Two years earlier, in Sarnico, RAM – Revisione e Assistenza Motoscafi had started the tradition of the Riva Boat Services, fully-fledged centres for assistance, sale and laying-up of Riva boats.

Again on the intuition of Carlo Riva. He was the first to understand that the excellence of his production required the same excellence in service. After RAM and the Monaco Boat Service, the centres in Cannes and St Tropez were opened. In 1975, the first Italian Private Port was inaugurated: Porto Carlo Riva in Rapallo, which inherited the concept of nautical perfection of the Sarnico boatyard, rightfully putting the Riva name down in the history of world sailing.


When Riva joined the Ferretti Group - the world’s major group of luxury boating -  this marked the start of a new season of development.

With zeal bordering on mania, Riva’s engineering department began to study new models, combining the product knowledge of the chairman, Ferretti, with design by Mauro Micheli and the Officina Italiana Design. The new Riva style was created from this fusion between nautical technology and design.

In November 2003, the new shipyard in La Spezia started to specialize in building yachts over 65 feet long, whilst Sarnico continued to produce smaller boats like the Aquariva and Rivarama, keeping up the Riva legend. This new challenge on international markets was once again enthusiastically received. Innovation does not mean forgetting about the historical Riva runabouts, which are not just legendary memories, but continue to sail, thanks to RAM, the Monaco Boat Service and the other centres.
