The Making of a Riva Yacht
The Finest Personalization
The name of a boat cements the complete personalization of each Riva yacht. ‘Il Doge’ has been handcrafted exclusively for The Gritti Palace. Riva Yacht has always prided its hallmark as offering unmatchable quality, the finest craftsmanship and the latest in innovation. Read on to discover the making of our Riva yacht.
It's All in the Detail
Aquariva has become the symbol of Riva’s modern elegance and unique style and has met with great success on all continents, just like the legendary Aquarama. Expert shipbuilders know that the soul of a boat comes from the raw materials used to make it. That’s why Riva always uses only the best materials, and knows their secrets. Here a craftsman works on the boat to ensure the most perfect finish. Read on to learn more about the finest materials.
Only the Finest Materials
The Aquariva Super reflects Riva’s natural stylistic evolution from the past to modern times. The soft, stylish lines fully embody a sense of tradition. Here the fine, skillfully crafted timber – mahogany with maple inlays – is crafted for the deck. The finest craftsmanship enhances the pleasure of cruising on a timeless, classical yacht, offering unmatched comfort and emotions. Read on to explore the sourcing of our materials.
Every wood has its soul. Using only the finest materials, ash, mahogany and maple come together to form a sleek, elegant finish. The wood of ash trees is widely used in shipbuilding because it’s sturdy and yet light and flexible. It can exceed thirty meters in height during the two centuries of its lifetime. True mahogany is cultivated in tropical America and the West Indies, while maple comes from Italy, where eight types grow wild. This is, the making of… The Riva Yacht.
