The largest Riva ever built

Recently in Liguria, on the Italian Riviera, the largest yacht ever built by the Sarnico-based luxury boat-builder was launched.

A launch press conference took place in the Riva shipyard in La Spezia, where the yacht has been built and where two other units are in work. Furthermore, a gala dinner dedicated to Riva dealers and owners coming from all over the world took place in Portofino and Paraggi. The 115' Athena is 35,05 m long and 7,08 m wide. She has two MTU 12V 4000 M90 engines and can reach a maximum speed of 26,5 knots and a cruising speed of 23 knots.

By launching the 115' Athena, Riva states they are "writing a new page in the history of luxury motor yachts". Visitors to the Monaco Yacht Show, from 21st to the 24th of September in Monte Carlo, will be able to see for themselves.
