Construction is set to begin in 2015 for the new megayachts by Riva, the iconic motorboat brand that is a member of the Ferretti Group. The new giant line will feature yachts measuring from 50m to 100m.
Launching of the new line is in keeping with the vision of founder Carlo Riva’s vision. Riva’s largest yacht to date is the 122-foot Mythos, launched this summer. Construction of the new line will dwarf that yacht, beginning with the 50m M/Y Riva, starting next year, followed by construction of a 68m yacht and eventually leading up to a 100m model.
In a press conference at the Monaco Yacht how, Albert Galassi, Ferretti Group CEO indicated that Riva is ready to become a leader in this section of the yachting market and follow Carlo Riva’s ideas.
The first model is expected to bring the marque’s classic styling to a larger hull. Officina Italiana Design will be responsible for the exterior. Key features in the bespoke layout design on the four-deck ship include an outdoor dinette in the bow behind the tender and jet-ski garage, a Jacuzzi sundeck along with an aft deck beach club and a 6m float-in tender garage. Interior features are expected to include walk-in wardrobes and full-size dining tables. Cabins will accommodate up to 12 guests and a crew of nine.
Twin CAT C32 or MAN D2382 LE 466 engines will power the new Riva, with an estimated cruising speed of 14 knots and top speed of 15 knots. Range is expected to be 3,800nm, allowing for extensive exploration. Zero-speed stabilizing fins will keep decks level even at anchor.
