Winners Revealed for the 2020 BOAT International Design and Innovation Awards

1 of 19 1/19

Outstanding Exterior Design Motor Yachts – 24m to 49.9m


Length: 49.9m

Exterior stylist: Officina Italiana Design

Naval architecture: Riva

Builder: Riva

The task for the design and build team behind Riva’s flagship Race was to combine the beauty typical of the Riva brand with the functionality of a superyacht and incorporate the owner’s demand for an all-round experience of the sea and an uninterrupted view of the coast or horizon. Designers Officina Italiana Design incorporated Carlo Riva’s classic Riva design language, which includes trademark materials such as stainless steel details and varnished mahogany handrails, along with a balanced and appealing profile. The decks are defined by strong horizontal lines and masculine angles, unlike the feminine curves of many of her Riva predecessors. Although the 120m² sundeck sports a substantial hardtop for shaded al fresco dining, there are naturally a lot of sunning spaces, including a walkaround bridge deck and forward seating area plus an elegant cockpit at the bow. The built-in exterior furniture is crisp and neat – inkeeping with the yacht’s lines – and covered in the consistent dark mahogany veneer. Race narrowly edged out another Italian builder, Pershing, and its flagship 14 Chorusline, which the judges noted had several bold and innovative styling features.
