If a Formula 1 of nautical excellence were ever launched, the Ferretti Group would unquestionably start in pole position. In the meantime, the ties between the Group and the exclusive club of the fastest cars in the world are increasingly close. Part of this is due to the official sponsorship deal that sees the Riva logo displayed on the helmets of the two Ferrari drivers: Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen.
The Group’s yachts are becoming a more and more regular sight at Grands Prix in coastal locations. This was the case in Monte Carlo, where Riva looked out over everyone from the Riva Aquarama Lounge on the first floor of the Yacht Club de Monaco, and will be also true of the final race of the season, in Abu Dhabi.
The Ferretti Group yachts are ready to steal the show from the racing cars, once again shining the spotlight on quintessential Italian know-how and nautical prowess. For the entire race weekend from 23 to 25 November, the following will be available for visits and test sails: Custom Line 120’, Riva 100’ Corsaro, Pershing 82, Riva 76’ Perseo and Riva Aquariva Super.
The grand finale is expected with trepidation in the shape of the now customary and eagerly awaited final evening event for celebrities, guests and owners. Once again, this year, it will be held in the exclusive Cipriani Restaurant, which for the occasion will take on the alluring, legendary appearance of a temporary Riva Lounge. The evening is expected to be characterized by sublime dishes and highly-sophisticated musical entertainment, which will give the event a unique, almost indescribable atmosphere.
