Iconic 170-year-old Italian brand Riva Yachts is celebrated for the world over for beautiful wooden boats that evoke the Dolce Vita
days when Brigitte Bardot, Sophia Loren, Aristotle Onassis and Prince Ranier of Monaco were regularly seen at the helm of a Riva craft. While the company has not abandoned its heritage, which has always been more about style than size – in 2010 they collaborated with Gucci on a special edition of their classic Aquariva model – their newly unveiled flagship is the largest Riva luxury yacht
ever built, and the first to be constructed entirely in lightweight aluminum alloy.
