Mythos is the Largest Yacht Ever Built by Riva shipyard

Now part of the Feretti Group, Riva shipyard was founded back in 1842, by young carpentry enthusiast Pietro Riva. He had arrived in Sarnico, a province of Bergamo in Lombardy, Italy, and then opened his own shipyard there. A whopping 17 decades have passed since the foundation of Riva Shipyard and they have recently unveiled their fist aluminum boat, Mythos, a gorgeous 122 feet (37 meters) motor yacht.

The CRN shipyard has been commissioned to build this magnificent vessel, in Ancona. CRN is also under Feretti tutelage, having built other large yachts part of Riva’s fleet during the ‘50s and the ‘60s. The design aspect of Riva’s current fleet was taken over by Mauro Micheli of Officina Italiana Design, in close collaboration with Feretti’s own Advanced Yacht Design crew.

The fellow wishes to state: “This craft comes from instincts, this is why it will be awarded. The careful but not aggressive design will make this yacht a milestone of the nautical sector, just like Aquariva, Rivarama, Rivale, which are still being produced after so many years post-launch.”

Mythos’ respectable measurements, in excess of 37 meters in length and 7.6 meters wide, should provide enough space and comfort to all its guests. And they do, the superyacht being able to accommodate as many as 10 guests in three possible cabin layouts – this is fully dependable on the owner’s request, in case he wishes for three, four or five cabins.

In terms of amenities, Mythos boasts with a lavish main deck cockpit garnished with a cozy, impressive sun pad and a large table which can accommodate up to 10 guests, dinette with huge windows that can provide breathtaking panoramas, a flybridge and a luxurious salon.

The lower deck is where the guest cabins and the owner’s suite are located, while, towards the bow, we can find the crew area, divided in two twin crew cabins and a captain’s cabin. And wait till you see the entertainment section, with its staggering Jacuzzi swimming pool surrounded by lavish sunbathing sofas, a foldable table ad dinette area.

We can’t say much about Mythos’ propulsion system, though. We only know that it is powered by a pair of MTU 4000 Series diesel engines which help the vessel achieve top speeds of 27 knots and cruising speeds of an impressive 25 knots. Sadly, we got no clue about the pricing.
