Riva’s story started in 1842 with the sudden storm that hit Lake Iseo. The local fishermen were left ravaged as all their boats were destroyed. This was a bad storm that Sarnico, Italy had ever seen. But as we always say, ‘There is a reason behind everything that happens!!’ A young craftsman, Pietro Riva, came forward to repair the vessels. He had just moved from Laglio, Near Coma, but in no time won the trust and hearts of the locals in Sarnico. This was the beginning of the making of two legends – Pietro Riva and the ‘Riva Yachts’.
It was in Sarnico that the first Riva yachts were released. In no time, they won overwhelming respect and recognition for their style and excellent designs. After that, the company never looked back. It has persistently achieved success in designing high-quality luxurious mega yachts. Riva Group is considered to be one of the best manufacturers of luxury fiberglass yachts in the world.
