Shanghai, 20th March 2017 - The magnificent seven: that’s the number of awards the Riva 76’ Perseo has received in less than two years since its world debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2015.
An overwhelming success for this yacht with its sporty and elegant lines, the object of desire of yacht owners and Riva enthusiasts worldwide. The latest born of the coupé fleet designed by Riva, which celebrates its 175th anniversary this year triumphed in the Best of the Best Awards given by Robb Report China, as Best Motoryacht up to 100 feet.
The awards ceremony, called “Robb Report 2017 Originality 10 Years Anniversary Gala”, was held last night at the hotel Wanda Reign on the Bund in Shanghai.
For ten years now, the awards bestowed by the Chinese edition of the famous lifestyle magazine have singled out the best products in the various categories of the luxury sector.
The Best of the Best Awards are dedicated to all those who are true connoisseurs of yachts, automobiles, hotels, watches, and wines, an eagerly awaited event on the Asia market which has often spotlighted Ferretti Group brands.
“This is another significant victory for the Riva 76’ Perseo, the second in just a few weeks in Asia, following the award received at the Japan International Boat Show,” remarked Stefano De Vivo, Ferretti Group’s Chief Commercial Officer. “The 76’ Perseo has also captivated the audience of yachting enthusiasts in China, for whom Robb Report, the international magazine of reference in the world of luxury, is the leading voice. As a result of this latest recognition, the 76’ Perseo can be considered one of the most highly acclaimed Riva yachts ever, based on the successes it has achieved in less than two years in Europe, America, and Asia-Pacific.
We are extremely proud of this Best of the Best Award in particular because we have won the same award numerous times, with Riva and with other brands of the Group, including Ferretti Yachts, Pershing, and Custom Line, adding further confirmation of the absolute quality of our yachts, the standard bearers of Italian genius worldwide.”
The coupé is the result of the collaboration between designer Mauro Micheli, the founder along with Sergio Beretta of Officina Italiana Design (the firm that exclusively designs the entire Riva fleet) and the Ferretti Group’s Strategic Product Committee and Engineering Department.
The 76’ Perseo’s sporty look is further enhanced by the more than 40 square metres of glazed surfaces. The expansive hull glazing, on both sides, is composed of two elliptical surfaces ideally interconnected by the Riva logo, made of polished stainless steel, one of the brand’s most distinctive materials.
The spacious sun deck integrates harmoniously with the yacht’s aerodynamic lines, ensuring relaxation in the utmost privacy as well as allowing the yacht to be piloted from a prime position.
