Riva calls its new 110 flybridge model Dolcevita, and it certainly epitomises this Italian builder’s ideal of the sweet life at sea. From a strong eld of entries, the judges selected a yacht they felt was the most visually inspiring and one that delivered a strong, cohesive profile consistent with its mission. Clean, spare lines and crisp window shapes up to and including the flybridge windscreen are nicely designed to show off a high contrast exterior colour scheme. The flybridge hardtop, while small, aesthetically and physically suits the profile of a fast yacht, which can hit a top speed of 26 knots and cruise at 23 knots. The yacht also scored well for exterior design practicality enhancing the functionality for owners and guests with such things as a submersible transom, which allows for quick tender launches as well as direct access to the sea. The garage door folds down to create a swim platform that can be lowered further into the water as required.
