With the awards Yacht of the Year, magazines have once again chosen the best small yachts. We show the winners of 2021.
Riva 88 Folgore
One of the most exciting new products to be presented this late summer is the Riva 88 Folgore. The yacht has a SciFi look, according to the shipyard’s marketing idea, which a little less cryptically could be described as sporty, and a clarity that is missing in many designs these days. With the large machines, the Italian reaches a top speed of 38 knots and can accommodate up to eight guests in four cabins on the lower deck. Combined with the reputation of the brand, the Folgore seems to be a great opportunity in the Riva portfolio.
In the new 500, Ferretti Yachts offer all their expert knowledge with unmistakable elegance. Ferretti Yachts knows that boat owners today demand ease of use and a high level of comfort from their yacht, regardless of size and class. You want a reliable, easy-to-steer boat with safe, convenient access to the water and lots of space. And the whole thing should also look elegant.
With this requirements for the first model of the new series, Ferretti turned to Salvetti for the sporty exterior of the yacht and Ideaitalia for the cozy interior. The order was: a family-friendly 50 flybridge yacht that, with all the usual flexibility of home, does not miss the certain touch of seafaring adventure. The FY 500 is proof that this seemingly insoluble contradiction can be transformed into a great whole with careful planning and a strong sense of style and flair.
The latest version of the Bluegame yachts gives a special appearance with a lot of comfort and technology. They are already something different and unique in terms of design. The Bluegame BGX 60 is designed by L.Santella. You enter the boat from behind and stand in the cockpit that is open to the aft. The shipyard accommodates the wet bar, dinghy crane, free-standing sun loungers and an auto gangway that can also be used as a bathing ladder. Further to the front there is a large glass front, the parts of which can be pushed over one another, and what you can see behind it is a top-quality aft saloon. Access is down a short flight of stairs from the deck. Sitting in this room and looking aft, you get the feeling of floating on the surface of the water. But that’s not all, a few more steps forward and you enter the cabin.
