Ribelle 66 was the boat of 2018 Riva Yacht, the historic shipyard in Sarnico, now part of the Ferretti Group.

The Rebel already in the name suggests his intent not to be a conventional boat. The 66′ long boat, about 20 meters long, made its debut in Cannes in 2018 after a design and construction work that took place in Sarnico.

The reference to the past of the Rebel

The Riva 66′ Rebel is a sportfly, the entry level model in the range, which completes the other two models: 76′ Perseo and 88′ Domino Super. The hull of the Rebel has been designed according to the boat with a modern taste and the line with the range of large Riva yachts. So what about the past? It’s not the lines, but the details you have to look at: the shiny mahogany, the trademark of all the Riva classics, has been used both inside and outside the boat. A very interesting and elegant effect in the contrast between the wood and the dark blue of the boat.

A bright sporty

The large windows both in the superstructure and in the hull make the interior very bright and livable. The best point to enjoy the boat is, however, undoubtedly the fly bridge where you can maneuver the boat with a 360 ° view of the sea or sunbathe comfortably on the sofas. Another “privileged” point is the stern with extendable mahogany table, always recalling the old Riva. On board there are 3 cabins for owner and guests and one for the crew aft, where there is also the tender garage.

A great “day cruiser”

A sporty motorboat in the shape of a large yacht that demonstrates the day cruiser vocation of the first Riva yachts in its performance and autonomy, like our beloved Med Boat. Dual MAN engines for a total of 1550 horsepower that allow this 20-metre yacht to navigate at 33 cruising knots and 37 maximum knots with 250 nautical miles of autonomy.

66′ Ribelle is the result of the collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the Strategic Product Committee and the Engineering Ferretti Group Management, and will be built at the historic shipyard in Sarnico.
