Riva presented Riva 92’ Duchessa, the highly refined model which has been added to the megayachtsegment, to the American market for the first time at the 51st International Boat Show in Ft. Lauderdale.
Curved, racy lines harmoniously design the profile of this yacht, whose 28 metres enclose all the elegance of Riva style, as always set in a unique, original design solution. Mauro Micheli and his team at Officina Italiana Design, in association with Riva’s Technical Office, have once again designed a yacht with truly winning lines.
The Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show marked a key moment for both the Ferretti Group and its development on the Pan-American market. Indeed, the Group has set itself the aim of further strengthening its presence in the northern part of the continent and Latin America within the sphere of its reorganisation and relaunch plan. In the 2009-2010 nautical year, these areas already represented about 20% of the Group’s consolidated turnover, and are a solid market share. There have also been major increases in some segments, amongst which that of South America.
Moreover, Riva 92’ Duchessa was the leading figure during a VIP Event held at the Ferretti Group Showroom in Fort Lauderdale on 28th October. Organised by the Ferretti Group for clients and dealers, it gave them the opportunity to admire the yacht during its American market première.
