Revealed at the historic Arsenale of Venice
It is called “Race” and is 50 meters long for a maximum beam of 9 meters. It is the first model of the Riva Superyachts Division, which triumphed in all its glory in the marvelous setting of the Venice Arsenal last June 15th, during a world premiere.
Riva 50 meters is a dream come true and 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 50 meters has fascinated the public with her aesthetics, style and innovation. Ship owners 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 50 meters 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.” – commented Alberto Galassi, CEO of Ferretti Group.
