Francesco Frediani
VP Sales & Marketing
23nd of May 2009

Mr. Francesco, why everybody compares Riva to Rolls Royce?
Actually, itís a long story. In 1990, Riva was owned by Vigaís group, and Vigaís group included the Rolls Royce. This should be the main reason. However, all over the years, there was always a combination between the two luxury brands, and the fact that they have some issued items that really distinguished themselves including the timeless design. That is a reason to combine Rolls Royce to Riva Yachts. 

What about this exhibition? What Kind of Riva Boats are exhibited there?
We have quite a different and full range of our boats represented here in Lebanon. Starting with Riva Rama which is our 44 foot, it represents the spirit of Riva. Also we have the 75 foot yacht which is one of our biggest products. This boat is very special and well organized, and that is the reason to be here again and to improve our relationship with Alain, a person able to represent the spirit of Riva and the Ferretti group.

 This privacy includes also the motorization of the Riva yachts or no?
Yes, we pay a lot of attention to our motorization. We also tried to use the best engine available in the market and we combined engine options together with special features including the two speed gear which is something similar to the automatic shift for cars and that we have sold as a standard in AQUARIVA and Riva Rama. 

So, is it like Rolls Royce heavy but fast?
We combined speed with comfort; this is our main target today. 

What was your main goal here in the boat show in Lebanon?
Again, thanks to Alain, our main reason to be here was to present four different Riva models to the Lebanese market which is one of our best potential markets in the region. And with Sea Pro, we are very well represented in Lebanon.
