A masterpiece of nautical engineering, Made in Italy class and aesthetics at their maximum levels. Modernity and loyalty to high craftsmanship traditions and attention to details. These are the distinctive features of every Riva creation, the shipyard founded in Sarnico (BG), with a 177-year-long history. A worldwide nautical legend. Conceived by the Superyachts Division, the new 50-metre motorboat, in steel with aluminium superstructure and a clean and elegant profile with decisive and strong lines, is the continuation of Carlo Riva’s dream – a key player in the nautical world in the 1960s and ‘70s, who created the famous steel motor yacht in the Caravelle and Atlantic series – to create avantgarde models with high aesthetic standards, style and innovation. The yacht is the joint venture between Officina Italiana Design, the design studio founded by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta and which exclusively designs all the Riva range, and the engineering team that deals with creating the new Riva super yachts with the Strategic Product Committee of the Ferretti Group, a world leader in the design, study, construction and sales of recreational boats, with a unique portfolio of prestigious and exclusive brands: Ferretti Yachts, Pershing, Itama, Mochi Craft, CRN, Custon Line and, of course, Riva. The model in this special collection is called Race and the name highlights its determined spirit and desire to speed over the sea. Launched at the shipyard in Ancona and built for Piero Ferrari, son of Enzo, aka Drake, founder of the team from Maranello. Ferrari, known for his great passion for planes and boats, is Vice President of the Ferretti Group and second main shareholder with 13.2% after Chinaman Weichai, who has owned the rest of the Group’s capital since 2012 – as well as member of the Strategic Committee linked to the Ferretti Group product.
