Riva's superyacht division takes shape

Riva's superyacht division takes shape

Riva’s dedicated superyacht division is beginning to take shape at the Italian builder’s Ancona based yard. The builder has revealed that engineering and design teams specifically dedicated to the new division have now been established at the shipyard.

Both teams will be working alongside designer Mauro Micheli and Officina Italiana Design, as well as Riva’s sales and marketing department, to develop ongoing projects.

The division will offer two different lines in three sizes; 50 metres, 70 metres and 90 metres. The first line, which has been described as “traditional and timeless”, will draw inspiration from the brand’s heritage, specifically the Carlo Riva motor yachts inspired by the Carvelle line from the 1960s and 70s.

The second line will be characterised by a “sporty” feel and will feature details reminiscent of Riva coupe yachts including the 76 metre Persea and 88 metre Domino Super.

Co-founder of Officina Italian Design Maura Micheli said, “We enthusiastically took on the challenge of creating a new Riva superyacht line which will allow us to prove once more that Italian yacht design can compete on an equal standing with the large North-European shipyards, in terms of both quality and product exclusiveness.”

The first Riva superyacht is already taking shape at the Ancona yard. Developed in collaboration with Officina Italian Design, the 50 metre superyacht will become the flagship of the Riva range when it hits the water next year.

The Riva 50 metre will feature accommodation for 12 guests in five cabins, including a main deck master suite. Other key features include a Jacuzzi on the sun deck, a stern garage with enough room to house a Williams Dieseljet 625 tender and a foredeck storage area suitable for a pair of Jet Skis.

In an innovative move, the galley will be situated on the lower deck, with a central dumb waiter allowing for discreet service to all four decks.
