The first Riva 68’ Diable at the Sarnico shipyard


Riva has launched the first 68’ Diable on Lake Iseo following its construction at the shipyard’s lakeside facility in Sarnico, east of Milan. Ferretti Group will host the model’s world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival from September 7-12 before it’s displayed at the Genoa International Boat Show from September 16-21.

The 68’ Diable has a top speed of 40 knots with the option of twin MAN V12 1,650mhp engines and was designed by Mauro Micheli, co-founder of Officina Italiana Design, with Ferretti Group. It features a built-in hard top with sunroof, while the lower deck includes a galley and dinette, full-beam master suite midships, twin cabin to port and VIP forward.

Alberto Galassi, CEO of Ferretti Group, said: “Riva 68’ Diable is the irresistible temptation to which every Riva owner and fan can’t wait to succumb. It looks like a design from the future but is also a fantastic journey through Riva’s hallmark style and sophisticated detailing.

“An unrivalled mix of innovation and masterful hand craftsmanship, it offers outstanding performance and unparalleled comfort. I understand the enthusiasm generated around this incredible boat and it gives me immense pleasure.”
