The 90-foot yacht is the latest addition to the new-generation Riva flybridge range and complements the highly successful Riva 100’ Corsaro and the Riva 110’ Dolcevita. The new yacht combines and reinforces the unique selling points of its predecessors, with particular emphasis on the exterior styling distinguished by a sleek and dynamic profile and the generous use of glass for the hull-mounted windows, from the stern to the wide-body owner's suite on the main deck and on the raised pilothouse.
The Ferretti Group has named the yacht, 90 Argo.The name of model, which will inherit the streamlined profile and large, carbon fibre-framed windows of the Riva 100 Corsaro and the Riva 110 Dolcevita, has its roots in Greek history.
Key features include a generously sized superyacht sundeck and a wide-body owner’s cabin situated on the main deck. Aft, the Riva 90 will inherit the concealed stairway system from the Riva 56 Rivale, while the tender garage is large enough to accommodate and independently launch a Williams 395 and a Jet Ski. “The Riva 90 is a very sleek, slender boat despite being quite large, volume-wise. Its lines are balanced, sporty and elegant, brilliantly epitomising the Riva DNA. There is a real sense of stylistic coherency between the interiors and exteriors.”
Three engine options from MTU will be made available, ranging from twin 1,921hp 12V2000 M96Ls to a pair of 2,400hp 16V2000 M93 engines - the latter will be installed on hull number one. The result is speeds of up to 30 knots out on the open water as well as a wide range of cruising speeds from 22 to 26 knots. Likewise a wide range of layouts will be offered, with the option to fit up to five guest cabins onto the lower deck.
