RIVA HISTORY & OVERVIEW

Established: 1842

Located: Sarnico, Italy

Construction: Fiberglass

Category: Luxury Yachts, Motoryachts

Worth Noting: The Last Aquarmara Special marked the end of Riva’s wooden runabout production in 1996.

Pietro Riva founded Riva Yachts in 1842 following a devastating storm in Sarnico, Italy that destroyed the boats of local fishermen. Riva’s legend began when Pietro began repairing the damaged boats. Pietro’s son, Ernesto Riva, succeeded his father and introduced internal combustion engines on Riva boats.

Throughout the 1920’s and 1930’s, Riva’s production shifted from transportation to power boating. Its racing yachts set national and international records.

During the 1950’s, Carlo Riva led the family company with a line of wooden yachts. Riva Yachts became the object of desire among elite boaters. In 1956, Riva began working with designer and architect, Giorgio Barilani, which led to the creation of Aquarama, Riva’s legendary symbol of excellence.

Riva’s luxury fiberglass yachts represent craftsmanship, unmatchable quality, and innovation. In 2000, the Ferretti Group took over the Riva Boatyard with the goal to relaunch the brand by focusing on quality, design, and uniqueness.
