Riva's has unveiled more renderings of its 50-metre project, which will form a key part of the historic yard's Superyachts Division
The first offerings from the Superyachts Division will be in two distinct lines using the same platforms and both drawing inspiration from Riva’s rich heritage. A sporty line will feature styling cues from Riva coupé yachts, with an aggressive profile, while the second takes its inspiration from the Caravelle, which Riva built in 1964. The yachts will be built at 50, 60, 70 and 90 metres LOA.
The 50M renderings are the work of designer Mauro Micheli and Officina Italiana Design, along with the Riva team. “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 Northern European shipyards in terms of quality and product exclusiveness,” says Mauro Micheli.
“At Riva there are values and design philosophies that go beyond commercial strategies. Among these is the inclination to ‘think bigger’. The Superyachts Division is successfully heading in this direction, not only because it represents an extraordinary leap into the future, but also because, by offering two different lines, Riva will once more be able to meet the refined and sophisticated taste of its very demanding owners,” says Ferretti Group’s CEO Alberto Galassi.
