Riva presents the new Riva Iseo
July 14, 2011: Riva, the iconic Ferretti Group brand, has presented a new model featuring elegance and ease of transportation as her distinctive characteristics. The Riva Iseo, a 27 foot runabout, is destined to become a must-have for those who love cruising on both lakes and the sea.
The new model has been devised in a way so that owners can ‘live’ their yacht wherever they wish. Therefore, the standard version of Riva Iseo has her own custom-made car-trailer, allowing easy transportation wherever the owner wishes to go.
Soft, clean-cut lines, thorough space-planning, careful attention to detail and the use of highly sophisticated materials are the characteristics which make the new Riva Iseo. The optional version of Riva Iseo will be available with a sundeck, sofas, dashboard and driving seat all branded Poltrona Frau.
Riva Iseo values the surrounding environment and therefore the yacht will also be available in a hybrid engine version with the ZEM (Zero Emission Mode) cruising option - Ferretti Group’s revolutionary cruising mode system - particularly suitable for lakes, especially where normal boating is forbidden.
Due to her ease of manoeuvrability and size, Riva Iseo is also ideal as a tender for large yachts. Innovative and elegant, she can guarantee comfort in bad weather conditions. Besides the electrohydraulic bimini top, the Iseo was designed with a waterproof, automobile-style soft top which protects those on board against water and the wind during cruising.
Responding to an increasing demand for on-board infotainment, Riva Iseo is the first yacht of its kind to be equipped with both infotainment and GPS charts built for the Apple platform for iPad. This software has been specifically designed for Riva Iseo and features a number of interesting applications, such as browsing the Riva Iseo owner manual, viewing the weather forecast and other information, as well as listening to live stream radio, TV or one’s own playlists with high quality sound.
Riva Iseo is fitted with a Yanmar 6BY2 260, 260mhp engine and a Yanmar 370 duoprop ZT370 stern drive, which drives the yacht to a top speed of 36 knots. Alternatively, the optional version features a Yanmar 320mhp engine and Yanmar 370 duoprop ZT370 stern drive, providing a top speed of 40 knots. In the gasoline version, Riva Iseo is equipped with a Mercruiser 8.2 MAG 279kW 380 mph 4800 g/m engine and Mercruiser Bravo Three X stern drive, providing a top speed of 42 knots. Riva Iseo will also be available with a hybrid engine.
