Riva Luxury Yacht - Rivarama Super
The 44 foot Rivarama Super has inherited the natural elegance and comfort of the original model which led her to be called "the floating suite" and be appointed Best European Open in the 40 to 60 foot category two years running. This model has, however, been improved with new details which make her even more special. Developed through the work of Officina Italiana Design, the exclusive designer of all the yachts in the Riva range, in association with AYT - Advanced Yacht Technology - Ferretti Group's naval research and design centre, and the team of architects and designers of Centro Stile Ferrettigroup, she features classical lines and extensive use of wood, also on the deck which has been completely covered in mahogany. These features make her the conceptual heir to the legendary Aquarama. Although she is a larger cabin cruiser, Rivarama Super maintains the class of her illustrious predecessor. The cockpit features all the accessories which are necessary to ensure the very best in comfort: from the electro-hydraulic bimini which provides shade from the sun even when at sea, to the folding teak table which can seat up to 8 guests. Besides the spacious stern sundeck, which provides safe, easy access to the water by means of three convenient steps in non-slip treated mahogany, there is another sunpad on the foredeck with an outer profile in polished stainless steel, equipped with a mattress clad in technical material which matches the mahogany of the deck. Two skylights are located aft of the forward sunpad. Designed as a yacht for two, Rivarama super features the innovative solution of just one Master cabin, located at bow, and offers all the comforts of a 5 star hotel, including a unique rapid cooling system for a bottle of champagne and a couple of fluted glasses. The use of valuable materials, the exquisite hand-made finishes, the excellent liveability and a top performance make Rivarama Super the ideal yacht for even the most demanding owner.

Luxury Yachts - Riva Yacht - 122' Mythos
Riva Yacht, the iconic brand of the Ferretti Group, launches its new flagship yacht, 122' Mythos. Riva Yacht 122' Mythos, the largest aluminium planing yacht ever produced by the historic shipyard, perfectly transfers the elegance, flair and clean lines featured by all Riva models to a new line built entirely in light aluminium alloy. Mauro Micheli, who founded Officina Italiana Design together with Sergio Beretta, explains the idea which inspired the new masterpiece by Riva: "Explaining a craft and its project is always more difficult than designing it. The idea and the line of the new 122' took 10 minutes, but the difference stands in the time dedicated to the definition of details, those making this model unique. 122' Mythos represents the 'large scale continuation' of the Domino, a model which got through the crisis in the most complicated period. I am never completely satisfied with my job, but in the case of 122' Mythos I repeat what I said for the Domino: this craft comes from instincts, this is why it will be awarded. The careful but not aggressive design will make this yacht a milestone of the nautical sector, just like Aquariva, Rivarama, Rivale, which are still being produced after so many years post-launch. The synergy we found with the Ferretti Group makes us stronger in our work. Together, instinct comes to light, embodied by a new model. This is a new chapter of Riva's history". The new flagship of Riva is more than 37 metre long and 7.60 metre wide. The planing aluminium hull gets to a peak speed of 27 knots, with a cruising speed of 25 knots, thanks to two MTU 12 V 4000 M 93L engines (preliminary data). The extremely elegant and spacious exteriors allow enjoying the time spent cruising together. The large main deck cockpit features a large and comfortable sun pad and a table which can host up to ten people. The salon and the dinette have large windows with an amazing panoramic view and are connected to the helm station; the wide g
