The Riva yachts: 27 to 164 feet of seduction
Of rare beauty and refinement, Riva yachts have always been a synonym for elegance, and simple luxury. What really stands out in all Riva yachts, open, flybridge and coupé, are the interiors. Expression of Italian artisan skill thanks to some of the most sought-after furnishings currently available on the market, Riva yachts are refined floating dwellings. The furnishings are a collection of styles, all the accessories, draw from the very best of Italian artisan traditions. The unique comfort these yachts offer seduce even the most demanding of owners. “Tan in the shade” thanks to a sundeck awning in perforated, technological TNT material which allows for ventilation, whilst sipping a cool glass of champagne, stored in a special quick chill fridge, or own a pair of exclusive, personalized water-skis. These are some of the elements which make Riva an immediately recognizable luxury brand.
Since the ‘50s, a true gallery of famous people have enjoyed, and indeed continue to enjoy, a Riva yacht: from Brigitte Bardot, with her Florida to King Hussein of Jordan, who moored his Super Aquarama in Santa Margherita Ligure; from Anita Ekberg, who purchased a Tritone where she could indulge in her own personal Dolce Vita, to Elisabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, who used a Junior as a tender for their yacht, and the Shah of Persia, who fell in love with the Riva 2000. Lastly, Sofia Loren and Sean Connery, who bought a Rudy three years after giving up filming the famous 007 series. Though growing and evolving, Riva remains a luxury icon. A brand where the eccentricity of passing trends does not have the upper hand, but rather long-lasting quality, painstaking care over detail, that touch of glamour which underlines the correct balance between tradition and modernity.
