Riva’s 63 Virtus has a galley with Miele appliances, a dining space, and two or three staterooms available belowdecks. The main deck is set up with a barbecue, opposing settees with a foldout table, and a sun pad, with another sun pad on the foredeck for catching rays on the hook.
An electronically operated Bimini top can shelter the forward part of the helm. During our sea trial, twin 1,360 hp V-12 MAN diesels pushed the 63 Virtus to a 38.6-knot top hop.
At press time, three Riva 63 Virtus boats were available, ranging from $1.85 million to $1.95 million.

“It was such a pleasure to find [quality and craftsmanship] coupled with precision performance. Rich fabrics and superb craftsmanship embrace you belowdecks, with generous living space and all the amenities you might require for a sophisticated on-the-water lifestyle. Yes, the Riva express cruiser range has grown in size with this new addition, but she has also grown in stature.”
