Riva 88′ Florida: Best Exterior Design & Most Achieved Trophy
Cannes, 16th September 2015 –
Riva triumphed at the “Invictus Yachts Trophies” 2015, the event organized by the French LuxMedia group (publisher of some of the most important magazines in the nautical sector) which rewards the best new developments in yachting world.
The Ferretti Group brand was awarded during the evening Gala on the plage at the Carlton Intercontinental Hotel in Cannes, followed by a spectacular parade of the new yachts off the Croisette.
The two new jewels in Riva’s sporty fleet, the 76’ Perseo coupé and the 88’ Florida open convertible, won two prizes each in the categories they were nominated for.
The 76’ Perseo, few days after its launch and its world début at the “Cannes Yachting Festival 2015”, routed the competition in the 50-80 foot (15-24 meters) class, winning the “Best Exterior Design Trophy” and “Most Achieved Trophy”.
Equally ruthless was the 88’ Florida, which shut out the competition winning both awards it was up for. Like the 76’ Perseo, the new coupé open convertible won the “Best Exterior Design Trophy” and “Most Achieved Trophy” in the 80-120 foot (24-36 metre) class.
“We are proud of this recognition and happy to be taking home these awards from the Cannes boat show, which marks the beginning of the new boating season and, for our Group, the best occasion to present all the newest designs and innovations,” stated Alberto Galassi, CEO of Ferretti Group.
“In particular, the two new Rivas, which together with the other yachts made up an amazing fleet of 21 models, were admired, visited and tested by an incredible number of customers and new boat owners.
This quartet of trophies, along with the fifth obtained by the 73-metre CRN ‘Yalla’, confirms the extraordinary value of our designs. If we hogged the limelight at Cannes, we plan to do the same in the coming weeks, starting at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show, then continuing on to the US in early November where we will be at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.”
