In the world of boats, for many people, Riva is of the same caliber as a Ferrari, Maserati or Aston Martin. The brand equates to the good life and days full of fun.
Pietro Riva, originally a fisherman, founded the Riva shipyard in 1842 in Sarnico, on Lake Iseo, in Italy. When the shipyard was founded, the shipyard focused on the repair of ships and thus built up a good reputation due to the high quality of workmanship. Soon Riva turned to the complete construction of boats.
After the First World War, Riva changed direction. Serafino Riva, Pietro Riva’s grandson, took over at the helm of the company and Riva no longer built functional ships but started producing more luxurious, fast speedboats and yachts.
This change of strategy was not without success and Riva grew into a respected high-end boat builder in the 1930s. Under Serafino’s son Carlo Riva, the boat builder continued its success and Riva’s yachts were among the best in the market. The Riva Aquarama, the company’s best-known model, was also born during this period.
Now the Italian boat builder has launched the Rivamare. Designed by Mauro Michelli, with this new model from the beloved brand they add a new choice for those looking for a weekend cruiser.
The 12 meter long model has a retro look with beautiful smooth lines that lead the eye from the front to the back of the yacht. The appearance is a harmonious fusion of chrome and mahogany wood.
Although the appearance contains a number of classic features, the Rivamare is nevertheless extremely modern, with two 400hp Volvo engines that guarantee a top speed of 40 knots.
In the rear of the model are two panels that can be folded down to create a large swim platform normally only included on much larger yachts. This creates more space for sunbathing or faster access to the water.
