THE 3 NEW MODELS PRESENTED AT BOOT 2013:
Itama 45' is the natural evolution of the well-known Itama Forty, before that the famous Itama 38', i.e. the model that made the history of Italian open yachts. Designed by architect Marco Casali, working closely with the AYTD – Advanced Yacht Technology & Design, this yacht is over 13 metres in length and best represents the brand's DNA: timeless charm, a sporty soul, unmistakable Italian style and direct contact with the sea are the main features of this yacht. Her soaring, essential lines are typical to Itama, and she features the customary 22° deep V-shaped hull which guarantees unparalleled seaworthiness, also due to the drive of twin 480hp Cummins engines. Brand new addition to this model is the retractable telescopic gangway, integrated in the hull, built into the hull, and the stern swimming platform which lowers into the water to launch and haul in the tender. Added value of the Itama 45' is the new stern, in which the inclination of the mirror has been altered in order to create a more dynamic external line, without, however, forgoing the formal values of the past. Moreover, a large, practical locker has been made in this space for the water toys and shower, which can now be used more easily. The layout of the 45' adapts to the requirements of each individual owner, offering a range of solutions in terms of reliability: indeed, it is available with one or two guest cabins, whilst the master cabin is located at bow as always. The layout of the head has also been changed compared with the first version of this model and rotated 90°.
RIVARAMA SUPER - RIVA
The 44 foot Rivarama Super inherits from the original model, which was nominated the Best European Open in the 40 to 60 foot category two years' running, the natural elegance and comfort which gave her the nickname "floating suite", but enriched with new details. Developed through the work of Officina Italiana Design, the studio which exclusively designs all the yachts in the Riva range in association with the AYTD – Advanced Yacht Technology and Design, the Ferretti Group's research, nautical development and design centre, and the team of architects and designers at Centro Stile Ferrettigroup, she features classical lines and extensive use of wood, even on the deck, which is completely clad in mahogany. Conceived as a yacht for couples, Rivarama Super features a master cabin, at bow offering all the comforts of a 5 star hotel, including a unique quick chill system for a bottle of champagne and two flutes. The materials of the interiors have been renewed completely, with furniture and walls in matt painted oak, enhanced with the use of mahogany coloured leather and tone on tone stitching in the table column, the bed runaround and headboard.
Painstaking attention has also been paid to the accessories: indeed, as provided for in the standard supply, the yacht is fitted out with a leather bag - redesigned and produced exclusively for Riva in hand-sewn leather matching the cladding - designed to be housed in the spacious drawer under the master cabin bed. Rivarama Super is equipped with twin 800mph MAN R6 CR engines, which drive the yacht to a top speed of 41 knots and a cruise speed of 36.
DOLPHIN 74' CRUISER – MOCHI CRAFT
Sketched out by Architect Brunello Acampora from Studio Victory Design in association with Norberto Ferretti and the AYTD - Advanced Yacht Technology&Design - Dolphin 74' Cruiser brings together all the experience built up by Mochi Craft in inventing the Italian-style Lobster Boat, creating a new generation lobster boat which maintains Mochi Craft's elegance and style whilst introducing innovative, functional solutions. The flagship of the brand combines the elegant, high performance features of the Deep V-shaped hull with variable geometry
and an average deadrise of 19° with sprayrails - with the typically maritime taste of the interiors, in which the warm, golden shades of solid teak prevail. The refined cleats, milled with artisan skill from a single block of steel, and six colours in which the hull is available, confirm a strong vocation for uniqueness. The Dolphin 74' Cruiser stands out for her unparalleled, innovative features which were previously unknown to the Lobster segment: the flybridge extends to cover the cockpit and features new open-air spaces, harmonising with the elegant lines of the Dolphin models; the main deck is split into two separate areas, lounging and dining; a large galley is completely isolated and provides access to the crew quarters, enabling the staff to move freely around the yacht whilst respecting the owner's privacy. The garage can house both a 350cm jet tender and a jet ski. Opening the hatch creates another aft area, swimming platform and sundeck. The master cabin is on the lower deck in complete privacy: 21m² full-beam and in the centre of the yacht to guarantee complete comfort, stability and silence. Two large windows overlooking the water and portholes that can be opened naturally light up the interiors; the three guest cabins are located towards bow, all with en-suite heads.
