The all-new 88’ Domino Super yacht – the coupé evolution – was proudly unveiled by the iconic Italian shipyard RIVA during the press conference, which took place yesterday, on May 18, 2015 in Monaco. The highly innovative 88’ motor yacht Domino Super Coupé will be officially presented to the international public at the 2015 Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
“The 88’ Domino Super has an equally ambitious and fascinating task,” – explains Ferretti Group’s Chief Commercial Officer, Stefano de Vivo. “The new coupé is much more than simply a restyling. It is the result of a painstaking design process aimed at further improving a very successful model, which can boast a sales record of approximately twenty hulls produced and sold all over the World. The outcome of this process can now be admired on the 88’ Domino Super, as well as the 88’ Florida, which we will be proud to present on the same occasion. These two new models will brighten the Summer season and will be in the spotlight – together with the third new Riva, the 76′ coupé – at the next ‘Cannes Yachting Festival, where they will be presented to the public“.
Setting new standards in the yachting sector in terms of style, comfort and performance, the 26,70m superyacht Domino Super has been superbly penned by Officina Italiana Design and Ferretti Group’s Engineering Department. Featuring a slender, streamlined profile, she boasts a beautiful dark grey hull and a light grey superstructure.
Among many fine design solutions aboard 88’ Domino Super yacht belongs the new sundeck that highlights the sporty character of the vessel, while providing guests with maximum comfort, in addition to the outdoor pilot station that has been moved to the central part of the vessel and has a very limited size, thereby making room for a large sofa at the bow. There is also a large continuous hull glazing, featuring a very aggressive design, which extends across the yacht, almost like an arrow, from the central part of the vessel to the extreme bow.
The stainless steel plate bearing the Riva logo, just in the middle of the glazing, is the ‘seal’ on the 88’ Domino Super yacht, also boasting a fully-restyled aft area that completes the yacht’s dynamic features. The excellent technical equipment and solutions perfectly harmonize with the craft’s sporty look and provide guests with additional comfort, making technical operations extremely easy.
“Dynamism and brightness, to let speed take the guests’ breath away and nature soothe their senses with its beauty. This is what I have in mind when I describe the 88′ Domino Super,” – stated designer Mauro Micheli. “And this first impression is joined by great satisfaction for all the solutions that we, from Officina Italiana Design, and the Riva and Ferretti Group engineers and designers have managed to refine further on an already largely appreciated model. I am referring to the elegant hull shade and the sophisticated light and dark colour contrasts in both the exterior and interior décor, as well as to the interiors, flooded with natural light. All these solutions stir deep emotions in me and I can’t wait to see them ‘live’ in the sea, the yacht’s natural habitat.”
Accommodation aboard super yacht Domino Super can be found on the lower deck. There is an amazingly airy full-beam master stateroom, full of natural light thanks to the two hull windows and the portholes. The three guest cabins, all with en-suite head and separate shower, are very bright thanks to the new hull glazing. The two standard guest cabins are one to the right and one to the left of the lobby – the former has single beds, while the latter is furnished with a sliding double bed. The VIP cabin can be found at the extreme bow, and features a double wardrobe. On this 88’ Domino Super, the crew quarters are located behind the master stateroom, with direct access to the engine room, and include two cabins with bunk beds.
In the standard version, motor yacht Super Domino is powered by twin MTU 16V 2000 M93, 2435 Mhp engines, delivering her a top speed of 38 knots and a cruising speed of 34 knots. As an option, twin MTU 16V 2000 M94, 2638 Mhp engines can be installed instead, pushing the yacht up to 40 knots and ensuring a cruising speed of 35 knots (preliminary data). In order to offer maximum comfort even when the yacht is at anchor, two Seakeeper stabilisers can be installed, if required, aft of the engine.
