Riva has launched Hull No. 1 of its new flagship model, the Mythos 122.

The launch in March at the CRN shipyard in Ancona, Italy, marks the largest yacht ever built by the 172-year-old brand. It’s also the first all-aluminum build for both Riva and the CRN shipyard.

The Mythos 122 was conceived as a symbol of renewed cooperation between Riva and CRN, both of which are part of The Ferretti Group. During the 1970s, the two brands built about eight motoryachts together.


Officina Italiana Design worked on the Mythos 122 (and the entire Riva range) along with Advanced Yacht Technology & Design and CRN’s technical and interior design departments.

Main features on the Mythos 122 evolved from the Riva’s 86 Domino. The owner of Hull No. 1 requested a three-cabin optional layout, while the standard version has four cabins (and there is an option for five cabins). Maximum speed is expected to be 27.5 knots with a cruising speed of 25 knots, driven by a pair of 3,510-mhp MTU 12V4000 M93L engines.

On board trials and fitting out are happening now, and the yacht is expected to be delivered to her owner in early May. She will cruise the Mediterranean and attend the Cannes Yachting Festival before going to Brazil, which is her owner’s home country.
