New Riva Yacht exhibited

Portoroz, 13 May 2012 - Elegance, ease of transportation and innovative technologies merge with the shipyard’s hundred year tradition of excellence to create a new pearl of the nautical world. In July 2011 Riva, the iconic Ferretti Group brand, presented a new model at the historical Lake d’Iseo shipyards, featuring elegance and ease of transportation as its main characteristics. From 27th April until 7th May 2012 the model Riva Iseo was exhibited in the park of the Kempinski Palace Portoroz hotel.

Iseo is destined to become a must-have for those who love cruising on both lakes and the sea. In just 27 feet one can enjoy the perfection and style that has made Riva a true icon of timeless glamour. Soft, clean-cut lines, thorough space-planning, unique attention to details and the use of highly sophisticated materials are the key characteristics which make the new Iseo the noble heiress.

Iseo values the surrounding environment and is an innovative option suitable for day cruising in waters with high environmental value. The yacht will also be available in a hybrid engine version with the ZEM (Zero Emission Mode) cruising option, Ferretti Group’s revolutionary cruising mode system, particularly suitable for lakes, especially where normal boating is forbidden. The “Hybrid Propulsion ZEM” version, with hybrid propulsion and Zero Emission, will not compromise the speed of the yacht.

And not only: Iseo is equipped with stern drive making it highly reactive and enhancing the drive of this yacht. Moreover, it can be fitted with a 3hp bow propeller in order to facilitate manoeuvres and mooring.

Besides responding to an increasing demand for on-board infotainment, it is also the very first yacht of its kind to be equipped with both infotainment and GPS charts built for the Apple platform for iPad.
