Rivale 56

You just have to look at a Riva to know exactly why they're seen as one of the best. Their latest build is an open-top 56-footer called the Rivale and it's what we would imagine a Rolls-Royce Drophead would look like in yacht form. The Rivale 56 features a cockpit wrapped in a striking glass windshield that perfectly complements the fast lines of the "Shark Grey" exterior.

 Of course, you'll find a extensive list of high-end materials such as carbon fiber, immaculately-finished stainless steel, high gloss mahogany, and natural teak. Inside, the Rivale is decorated with Ivano Redaelli-upholstered furniture, Van Besouw carpeting, two cabins, and a lounge-dinette. Power will come from twin 1000 or twin 1200 HP MAN engines, which will allow for a cruising speed of up to 40 mph with the top-end engine option.
