Lee Marine - Riva 68 Ego Super
The harmony of shape and elegance of space on the 68' Ego Super - highlighted by the contrast between the anthracite coloured hull and desert sand coloured superstructure - have been matched by means of a careful, in-depth study of each and every detail and solution. In keeping with Riva tradition, the results are extremely elegant and highly innovative.
The new version of this coupé: is the result of the working relationship between Officina Italiana Design, the exclusive designer of all the yachts in the Riva range, AYT - Advanced Yacht Technology - Ferretti Group's naval research and design centre and the team of architects and designers of Centro Stile Ferrettigroup.
In the cockpit, the reclining sofa enables those aboard to sit in two positions, facing either the stern or the salon; a teak table and another large sofa can accommodate up to six people, creating an open-air salon. This new relaxation area can also be protected against the sun's rays by means of an innovative, electric awning. Closing the cockpit off with a glass door ensures Owners and their guests complete privacy in the living area. The lower deck is accessed by means of a central stairway located under the windshield which leads to an open space area comprising a salon and the well-equipped galley.
The large windows, light colours of the oak and the ivory-coloured upholstery means the cabins are particularly well-lit. The lacquering, which takes up the Desert Sand colour of the deck, and the dark brown coloured leather inserts create a pleasant colour scheme which gives the environment movement and softness.
The great innovation is a large window in the hull set next to the full-beam Master cabin, located astern. This new style solution ensures considerable amounts of natural lighting and offers an unusual, extremely pleasant view from the surface of the water whilst cruising.
Both the Master cabin astern and the VIP cabin at bow have en-suite heads and were built following ergonomic studies to optimise the space available to the utmost. The guest cabin has twin beds and direct access to the day head located amidships starboard. Astern, with direct access from the cockpit, there is an independent crew cabin with en-suite head.
The attention paid to technology, a feature which has accompanied Riva yachts from the shipyard's very origins, can also be found in the on-board systems. 68' Ego Super is, in fact, equipped with the PLC technology-based Gi8, which is applied to the entire set of on-board systems, and controls, manages and monitors all the services.
68' Ego Super is equipped with two MTU 10V 2000 M 94 engines, power 1623 mhp, delivering a maximum speed of 39 knots and a cruise speed of 35 knots.
