Riva Unveils Steel 50-meter Superyacht At MYS 2014

Riva has no plans of remaining a small motoryacht builder for very long. At the just concluded 2014 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS). There will be a line of steel superyachts but Riva plans to start with a 50-meter luxury yacht. The manufacturer's largest yacht to-date is the Riva Mythos 122-footer "Sol" which took over from the 86 Domino as the flagship.

As mentioned, the new steel line is starting with a 50-meter but will progress towards a 68-meter hull and eventually a 100-meter hull. The first 50-meter motor yacht by Riva will be built in the Group‘s shipyards in Ancona, which specialize in the construction of steel, aluminum and composite material yachts between 45 and 90-meters in length and which will witness the birth of this new yacht. 50 meters and a 9-meter beam, will be a displacement yacht with 4 decks, capable of hosting up to twelve people plus a crew of nine. 

The new 50-meter Riva may be equipped with two possible engine sets: either two CAT C32 2100 rpm engines or two MAN D2862 LE 466 2100 rpm engines, both capable of pushing the yacht to a maximum speed of 15-knots and a cruising speed of 14-knots. The transatlantic range at a cost-saving cruising speed of 11-knots is extremely interesting, as it will reach 3,800 nautical miles. Two zero speed stabilizing fins will be installed standard, to ensure maximum comfort and stability even when the yacht is at anchor.
