The very first 50-metre vessel in Riva’s Superyacht Division is making progress at the Italian yard’s facilities in Ancona. Developed in collaboration with Officina Italiana Design, the four decked yacht accommodates up to 12 guests on board across a large main deck master suite in addition to five VIP cabins.
Announced at the 2014 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show following the launch of the brand’s first true superyacht, the 122 Mythos Sol, the Riva Superyacht Division is a fully custom series with two lines. The first focuses on the Riva brand’s history, drawing inspiration from Gentleman’s classics such as the Caravelle. The second sporty line features details reminiscent of the last generation of Riva coupe yachts, such as the Perseo and Domino Super. Each of the two lines are available in four size ranges: 50, 60, 70 and 90-metres.
Alberto Galassi, CEO of Ferretti Group comments: “We are happy we have started to write a new chapter in our history that began over a hundred years ago. I am proud to be leading a group of true professionals who are turning the dream of Carlo Riva into something tangible. We took up his idea for an ambitious and adventurous feat of engineering and focused on building this magnificent fleet of superyachts in steel.”
The first 50-metre vessel will be launched in 2018.
