After all, it was natural. From favourite boat of stars, actors and film directors in several film scenes and their private lives, Riva – the Italian brand universally recognized as the symbol of luxury and glamour – conquers its participation to the world’s most famous film festival.
A Riva “temporary lounge” will be, in fact, opened for the entire duration of the event at the Hotel Excelsior. VIPs, actors and directors will be able to give interviews in this exclusive location which, in its turn, will be furnished with exclusive décor from the Riva Brand Experience. For some time, the artisan quality of the shipyard has indeed given birth to an exclusive product line which demonstrates the extreme care and attention to materials and details that the shipyard dedicates to all its creations.
Equally inevitable is the choice of the boat stars will use for the event. A wonderful Aquariva will in fact accompany VIPs in all their photo shootings and side events of the festival. She will be the official luxury “courtesy boat” of the festival. Considering its great appeal to photographers, we’re sure that stars will really fight to have her and come on board one of the most beautiful and most famous boats in the world.
Of course, one among the most desirable routes will be that from Hotel Excelsior to the historic Gritti Palace where the glamourous Bar Longhi represents a sort of open-air ideal extension of the famous meeting spot. For some years, the terrace of the Bar Longhi overlooking the Grand Canal has been hosting another Riva Lounge which provides a chance for visitors to fully immerse themselves in the exclusive refined Riva Yacht‘s world.
Furthermore, the Gritti Palace has been hosting another Aquariva for some years. Named “The Dodge“, this unique Aquariva Super has been totally customized for the Gritti Palace; power comes from a couple of YANMAR 8LV 370 HP engines that deliver a top speed of 41.5 knots.
So, what is delighting visitors these days is a glamourous Riva-branded Venice that offers one more reason to join the movie festival.
