Riva launches second 130’ Bellissima in La Spezia
The Ferretti Group brand launches the second Bellissima at the expanded La Spezia facility, which has opened a new hospitality wing for owners.
Launch of the second Riva 130’ Bellissima
Riva has launched the second hull of the 130’ Bellissima in La Spezia, just a few months after the first hull splashed ahead of the model’s world premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show last September. The 40m model is the flagship of Riva’s Flybridge range, which also includes the 90’ Argo, 102’ Corsaro Super and 110’ Dolcevita, as well as the upcoming 82’ Diva.
Riva 130’ Bellissima has exterior styling and interiors by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta, founders of Officina Italiana Design, working in partnership with Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee led by Piero Ferrari and Engineering Department. The five-cabin yacht is powered by twin 2,638mhp MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines, giving her a top speed of 22.5 knots and a cruising speed of 20 knots.
The La Spezia facility is dedicated to Riva yachts from 70-130ft
The second 130’ Bellissima was launched on behalf of a European owner in La Spezia, a Ferretti Group shipyard dedicated to the production of Riva yachts from 70-130ft. After recently undergoing major expansion and architectural restyling work, the yard now covers more than 39,000sqm, of which 17,000sqm are under cover.
The facility includes three buildings containing 18 assembly stations, plus six equipped for testing. The production site also has a 300-tonne travel lift and two of the largest advanced-technology painting systems in Europe.
The launch also saw the official opening of the new wing of the facility reserved for owner hospitality. Representing a further optimisation of the services offered to guests, it joins 26 yacht berths, with two docks under cover, ensuring optimal conditions for work and delivery to owners in any season.
