Riva, a member of the Ferretti Group, has announced the creation of a new line of steel superyachts, which will start with a 50m project, followed by a 68m project and will develop further over the next few years to include a range of yachts up to 100m in length. The new line follows Riva’s recent launch of the 37m Mythos, the brand’s current flagship model.

The first 50m yacht by Riva will be built in the Ferretti Group's shipyards in Ancona, which specialise in the construction of steel, aluminum and composite material yachts between 45m and 90m in length. Under agreement with the owner, the yard are unable to announce the scheduled launch date for the 50m.

“Just over three months ago, again in Monte Carlo, we celebrated the debut of the 122-foot Mythos, the flagship of the brand and Riva's first yacht to be entirely built using a light alloy,” said Alberto Galassi during last week's Monaco Yacht Show. “Carlo Riva's idea to build large yachts is finally turning into reality.

Riva's new line concept

"Thanks to the support of our shareholders, who are truly in love with this brand, and thanks to the efforts of the numerous teams involved in this project, we will be able to offer owners magnificent works of art cruising the seas, characterised by Riva's unmistakable style. From now on, everybody will immediately recognise a Riva creation not only when looking at an Iseo, an 86-foot Domino or a 122-foot Mythos, but also when admiring one of these new yachts to be."

Riva's 50m project

The yard describes that the new line will include displacement yachts fully customisable by the owner in terms of fittings and interior decor and will be characterised by an innovative look and style, different to that of Riva's traditionally classic lines.
