The collection of Riva Destinations, the sought-after locations by international yachting enthusiasts, among others, has been complemented by a new destination in Europe’s chicest capital: the inauguration of the first Riva Privée in Paris, in partnership with Splash Bistro at Port Van Gogh on the Seine.
An absolute must for those looking for an exclusive experience. The Riva Privée offers Splash guests the opportunity to visit the French capital by cruising up the river comfortably aboard an Aquariva Super, and to discover glimpses of rare beauty in one of the most romantic cities in the world.
The Riva Privée at Splash Bistro, Port Van Gogh, is one of a kind: the bohemian charm typical of Île-de-France meets the class and heritage of Riva to give guests an unprecedented Riva Brand Experience. In line with the concept of all the Riva Destinations, the interior design reflects the style and the legendary details of the iconic yachts: from aquamarine cushions to chrome, steel details and lacquered mahogany tables, all customized with the Riva logo.
Outside is a stylish beach area, again customized with Riva furniture, offering maximum relaxation. The culinary offering is also first class, provided by Thomas Balland, resident chef at Splash.
The Riva Privée at Splash is part of the Riva Destinations project, created to offer yacht owners and others unique experiences and sophisticated locales, the so-called “places to be”, that are all about timeless class and elegance, with a relaxed and informal style that fosters conviviality. Riva Lounges, Privées and Decks are present in exclusive locations worldwide, including Venice, Monte Carlo, Formentera, Opatija, Mykonos, and Palm Beach.
More than any other model, this the Aquariva Super 33-footer testifies Riva’s natural style evolution over the years. She is the product of a close working relationship between Mauro Micheli founder with Sergio Beretta of Officina Italiana Design, the studio that designs all yachts in the Riva range, and the Ferretti Group’s Engineering Department.
Its soft, elegant lines reflect a taste for tradition, the valuable, beautifully carved wooden decks (mahogany inlaid with maple) and leather trimmings of the dashboard and helm highlight the pleasure of sailing in a timeless classic offering unique, incomparable emotions and comfort.
The innovative, electronically-controlled, two speed gearbox reveals all the gritty passion of the two engines and features an exceptional performance.
Symbol of Riva’s modern elegance and style, Aquariva has confirmed its success on all continents, just as the legendary Aquarama – now a cult yacht for collectors all over the world – did a few decades ago.
Equipped with two engines YANMAR 8LV-370, with power 370 mhp, provides a maximum speed of 41,5 knots and a cruising speed of 36 knots.
