A Blue Wonderful gift at Monaco Yacht Club

riva3The Ferretti Group has auctioned a unique Aquariva Super vessel at a charity event at Monaco Yacht Club. The proceeds will go to help the victims of the terrible earthquakes that hit central Italy earlier this year.

The Blue Wonderful colour of the boat was chosen by Sir Elton John, himself a Riva owner. The pop star said: “As a friend of Ferretti Group and Riva owner, I am happy to support the Group’s commitment in helping the populations of those regions… Our hearts go out to those who are still suffering and we are confident that the auction proceeds will contribute to comfort and help for those who need it most.”

Tuesday night’s charity auction was organised by Monaco Boat Service, the exclusive Riva dealer for Monaco and France. The event transformed YCM’s Riva Deck on the 5th floor into a winter wonderland, complete with tress, photos with Santa, crepes stands and animations for children, for what will surely be known as one of the best Christmas parties of the season.
