Riva’s 88’ Domino Super Sets New Standard For Yachts
The 88’ Domino Super sets new standards for yachts in terms of style, comfort and performance. This yacht immediately strikes the eye for its slender, streamlined profile, which is further highlighted by the color of the hull, a dark grey that has been named ‘London Grey’. Designer Mauro Micheli illustrates, “With dynamism and brightness, this yacht is designed to let speed take the guests’ breath away and nature soothe their senses with its beauty.”
Stylish and Livable Interior
A harmonious blend of wood, leather, and polished stainless steel, further highlighted by the LED lighting system, characterizes the onboard décor, both on the main deck and below deck. Extremely sophisticated solutions can be admired inside: striped rosewood – a dark wood with reddish grains – combines with ‘Ice White’ or dark leather to create impressive contrasts, resulting in a classical, refined elegance that is further enhanced by the natural light shining through the continuous glazing along the sides and the front windshield.
Beyond the glass door, access is gained to the main deck interiors which features a living room, dining room, and the pilot station. The salon is an open space enjoying a magnificent view over the sea – a glaring example of Riva’s unmistakable style.
The living room is furnished with two sofas to portside faced by a third one on the right-hand side, all by Knoll and in ‘White Artic Sea’ leather, combined with decorative cushions by Hermès and Dedar. A steel and dark-leather coffee table completes the furnishing.
Walking further, the dining area is located on the left with a large glass and leather table featuring a section that can slide towards the center, thereby allowing up to 8 people to enjoy a pleasant meal sitting on the ‘Donald’ leather chairs by Poltrona Frau.
A first flight of stairs allows reaching the lobby, which leads forward to the three guest cabins. A door opens onto a second series of steps taking to the full-beam master stateroom. This very airy cabin, which benefits from plenty of natural light thanks to the two hull windows and the portholes, is furnished with a low cabinet and a desk/vanity set to starboard. The furniture includes other freestanding units that can be chosen by the owner. The double bed, on the left-hand side, is in front of the wall-mounted TV screen. Behind the cabin, across an access room, are the owner’s bathroom and the large walk-in wardrobe, which is completed by two additional wardrobe modules, one in the access room and the other one forward.
The owner’s bathroom, characterized by innovative design and décor solutions, features two Capannoli washbasins, fitted with Ritmonio taps, standing in front of the toilet. The shower can be found to portside; it is separated from the rest of the bathroom by a glass door and has shiny black walls and a white Corian floor.
The three guest cabins – all with ensuite head and separate shower – are very bright thanks to the new hull glazing. The two standard guest cabins are one to the right and one to the left of the lobby – the former has single beds, while the latter is furnished with a sliding double bed. The VIP cabin is located at the extreme bow, and features a double wardrobe.
Crew quarters are located behind the master stateroom and have direct access to the engine room, and include two cabins with bunk beds; an ‘in-column’ washing machine and, upon request, tumble dryer; the galley area, opposite the dinette; and the head.
Expressing Luxury Performance
The 88’ Domino Super’s sporty DNA is expressed to the fullest by the new sundeck. A large C-shaped dinette, forward, can be found in front of the outdoor pilot and control station, whose new position, in the central part of the boat, ensures the best possible yacht management. Large relaxation areas can be found aft, featuring a spacious central sun pad. More space is available on the deckhouse, at the bow, where guests can enjoy the utmost privacy sitting at the dining table in the dinette facing forward or relaxing on the large central sun pad.
The new Riva coupé yacht boasts performance values at the top of its class. In the standard version, the yacht is equipped with two MTU 16V 2000, 2435 Mhp engines, allowing it to reach a maximum speed of 38 knots and a cruising speed of 34 knots. As an option, two MTU 16V 2000, 2638 Mhp engines can be installed instead, pushing the yacht up to 40 knots and ensuring a cruising speed of 35 knots.
