Riva has long been the undisputed master of the glamorous open-top sports cruiser, and the latest Riva 56 Rivale is a classic, taking the super-luxury GT cruising concept to another level. The hugely successful 52 Rivale that it replaces was always going to be a very hard act to follow, but Riva’s brilliant designers have exceeded all expectations with this new model.
To some, the Riva 56 Rivale will no doubt be simply a magnificent dayboat. But anyone looking to spend more time on board will find her to be a superbly comfortable cruiser, with a lavish owner's suite amidships, there's a choice of either two further cabins, or just one plus a crew cabin. And all finished in that inimitable Riva style, elegant perfection in every detail.View Gallery
In the great tradition of Riva, the profile and styling of the Riva 56 Rivale are nothing short of ravishing. Her huge and very classy cockpit offers sumptuous seating and loungers for at least a dozen people, with a powered bimini to provide shade when you need it. The bathing platform can be raised and lowered at the touch of a button. The hidden steps onto the stern platform are a neat touch, magically revealing themselves on command!View Gallery
If you love the sensation of driving a sportsboat, but need a cruising boat or just something bigger, then the Riva 56 Rivale is the perfect solution.
