WATCH: Riva Flagship 50 Metri M/Y Fifty Launched

By George Bains

A private launch ceremony at the Riva shipyard in Ancona marked the launch of the Ferretti Group brand’s flagship yacht, M/Y Fifty. The 50 Metri superyacht is the latest embodiment of ‘Made in Italy’ luxury to be born out of the Riva Superyachts Division and is ready to take to the waters in style.

M/Y Fifty has her roots in the great dream by the genius of Carlo Riva, with the celebrated ‘Caravelle’ and ‘Atlantic’ series motoryachts of the 1960s and 70s, once again a made a reality.

50-metres in length and with a maximum beam of nine metres, M/Y Fifty was developed by the Riva Superyacht Division. The superyacht offers outstanding cruising experiences defined by comfort, attention to detail and an evolved vision of life at sea. It is these values that have made Riva a legendary name in international yachting for the last 179 years.

The video in the slider shows the development of the Riva flagship as she takes shape from a rough hull into the glistening and elegant superyacht that was launched at the Ancona shipyard.

She interprets Riva’s classic stylistic and aesthetic hallmarks, notably those of accurate sophistication in her blue-tinged shark grey colour, and the elegant blend of mahogany, steel and glass featured in her exteriors.

“Riva M/Y Fifty is the demonstration that we Italians know how to imagine and realise masterpieces like no one else in the world,” said Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi. “And at this difficult time, my thanks go to everyone whose skills and efforts have helped build this magnificent ship.

“Once upon a time, the expression ‘written on water’ was used to describe actions that have a fleeting impact. But what we have written on the water today in Ancona is another unforgettable and glorious page in Riva’s history. My recommendation for those in search of great emotions is to take a look at this new Riva and the breathtaking way she shines with style, legend and innovation, all thanks to the talent and expertise of the workers involved.”

The Riva 50 Metri is the fruit of a collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the firm founded by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta and the exclusive designer of all Riva models, and the team created to develop Riva’s new superyachts with the Product Strategy Committee led by Mr Piero Ferrari.
