Riva 50m Makes Its Debut
It is called Race and is 50m long for a maximum beam of nine meters. It is the first model of the Riva Superyachts Division, which triumphed in all its glory in the marvellous setting of the Venice Arsenal last 15 June, during a suggestive world premiere.
Majestic and elegant, Riva 50m is a dream come true, the worthy heir of the famous M/ Y series Caravelle and Atlantic, the large steel yachts built between the 60s and 70s by the visionary genius and ambitious of Carlo Riva. The first Riva 50m has fascinated the public with its unparalleled standards of aesthetics, style and innovation. Shipowners from all over the world took part in a magnificent evening opened by a refined dinner by Massimo Bottura, followed by a gala reception culminating in Riva’s 50m unveiling, a true nautical artwork in the open-air museum of the Venetian lagoon.
“The largest Riva, the dream of Carlo Riva that came true, a boat of immense beauty, could only make its debut at the Arsenale, which has been for centuries the largest naval factory in the world. The dreams, the skill and the talent that inhabited this space are the same ones that have animated the Riva myth in 177 years of history, up to the birth of this incredible mega yacht. Today, in the eyes of our guests and enthusiasts, I saw the sincere emotion which is for Ferretti Group, and in particular for the Riva Superyachts Division, the most authentic gratification, a love at first sight”, comments Alberto Galassi, CEO of Ferretti Group.
The latest Riva masterpiece perfectly combines the Made in Italy aesthetic with the unmistakable personality of the brand: the wider volumes of the hull are combined with a clean and elegant profile that leaves you breathless. Comfort, style, attention to detail and the application of the most advanced technological solutions offer an unparalleled navigation experience. Riva 50m is the result of the collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the studio founded by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta, who exclusively designs the entire Riva range, and the engineering team dedicated to designing the new Riva super yachts with the Ferretti Group Product Strategic Committee.
