New Model: Riva 130 Bellissima

The sea is now a more beautiful place, forty metres length overall more beautiful to be precise, after the launch of Riva 130 Bellissima hull number one in La Spezia for an American owner. In Riva’s 180th anniversary year, the legendary Italian name has launched its largest fiberglass build to date, and a new flagship for its flybridge range. With a planning hull and over forty metres in length overall and a magnificent fusion of fine design, naval engineering, expert craftsmanship and high technology. Riva 130 Bellissima is the first planning flybridge in the range to extend across three real decks, with a semi-wide-body design, while remaining under 300 GT. The brainchild of Mauro Micheli, founder with Sergio Beretta of Officina Italiana Design, the firm that has designed all Riva’s yachts since 1991, who  working in partnership with the Strategic Product Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department. Carbon fibre, steel and glass are the distinctive features of the exterior styling. Riva 130 Bellissima is characterised by three simple lines along the silhouette: the windshield is made with spherical crystals and features the typical counter-curvature, while the hull window design is based on a black line that runs along the silvery side of the boat and rises towards the deck. Extensive glazed surfaces highlight the abundance of natural light that floods into the settings on the main and upper decks, offering magnificent panoramic views and gorgeously light-filled interiors. Aft, the all-glass fashion plates enhance the aerodynamics of the yacht and tell a story of appeal and elegance. The air intake grills and carbon fibre detailing are a reference to traditional car design, while the hard top brings dynamism and style with its sporty personality. 130 Bellissima exteriors introduce a new concept for the stern area, which is lower, open to the water, and divided into a large Beach Club and a generous cockpit: over sixty square metres of liveable space. The jet ski, tender and seabob are stored in the port hull side. In the bow, the owner is accommodated in a spacious area divided into a lounge, a large sun pad and other more intimate, private spaces. On the upper deck where the outdoor area in the stern is set up as a dining area seating ten, the side walkways create two closed, private balconies. Above this is the sundeck, an area where guests can be invited for cocktails in a relaxing atmosphere. Riva 130 Bellissima’s interiors feature a main saloon surrounded by glass and light, with an unimpeded 270-degree view and ceilings over two metres high: a one-of-a-kind space featuring an interplay between fine glass transparencies and polished rosewood. Clever use is made of the full beam, measuring almost eight metres. The cabin layout puts the master suite on the main deck and four cabins on the lower deck, separated by a large lobby and all with en-suite bathrooms. Riva 130 Bellissima is powered by twin MTU 2638ph engines, giving a top speed of 22 knots and a cruise twenty.  Currently Riva has seven more 130 Bellissima in build with order book going into 2026.
