THE AMERICAN PREMIÈRE OF FERRETTI GROUP AT PALM BEACH:
RIVA 90’ ARGO
90’ Argo is the latest fantastic Riva flybridge. With a length of 28.49 metres (93’6’’) and a beam of 6.50 metres (21’4’’), the Riva 90’ Argo combines and enhances the strengths of its two Riva predecessors, the 100’ Corsaro and 110’ Dolcevita. Born from the partnership between Officina Italiana Design (the studio founded by designer Mauro Micheli together with Sergio Beretta) and the Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and Engineering Department, the new flybridge stands out for the large hull windows, the long, full-height glazed windows on the deck and the aft lateral structures with glass surfaces at the stern, which further enhance the aerodynamics of the profile.
The new creation by Pershing stands out for its sporty, streamlined lines, combined with unsurpassed standards of quality and innovation. With a length of 25.55 metres and a beam of 5,86 metres, Pershing 8X is the result of the collaboration between the architect Fulvio De Simoni, Ferretti Group Strategic Product Committee and the Engineering Department. Made of carbon fiber, Pershing 8X is revolutionary from a stylistic-functional point of view as well as from a performance one. The sport-fly, in fact, guarantees not only lightness and increased speed, but also greater comfort on board, thanks to larger, more welcoming spaces.
