Discover Riva, where timeless elegance meets innovation

The Riva shipyard was established in 1842 on Lake Iseo in Sarnico in Italy. A devastating storm severely damaged a large number of boats of local fishermen and prompted the young and newly-arrived boat builder Pietro Riva to offer help, working wonders in rebuilding and repairing most of the boats.

This was the beginning of the Riva Yachts legend and that of its founder. The first boats, which were characterized by style and personality, were developed and the brand quickly gained respect and recognition. Between 1920 and 1930, Serafino Riva, Pietro’s grandson, focused on power boating and produced racing boats that won prizes in national and international competitions.

1949 Serafino´s oldest son, Carlo Riva, took over the shipyard and started to build yachts in reference to American Chris Craft open style yachts. Carlo was driven by boundless passion for boats and his family business since he was a child. Riva by then had become the synonym of elegance, status and perfection and its unique yachts an object of desire for aristocrats and celebrities.

In September 1969 Carlo Riva sold the shipyard, maintaining his role of general manager from which he resigned in 1971, putting in place his brother-in-law, Gino Gervasoni. In 2000 the Italian yacht builder Ferretti Group took over Riva, carrying on the legacy of Pietro Riva following his vision.

The classic Riva Yachts consisted of the elegant wooden hull with seamless, deep red mahogany planking. Plenty of chrome, panoramic windows, a classic dashboard with white steering wheel, white leather armchairs and a padded reclining area are classic design features. Today, Riva continues to offer high-quality pleasure crafts and luxury yachts in various sizes with hulls made from fiberglass.
