Dolceriva

The Dolceriva is set to become a new icon of elegance thanks to the fact that it effortless integrates Riva’s three key signatures: a mahogany deck, steel and leather.
This 48’ is characterised by two simple lines running the length of its profile. Its clean, rather severe design has been softened by several innovative aesthetic touches that make it genuinely unique. The most striking of these is the slight reverse-angle of the windshield, a detail that will feature in some of the upcoming Riva models.

Its hull windows look like a deft upward black pencil stroke along its silvery flank. This seemingly simple styling cue is actually the product of complex technical research and produced an innovative and original new hull-deck coupling system.

The Dolceriva also has an unusual rounded stern which, once closed, has a luxury sports car aesthetic in a clever nautical reference to automotive design.
The interiors are equally impressive. Meticulous attention to detail has produced a refined, elegant look characterised by extensive use of natural leather. This is a day boat that can also be used for weekend excursions
