The first model of the Riva Superyacht Division, the 50m motor yacht RACE debuted at the historic Arsenale of Venice. During the gala reception in the open-air museum of the Venetian lagoon, the yacht was unveiled in front of a large audience, including yacht owners from different parts of the world.
RACE was designed by Officina Italiana Design and the engineering team with the Ferretti Group Strategic Committee. Built with a sophisticated and sleek profile as well as great volume, the yacht represents the personality of the Riva brand. The latest technology and attention to detail provide excellent navigation capabilities.
“The largest Riva, the dream of Carlo Riva that came true, a boat of immense beauty, could only make its debut at the Arsenale, which has been for centuries the largest naval factory in the world. The dreams, the skill and the talent that inhabited this space are the same ones that have animated the Riva myth in 177 years of history, up to the birth of this incredible mega yacht. Today, in the eyes of our guests and enthusiasts, I saw the sincere emotion which is for Ferretti Group, and in particular for the Riva Superyachts Division, the most authentic gratification, a love at first sight.” – commented Alberto Galassi, CEO of Ferretti Group.
The event was supported by Ferretti Group, who collaborated with some big luxury brands, including Emirates, Jaguar Land Rover, Veuve Clicquot, Flos, Gruppo Giardini, Nardi and Osteria Francescana.
