She is the result of the cooperation of the historic Riva shipyard

and Marc Newson, the renowned designer.

An explosive designing approach on the lines and hull of a

model which was associated right from the outset with high

aesthetics and elegance. The lines, shipwright’s geometry,

performance, reliability and finishings react to time in the same

manner: they are always up-to-date.

Holding events at Gagosian Gallery, USA, and the most

demanding catwalk, Monaco Yacht Show in Europe, the yacht

builders presented the new model. Aquariva is probably the

most commonly featured boat in the history of boatbuilding

with the greatest number of “wanna-be” copies produced by

“competitors”. Officina Ιtaliana Design, the technical office of

Riva Yachts, built a mere 22 numbered yachts created by the

Australian Marc Newson and bearing his name.

The Boat

This ultimate day cruiser has an overall length of 10.07 metres

and a 2.80-metre beam. Her narrow and fine silhouette offers

top performance while her efficient hull warrants smooth

rides. Powered by Yanmar and reaching a total of 380 HP, the

yacht reaches 36 knots at cruising speed and a top speed of 41

knots. According to the shipyard’s test results, her range is 150

nautical miles which is pretty satisfying considering her size and


This is a combination of classic and modern design, a perfectly

accurate mix. Without any touting and talking big, the designer

and the yacht builders delivered calmly and with a sort of muzzled snobbery a sense of balanced luxury. In terms of space, this yacht follows strictly the lines of her predecessors with the aft featuring a large sun deck, the centre hosting a comfy sofa with a snack and drinks dinette and the helm station at the bow with easy-to-read car-like instruments.

The entire deck is uniform, the eyes move from the aft to the fore without stopping on any obstacle. A great job has also been done

with the mix of materials and the colour palette.
