Riva’s new flagship – The Riva 122 Mythos

Riva 122 Mythos_01Riva’s new flagship, the Riva 122 Mythos is the largest yacht ever produced by Riva. It is also the first yacht by Riva completely built in light aluminum alloy.

The Riva 122 Mythos draws inspiration from the 86’ Domino, whose main stylistic features have been taken up and revamped on this almost 38 meter long yacht. This new flagship is a ‘100% Riva’ model, as confirmed by its clean lines, a painstaking care for details, the selection of traditional materials, like steel, wood and leather, which give every Riva yacht a unique, timeless flair.

The main materials used on this yacht include Canaletto walnut, in a light, softer shade – and specially selected by the owner for all the yacht interiors – leather and chromium-plated steel, in line with Riva’s traditional style. Every detail is characterized by essential, clean lines, which result in a timeless, extremely natural and yet elegant style.

Riva 122 Mythos_04The large uninterrupted glazing, which runs along the entire main deck, offers a breathtaking panoramic view and lets in plenty of light into the day area, connected to the raised pilot station and to the forward galley.
The salon and the dining area have been conceived as an open space; the living area features 3 white leather sofas and 2 armchairs in a contrasting brown shade all signed by Cappellini.

The 55″ TV, which can be completely concealed in the ceiling, is placed inside one of the two lacquered and steel panels at the entrance to the salon when coming through the glass door from the cockpit. The living area also features a large coffee table designed by OID and lined with dark brown leather, a carpet by Bottega Conticelli, and a couple of “Atollo” lamps by Oluce, also to be found in the Owner’s suite.

Riva 122 Mythos_03The dining area is furnished with a large steel and glass table with 10 dark brown leather Minotti chairs, in pleasant contrast with the steel and white lacquered details. At the end of the open space, a white niche with its top lighting hosts a walnut and lacquered cabinet.

On this first Riva 122 Mythos, the very practical layout is further enhanced by the owner’s decision to have a spacious master stateroom and only two guest cabins. All three cabins are amidships, to ensure maximum comfort also when cruising, while the crew, quarters consisting of a captain’s cabin with ensuite bathroom and discreet shower stall and two twin crew cabins, are located forward.

Riva 122 Mythos_05The full-beam master stateroom is furnished with square and sober, natural wood furniture with dark brown (“Africa”) leather and chromium-plated steel details. Opposite the bed, placed at the center of the cabin, a low rectangular unit hosts the 46” TV with concealing mechanism and several storage compartments. Under the side glazing are a small starboard living area with a couple of brown leather couches and a wooden coffee table in between, and a portside office area with vanity/large central desk lined with leather and low side cabinets.

The VIP cabins have been furnished to match the style of the master stateroom, and are both fitted with a spacious bathroom and separate shower stall. The large side glazing ensures great brightness along the entire lower deck.

The aluminum planning hull can reach top recorded speed of 28,51 and a cruising speed of 26 knots, thanks to two MTU 12 V 4000 M 93L, 3510 mhp engines. This is a high-tech planning yacht ensuring great comfort and top performance in its class.

The high-tech shaft drive propulsion system is fitted with an elastic free standing gearbox to ensure maximum comfort and noise and vibration reduction. Propellers have been designed for utmost efficiency and outstanding performance in terms of both consumption and range. Maximum comfort is also guaranteed by the American Boat Thruster stabilizing system.
