The story of Riva Yachts began in Sarnico, when after a fierce storm, Pietro Riva; a skilled carpenter began to fix the damaged boats in the harbour. Pietro then opened a shipyard in Sarnico from where the very first Riva creations were built. Riva Yachts became well-known in the shipping industry and continued to become successful even after Pietro’s son, Ernesto took over the management of the company.
Ernesto introduced many technical innovations within the company, which significantly raised the quality and fame of the Riva brand. Over the 1920’s and 30’s, the Riva family broke a number of records with its motorboats and speedboats in national and international competitions.
Carlo Riva took over in the 1950’s and directed the company towards pleasure boating. The Riva brand was already known for their yachts’ elegance, style and beauty, however the company still continued to strive for perfection. Popular with Royalty, as well as with many A-listers, Riva continues to uphold its image of elegance and luxury.
In May 2000, Riva joined the Ferretti Group, one of the World’s leading luxury yachting groups. After merging technology, design and boating efforts, Riva Yachts reinvented a contemporary and modern style which is considered to be true masterpieces.
