp engines can be installed instead, pushing the yacht up to 40 knots and ensuring a cruising speed of 35 knots.
The Riva 88 Domino Super will be on display as a worldwide premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2015, September 8-13.
