The Riva 56′ SportRiva is a yacht where Italian elegance and luxury meets innovative design.

“The focus of the 56′ SportRiva’s design is on the huge curved windscreen glass,” Yachting previously reported. “The windscreen panels extend across and up and over the lower helm and what looks like a secondary windscreen above is purely a contrasting decorative panel. The flybridge has its own prominent reverse-angle windscreen that challenges the flowing lines and adds a hint of aggression to the style but you reap the benefits of this screen out at sea when traveling at speed.”

“As far as style goes [Riva’s] are top of the tree; but it’s always matched to innovative design. The SportRiva concept hews to this tradition by combining the best features of sports and flybridge cruisers, delivered with a high level of passion.”

Step aboard Gabriela, a 2012 Riva 56′ SportRiva, and climb the teak ladder steps that lead from the aft deck up to the flybridge. The after section of flybridge has two chaise-style lounge chairs with beige waterproof fabric and backrests, which is perfect for sunbathing on a long cruise. A barefoot-friendly teak sole leads to the helm, which was built large enough to seat three people, allowing guests to feel the breeze and enjoy the 360-degree ocean views with the captain. 

Gabriela is powered by twin MAN V8-900 CRM diesel engines, producing a combined 1,800 horsepower, which will push the vessel up to a max speed of 34 knots.
