Born where legend and technology intersect, 66’ Ribelle is the new sport flybridge by Riva, ready to write a new chapter in the history of boating, design and luxury. The art of sailing gains a new masterpiece with this extraordinary vessel, that combines the allure of a timeless style with the pleasure and comfort of countless innovative on-board features.
66’ Ribelle, the flagship of the Sarnico shipyard, continues the evolutionary path that began with 56’ Rivale: conceived as an entry level model in Riva’s sport fly range, it aims to become the new benchmark in its market segment. Born through a collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the atelier founded and headed by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta, the Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department, 66’ Ribelle sets a new standard of excellence in combining style with functionality and beauty with technology.
The hull’s streamlined profile – in the exclusive Blue Sapphire colouration, introduced here for the first time – features large glass windows on the hull and on the superstructure. The exterior lines draw inspiration from those of the 76’ Perseo, with the addition of new style elements in mahogany and polished stainless steel (which also serve technical purposes), that pay homage to both the history of the Sarnico shipyard and to the storied Riva tradition. Noteworthy elements include the aft wings, the garage door – fitted with a mahogany band with a stainless steel perimeter, above which is a mahogany and steel lifeline –, and the side lifelines of the superstructure, in mahogany with steel ends.
