Cannes has always been one of the standout summer hotspots for those looking to combine world-class hotels, boutique shopping and gastronomic excellence. Cannes has dazzled so many people and brought such fond memories that visitors continue to come back every summer. If you take a step back from the Croisette, you will see a bustling town full of passion, fascinating architecture and tradition, as well as some of the finest yachts in the world!
The Antibes Yacht Show kicked off yesterday on the very sunny French Riviera. The show this year sees the attendance of some our favourites – from DEVOCEAN to AVELLA and more! The highlight of our show was finally getting to see the very exciting and highly reputable Riva Domino 86 RHINO. We saw RHINO around the French Riviera last summer, ever-popular on charter she regularly frequented the hottest spots of Cannes, Monaco and St Tropez.
Spanish sundowners last night provided excellent refreshment on a beautiful evening in Port Vauban, Antibes. The boat itself feels large beyond its size with huge outside space at the rear, flybridge and dining on the bow. She’s highly specced with beautiful tan leather upholsteries outside, sumptuous tweed soft furnishings in the cabins and a full-beam master suite which offers space otherwise never found on yachts of this size.
RHINO is the most stylish yacht around. Her calendar for this season is starting to fill so we highly recommend ceasing this opportunity to charter this one-of-a-kind yacht! Contact our team in Cannes today for more information.
RIVA is one of the oldest and best known names in yachting!
Carlo Riva’s most famous creation is without doubt the RIVA Aquarama. Famous for its speed, beautiful appearance and craftsmanship, the RIVA Aquarama quickly became known as the Ferrari of the boat world, a symbol of wealth on the fashionable French Riviera during the 1960s, 70s and 80s. However it was another giant of the Italian motor industry that first teamed up with RIVA in the 1960s when Ferruccio Lamborghini commissioned a custom Aquarama for himself. This amazing boat was fitted with twin 4.0 litre V 12 engines taken directly from a Lamborghini 350 GT, each producing 350hp giving a top speed of 48 knots! LAMBORGHINI was finally delivered to Ferrucio in 1968.
After Ferrucio’s death in 1993, the boat was left untouched for many years until recently when a Dutch collector tracked it down and asked the team at Riva World to restore her to the great working condition she had been in for decades previously. The results are truly astounding! As the video below shows, LAMBORGHINI is looking as good as she ever has. Three years of hard work and devotion from the highly skilled team at Riva World, led by Sandro Zani, has led to the resurrection of a masterpiece of engineering.
At Boatbookings.com, we have an appreciation of both the old and new. We take pride in matching our clients to the best yacht for them, whether that be an ultra modern super yachtsuch as M OCEAN or a classic sailing yacht like the BLUE PETER.
