Riva 50m: the steel dream taking shape
Riva 50m – Riva Superyachts Division’s firstborn
The dream of Riva super yachts in steel and aluminium is taking a step closer to becoming a reality. The new 50-metre Riva is the first born of the Riva Superyachts Division, and the heir to the celebrated ‘Caravelle’, ‘Atlantic’, ‘Marco Polo’ and ‘Vespucci’ M/Y series, entirely customisable to meet the demands of owners in terms of layout and interior design. The steel hull of the new superyacht measures 50 metres in length overall with a maximum beam of 9 metres. The ‘star’ of a spectacular manoeuvre to enter the brand new and innovative premises for the Riva Superyachts Division at the Super Yacht Yard in Ancona, reserved by Ferretti Group for the construction of its 28- to 90-metre yachts in light alloy, steel and fibreglass for the CRN, Pershing, Custom Line and Riva brands.
The 50-metre Riva has four decks. The master suite on the main deck is preceded by a luxurious VIP cabin. There are another 4 VIP suites on the lower deck, accommodating a total of 12 people. The lower deck also houses the 4 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: an innovative choice enabling all decks to be served via a convenient dumbwaiter. The large beach club at the stern is both an incredibly generous 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 to guarantee maximum fun, with a carbon davit for easy launching. The sun deck is completed by a Jacuzzi, a sun pad and a generous area for dining and relaxing.
The 50 metre Riva will be launched in 2018: another milestone event in the history of the brand and the yachting industry.
