Sarnico, 16th May 2012 – Riva, a brand of the Ferretti Group, received the prestigious “Best Production Motor Yacht” award in the category between 15m and 24m during the Asian Boating Awards, which were held in Hong Kong at the opening of the 2012 Gold Coast Boat Show, last weekend in Hong Kong.

Organised for the first time in 2005 by the "Asia-Pacific Boating” and “China Boating” magazines in 2005, the Asian Boating Awards celebrate every year the best Asian and worldwide boating industry production. The “Riva 75’ Venere Super” received this prestigious award during the gala reception held in the magnificent Ballroom of the Hong Kong Grand Hyatt Hotel.

The award was collected on behalf of Riva and the Ferretti Group by Daniell Chen, Chief Representative of Ferretti Group Asia Regional Office.

The 75’ Venere Super is a restyling of one of Riva’s most widely appreciated models.
Its interiors and exteriors have been entirely renovated to offer more comfort when cruising and optimising onboard space. The yacht is the result of the cooperation between the designers of OID - Officina Italiana Design (the design firm that exclusively designs all Riva yachts), AYT - Advanced Yacht Technology (Ferretti Group’s research and naval design centre), and the team of architects and designers of the Centro Stile Ferrettigroup.
The 75’ Venere Super stands out for its unmistakable style, luxury, fine materials, and utmost care for the tiniest details – all features that have always characterised Riva’s exclusive production, making Riva a true icon in the international boating and luxury sectors.

This important acknowledgement of the 75’ Venere Super represents yet another success for Riva at an international level, in the year when the brand is celebrating its 170th anniversary, and following the award received in London by another “family jewel”, the Iseo, which was elected “Motor Boat of the Year 2012” in the “Performance & Superboats” category.
