First 50m Riva superyacht Race premieres

Riva"s first 50 metre superyacht Race, the flagship of the Riva range, has had its official premiere in Venice. The yacht was unveiled at an exclusive and theatrical event at the historic Arsenale of Venice. It comes after the yacht hit the water for the first time at Riva"s Ancona based shipyard in March. 

Developed in collaboration with Officina Italian Design, the Riva Superyacht series will eventually stretch up to 90 metres. The four-deck Riva 50M features accommodation for 12 guests in five cabins, including a main deck master suite. Other key features include a jacuzzi on the sundeck, a stern garage with enough room to house a Williams dieseljet 625 tender and a foredeck storage area suitable for a pair of jet skis. In an innovative move, the galley is situated on the lower deck, with a central dumb waiter allowing for discreet service to all four decks.

The Riva 50M is reminiscent of classic Carlo Riva motor yachts, inspired by the Carvelle line from the 1960s and 70s. Riva is well known for its classic launches but it"s lesser known that between 1960-70 Carlo Riva created four superyacht ranges called Carvelle, Marco Polo, Vespucci and Atlantic.

The Riva 50M has been built from light aluminium alloy and will be offered as a semi-custom yacht, with an interior design created to the owner’s choice, something not seen on smaller Rivas previously. 

Race is set to appear at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
