FrontRunners: SportRiva

    Debuted in the United States at February’s Miami International Boat Show, the SportRiva 56' (www.riva-yacht.com) incorporates an elegant flybridge into a curvy, express-cruiser-like exterior. The boat (price upon request) is the first model in Riva’s SportRiva series and represents what designer Mauro Micheli describes as the Italian company’s "sportfly" rel="nofollow" concept, which is geared toward owners who like the open look of an express but desire the comfort and climate control of an enclosed salon.

    To allow plenty of natural light into the contemporary interiors of the 56', Micheli devised a fluid bank of windows that surrounds the salon, as well as oversize portholes for the below-deck master stateroom. A staff cabin connects directly to the main galley, providing a discreet passage for crew members and affording considerable privacy on the 56-foot boat.
