52’ Rivale Palm Beach
52’ Rivale Palm Beach (special edition for US)
Of all the members of the Riva family, this is the yacht whose character, as its name suggests, is the most strong and heroic. Indeed, the Rivale’s refined wood and quality textiles give its unique, sharp lines a welcoming feel. The interior design features large cabins, a comfortable dining-area and a cockpit which satisfies all demands for outdoor living, as well as one of the largest garages (which stores a 3.2 meter tender) in its category.
For 2009, Riva has created a version of the boat dedicated specifically to the American market, using special materials and colors elegantly fused into an even more precious example of the Rivale, whose name refers to one of the most exclusive American beach locations: Palm Beach.
The Rivale Palm Beach was created as the ultimate answer to the desires of the American owner: a boat offering plenty of style and elegance without sacrificing comfort. The boat’s deck and hull, in brand-new desert sand, are very special in this version thanks to the Roman bronze details on the dashboard and on the signal mast. This unique design evokes the image of a shark’s flipper. Inside the cabins, the walls and furniture are made of luminous elm, embellished with topstitched natural-color leather, which produces a chromatic opposition of soft and dark against the Roman Bronze lacquering.
This unrivaled yacht is the clear choice for owners who wish to enjoy living an adventurous life at sea in utter comfort and privacy, taking full advantage of the craft’s signature reliability and usability. The Rivale sustains the Riva yacht philosophy: personality, style, elegance and constant innovation. The size of the yacht permits the owner to man and enjoy his craft firsthand, granting also enough space for two more guest cabins equipped with twin beds and a day head in addition to the master cabin, located at the bow with an en suite bathroom.
The Rivale is equipped with two 1100-horsepower Man engines, and gives an exceptionally spirited performance: a top speed of 40 knots and an autonomy of 260 miles at cruising speed (in the 1100 horsepower version).
