In Association with: Riva


The allure of the Riva name is undisputed: a legend of our time in the yachting world, it is a name synonymous with design and style. Riva has always been successful in renewing itself while preserving its core identity; remaining true to the past while investing in stylistic and technological innovation, and paving the way for enduring success.

Riva has developed a vast and diversified series of composite yachts in a few years, ranging from 27 to over 110 feet. In March 2019, the brand will return into the superyacht segment with the launch of the Riva 50 metres at our shipyard in Ancona. This yacht will be the first born of the Riva “Superyachts Division”, dedicated to the production of superyachts from 50 up to 90 metres long. The dream of a Riva superyacht in lightweight alloy and with a displacement hull is the legacy of Carlo Riva’s ambition and inventive drive to go beyond all limits and build the celebrated superyachts between the 1960s and late 1970s.

Riva is proudly supporting the Superyacht Design Symposium 2019 for the first time in association with Boat International Media, deeply committing into the development of future projects in superyacht design.

In Association with/Ski Cup Partner: Perini Navi


Perini Navi has been, for over thirty years, a worldwide leader in the design and construction of sailing and motor yachts. Over 60 per cent of the world's fleet of sailing yachts over 40m has been built by Perini Navi.

Perini Navi was founded in 1983 with Fabio Perini's first prototype of what would prove to be the most successful series of large sailing yachts in the world. It all started with a new vision of sailing: a vision of large yachts with ample living spaces and single handed handling. Originally located in Viareggio, Perini Navi expanded first in La Spezia, acquiring the Picchiotti shipyard, a pioneer in the design and build of luxury motor cruisers, and then in Tuzla, Istanbul. Its three state-of-the-art facilities have become synonym for quality and seaworthiness.

Perini Navi USA was established in Newport, Rhode Island, dedicated to brokerage and charter services for Perini Navi yachts, with the aim of providing a seamless point of contact for prospective buyers, and an unparalleled service.

In 2017 Faper Group, founded by Mr. Fabio Perini, opened the share capital of Perini Navi to a new investor: Fenix Sri. The entry of Fenix has paved the way for many new developments in Perini Navi.

One Brand, One Company

Since Autumn 2017 Perini Navi has merged its two brands into one. The group's motor-yachts, previously built under the Picchiotti name, will all fly the same flag as their sister sailing yachts and will all be sold, built and sailed with the Perini Navi logo.


The Perini Navi fleet consists of 62 yachts, 59 sailing and three motor yachts, with a dynamic range that varies in size from the 25m Elettra to the 88m Maltese Falcon.
