The shipyard is reserved for construction of the Ferretti Group's 28-90m in light alloy, steel and fibreglass in CRN, Pershing, Custom Line and Riva.
With a beam of 9m, the steel and aluminium hull was the realisation of Carlo Riva’s dream in the 70s. It is the result of collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, Riva SYD Engineering and Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee.
The 50m Riva has four decks. The master suite on the main deck is preceded by a luxurious VIP cabin. There are another four VIP suites on the lower deck, accommodating a total of 12 people.
The lower deck also houses four cabins for the crew, with the Captain’s cabin on the upper deck. The galley is on the lower deck, ahead of the cold room and storage room, enabling all decks to be served via a convenient dumbwaiter.
The large beach club at the stern is both an area for relaxation as well as a garage capable of accommodating a Williams Dieseljet 625 tender. The bow houses a living area as well as a second garage with a hatch that opens to reveal a rescue boat. At the foredeck, there will be two jet-skis with a carbon davit for easy launching.
The sun deck comes with a Jacuzzi, a sun pad and a generous area for dining and relaxing.
Alberto Galassi, CEO at Ferretti Group, said: “Today was a memorable day for Riva, and we are happy we have started to write a new chapter in our history that began over 100 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 Riva 50m offers a superlative experience, with the mark of comfort, elegance and nautical art-values that have been the hallmark of the brand for the last 175 years. The new superyacht is a naval masterpiece offering superior quality and cutting edge design, incorporating the most innovative technological solutions with an unparalleled sense of elegance and style, to fulfil the expectations of any owner and conquer the sophisticated and demanding taste of future owners of a Riva yacht all around the world.”
